Term: Parallel Editing

Share This
« Back to Glossary Index

 Parallel editing is a technique of cutting back and forth between actions occurring in at least two different locations and at different times. Typically, it is used to show differences or similarities between the alternating shots in contexts in which the temporal setting is not an important factor in conveying the message. A similar technique is cross-cutting.
