In general, the goal is to edit a scene with seamless continuity to drive the plot of the film. The Jump Cut neglects this principle. The image will "jump" at the cuts in the action. There are several forms: posture, emotional state, or appearance of the characters changing at the cut. The background of a person changing at a constant camera angle. (Change of location, change of weather, day and night) - similar camera angles and setting parameters from different takes can be combined. It is up to the director's creative discretion.
Jean Luc Godard is credited with the invention of the Jump Cut. He used this edit in the Film "Breathless" (À bout de Soufflé). The initial cut of the film seemed too long to Godard, so he cut most of the film's scenes at emotional peaks rather than letting them play out.
