the sequence format
Â Nonmatching clip: A clip whose media file format doesn’t match the sequence format
Â Real-time nonmatching clip: A nonmatching clip that plays back in real time in a
mixed-format sequence (real-time clip for short)
Â Non-real-time nonmatching clip: A nonmatching clip that cannot play back in real
time and therefore must be rendered (non-real-time clip for short). In previous
versions of Final Cut Pro, all nonmatching clips were non-real-time clips.
