In visual novels, a transition is most similar to the transitions films use. These are visual techniques used to move from scene to scene or shot to shot, generally indicating a shift in mood, passage of time, or change in point-of-view. Common transition types are the dissolve, the wipe, the cutaway, the match cut, the fade, and the L cut. Directors of visual novels will wish to research these terms in more depth to decide which transition suits their scene best.
