The inhibiting edit as an irrelevant visual distracter.
Author: Stephen. H. Bean.
In theory at least the Unmarked Edit should be invisible to the observer, however even with a perfect cut on motion, a trained eye may still perceive the point at which the scenes changes. It is the representational system, whether it be film at 24fps or video at 29.97 or 25 fps that stipulates the rate or speed of this scene change, therefore the rate chosen for the scene change is arbitrary. In other words it is technology driven and not based on examples from cognitive neurology nor on the physiological mechanisms of human sight nor upon the psychology of attention. The inhibiting edit may be seen as an irrelevant visual distracter.
Key words: attentional blink.
