Post The flow between clips
I`d be very interested in hearing opinions on what makes for the best flow between clips. With multi-axis movement now possible for many of us, does it not make sense to try to make the dolly/pan/tilt/focus movements we do flow from one clip to the next? An example might be a push into a scene followed by a pan to the right and upwards. The next clip carries on from the end of this movement as exactly as possible and then perhaps reverses it towards the ground again. Wouldn`t this be cool or could it, like anything else, be overdone? It could be made to feel like a journey of exploration in nature.
"You may say, I`m a dreamer" but am I "the only one" to think this could be made to work? Or all too clever for its own good?

It's good / standard editing practice to choose clips with compatible motion / subject matter / association.

Anyone who has studied film or worked or had experience as an editor is looking for clips that work together rather than just line each clip up one after another, and in the final product probably makes one sequence stand out more than another.

When I was studying film we had exactly this as part of our evaluation - we were all given the same set of 20 or so clips of an automated factory construction line, and had to edit together in a logical sequence.
