For a film editor it is a cause for frequent amusement and/or irritation, that film reviewers are never able to point out the editor's contribution. If a film is described as very effectively cut but otherwise long and boring, the editor knows that the film may have contained conspicuous transitions of scenes that were invented during the shooting or in the scriptwriting, but that the editing was ineffective or even sloppy.

In this post were going to talk about eye trace. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the subject lately. Here’s what I’ve come to realize. Eye trace is a simple concept to begin with, and if you think about it in your everyday editing it’ll improve so many little things.

In a study released in mid-2008, neuroscientists noted that certain styles of motion pictures are capable of exerting "considerable control over brain activity." In the study that used fMRI imaging to study neocortex response, researchers found that the level of control exerted was linked directly to the film’s editing and directing style.

Using advanced functional imaging methods, New York University neuroscientists have found that certain motion pictures can exert considerable control over brain activity. Moreover, the impact of films varies according to movie content, editing, and directing style.
