That's great. Does anybody know, generally speaking, is there usually an edit built into most pan whips or does it whip in whatever direction and it's still the same shot?

If my memory serves me correctly I think I came to the conclusion there were no cuts in a lot of the Magnolia ones apart from the obvious. I could be very wrong though.

Yeah, a traditional whip pan will have an edit. You just join the 2 edit points where the images are moving fast. And in the same direction. That's pretty much all you have to do... whip pans are surprisingly easy.

The whip pan in that clip works especially well because they're whipping from trees to trees. (And there's clearly an edit, cause the guy can't be standing in both places.)
