An L cut is a variant of a split edit film editing technique in which the audio from preceding scene overlaps the picture from the following scene, so that the audio cuts after the picture, and continues playing over the beginning of the next scene.
The name of the cut refers to the shape of audio and video pieces of the second of two scenes cut together when it was done on analog film[a] and this technique has been applied since sound film first appeared.
- The naming is obvious if you imagine a sound cinema film with sound track below.
