Master-Affiliate Clip Relationships

When you create a new subclip, it has master clip status. When you edit the subclip
into a sequence, an affiliate subclip is created. This behavior is identical to the behavior
of all other clips with master-affiliate relationships.

You don’t need to worry about master-affiliate relationships too much while you are
editing. These issues only become important when you are managing your media files
toward the end of a project, or when transferring your project and media files to
another editing system. For more information, see Volume IV, Chapter 4, “Working with
Master and Affiliate Clips.”
