      Has anyone heard of this and what is involved when using this type of editing?

      I have never heard of this before, but the term is used to describe magicans manipulating objects secretly. I guess you could say the goal of sleight of hand editing is to make it look like something it really wasn’t.

      Doesnt that pretty much describe just plain editing though?

      Not necessarily for example, making a scene look like it was shot in the same hour but really over several months might use sleight of hand editing to cover up differences (like a prop is different, he was holding the cup in the wrong hand so we get rid of all of those shots).

      On the other hand documentary’s aim to be as objective as possible. Make sense?

      Yeah, no offense Russ but I agree completely. I can’t stand that avatar. 😑
      What were we talking about again? Oh yeah, I see what you mean about slight of hand. Makes sense.
