Changing the Properties of Affiliate Clips

Because master clips and their affiliate clips share certain properties, you need only
change the property of one of the master or affiliate clips to change that property in all
of them. For instance, if you want to change a clip’s name, it doesn’t matter whether
you change the name in the master clip or any of its affiliate clips. Since they all share
the same name property, all the clips will have the new name.

Most properties are shared between master and affiliate clips, but there are a few
exceptions. For example, In and Out points are unique to each master and affiliate clip,
so trimming one clip doesn’t affect the duration of all the other affiliated clips. For
more information about clip properties, see Volume IV, Chapter 3, “Elements of a
Final Cut Pro Project.”
