A question for people in the UK (cuting=joining)?

When I was in film school I remember a professor of mine said in the UK instead of referring to editing as cutting they refer to it as joining.

It was to illustrate a different way of thinking. Instead of separating you bring together.

Is this true? How often do you hear it referred to as "joining"?

Thanks.

Also sorry if this is in the wrong section but I thought it would be the best place for it

We make cuts and edits - I never refer to it as joining.

When I lived in the land of panel beaters and cellulose sprayers (as automotive body shops are described in the UK) we always referred to the cut, the rough cut, the final cut, the cutting room -- though I can't specifically recall describing the editor as the cutter, neither can I remember ever using the term joiner except to describe a cabinet maker.

Nope, never heard it called that, but I like the idea!

Though, as an ex-film editor I can tell you that "Joining" is a lab term for "cement joining" as used by neg-cutters or pos-cutters, though in the days before tape splicing all film editing was done with cement joiner, so that maybe where the term comes from.

Agree with all the others - never heard it referred to as that. Normal terms in the UK are editing or cutting.

I've been the industry a fair while, met a lot of people, edited a lot of different type of work at different places. No-one I know calls it joining.
