Hi, I need some help with understanding what zones are?

Hello, I’m still a new creator on Episode and have been watching various tutorials where people would mention something about zones, but I still have no idea what they are and what they do.
I also see so many people writing something along the lines of “cut to zone 3” or “cut to zone 2” in their scripts. What does it do by typing that in the script, and do I have to put it in my script as well?

Depending on the size of the background, it can have 1 zone, 2 zones, 3 zones. If you ‘cut’ to a specific zone, that’s where you choose from which part of the background you want it to be shown on, if that makes sense. However, you can also pan to a zone, which means to kind of like move to that section of the bg. Im bad at explaining, sorry.
