You can now allow users to enter different shot types to create a shooting script for their project. Now you can add the following types of cut lines in a script:
Camera Shot: You can add a camera shot in a script along with a solid or dashed line. This information helps studio personnel identify and prepare for changes to camera, camera position, or effects at the specified point in the scene.
EWS (Extreme Wide Shot): EWS is a view far from the subject. The subject is not visible due to the distance. EWS is often used as an establishing shot. For example, a shot showing a river and a mountain with a subject hardly visible.
VWS (Very Wide Shot): A view in which subject is visible. VWS emphasizes on placing the subjects in their environment. For example, a girl standing near the river in which you can make out that a girl is standing.
WS (Wide Shot): The subject takes up the full frame or as much as comfortably possible. For example, a girl in the story is emphasis of the shot.
MS (Mid Shot): MS shows some part of the subject in more detail but still gives an impression of the whole subject. The MS view is typically how you see a person you talk to. While talking, you don’t pay attention to a person’s lower body, so that part is irrelevant in this scene.
MCU (Medium Close Up): MCU is half way between an MS and a CU.
CU (Close Up): In CU, a certain feature or part of the subject takes up the whole frame. For example, a shot showing just the face of a girl.
ECU (Extreme Close Up): The ECU gets right in and shows extreme detail. For example, close up of a subject’s nose while the subject is trying to smell something.
Cut-In: Cut in shows some part of the subject in detail. Such as hands of a subject holding a gun and pulling the trigger slowly in a scene.
CA (Cutaway): CA is a shot of something other than the subject. For example, a procession of people passing by.
Two-Shot: A Two-Shot includes two people. The detail/distance is similar to a mid shot (MS).
Over-the-Shoulder Shot (OSS): OSS is a shot of the camera focusing from behind a person at the subject.
Noddy Shot: Noddy shot is someone listening and reacting to the subject.
Point-of-View Shot (POV): POV shows a view from a subject's perspective. For example, a shot in which a race car driver examining a race track and only the race track is shown.
Weather Shot: In this shot, the subject is the weather. This shot is also used for other purposes, such as for background for graphics.
