ok i open this thread to just say what i know about cancel in ST, this can be used to who doesnt know to understand better and for who always knew maybe to add/correct something if i am wrong, because i am writing this not only to explain but also to ask form confirmation.
My font is various thread on internet and Hyoga Book Hyper, ok let’s start:
definition of cancel: make a basic attack and before this attack animation is ended complete the command for a special or super move.
Reading the Yoga Book Hyper there are 2 types of cance:
DEGIWA CANCEL: reading various thread, i finally arrived at this conclusion: degiwa cancel can be splitted in 2 types the first one known as kara canceling (even if YBH doesnt talk about this name) that is if you cancel the animation of the basic attack before it begins to hit the other player or before it begins. This can be used to make a feint. I think that YBH talks about this type of canceling. However is also considered late cancel to interrupt the basic attack after it hit the other player, in this case the attack is a combo of x hits.
RENDA CANCEL: about this YBH is not very clear, i have read somewhere on internet that you can cancel a short attack in xx super and this is renda cancel, there is also said that you have to change from standing to crouching or viceversa when you make a renda cancel. Reading YBH and observing the cancel icons near the character attacjk i have this personal conclusion: renda cancel is a normal cancel that you do during a combo, it can be more or less usefull, i am a dictator player and for example you can use like this: cross up rh, standing short x2, crouching forward, double knee press, here we are: you can use the renda cancel btween crouching forward and dkp: you can cancel the fwd in dkp or xx super if the shorts connect or go for a jump after the fwd. To do the cancel you press the fwd twice: one for the fwd and one for the dkp or xx super. The point is the same as degiwa cancel: if u make the cancel you can make the kara type canceling completly before it hits the first crouching forward or go for late type cancel making a combo with one more hit.
So from YBH we can understand this:
- the renda cancel can be done also on a basic attack that is not a light attack, it depends from the attack.
- I have found where it says that you have to change position (stand/crouching) and cancel with a light attack when u are making a combo but is not so clear because if i use a late cancel i have seen that during a combo u can also cancel with a medium attack…
If anyone has questions or want to add something is welcome!
