Lesson 12. Subclips and Virtual Clips > Compiling virtual clips

Compiling virtual clips

When a virtual clip is in its final form and needs no more changes, you can compile the source components into an actual clip. This step saves time in previewing and eliminates the need to keep the source material in the Timeline. Another advantage is that deleting any of the clips in the source area in the Timeline or deleting associated master clips in the Project window has no effect on the compiled clip.

Now that your second virtual clip is finished, you can compile it. In addition to greatly reducing the time it takes to preview and export movies, compiling a virtual clip prevents further changes at the source clip level. You can still edit the compiled clip as you can any other clip, and if you want to make changes at the source clip level, you can edit the clips and compile again.
