What is an Axial cut?

Generally, people call this a 'jump cut', where the viewer feels a jump in the visual. Here we will see how it looks. So what's the difference, Axial cut is a more specifically designed shot where the camera doesn't cross the Axis, instead, here the camera moves forward or backward in regard with the subject at a straight line. But Jumpcut is a more wide term and a jump can be felt because of different reasons. 1. Crossing the Axis of 180-degree. 2. Not applying the 30-degree rule. 3. Showing time span 4. or some other glitch like continuity, etc. So, Axial cut is a predefined relation between camera and subject on the same line of action by managing continuity. Most of the people also get confused between Cut on action and Axial cut but there's absolutely no need to be confused as in Cut on Action- we cut from a different angle but in Axial cut, we cut on a single line between camera and subject. Now it's time to watch some good use of this tool in cinema.
