When Can Independent Clips Become Affiliated
with Existing Master Clips?
For an independent clip to become affiliated with a preexisting master clip when
using the Create Master Clips command, the following criteria must be met:
Â The master clip must contain all tracks that are used by the independent clip.
Â The master clip must contain all of the frames used by the independent clip.
Essentially, all media used by the independent clip must exist in the master clip.
However, it’s perfectly acceptable for a master clip to have more tracks or a longer
duration than an affiliate clip.
