Working with Master Clips

As you already know, after source material has been captured and converted into digital media files, you access the media files by clicking on the clip icon in a project. A clip in a project represents a specific media file captured on your hard drive. The first representation of a media clip in the project is referred to as the master clip. Any use or duplication of that clip in the sequence or Browser creates clips that are affiliated with the master clip, but are not themselves master clips. In this section, you will work with master clips in different ways.

Revealing Master Clips

The first time a clip is either captured or imported into a project, it is given master clip status. A master clip icon doesn't look any different from other clip icons. But there are ways to find out whether or not a clip is a master clip. One way is to refer to the Master Clips column in the Browser window.
