Sudden change of shot from one viewpoint or location to another.

On television cuts occur on average about every 7 or 8 seconds.
Cutting may:
change the scene;
compress time;
vary the point of view; or
build up an image or idea.
Matched cut.
In a 'matched cut' a familiar relationship between the shots may make the change seem smooth:
continuity of direction;
completed action;
a similar centre of attention in the frame;
a one-step change of shot size (e.g. long to medium);
a change of angle (conventionally at least 30 degrees).
