Continuity Editing
The way almost all film and television is edited together. The best continuity editing is the kind you can't even notice.

The core of this style is the careful timing and use of cuts and other transitional effects. Deciding when to switch from one shot to the next can be crucial, as a mistimed cut will be very noticeable to the viewer.

The defining characteristic of Montages is that they don't follow the rules of continuity editing.
