Clip lists
You can use the scene selection function to select
clips from the clips saved on a disc and create a
cut edit list called a "clip list".
Clip lists have numbers beginning with E, for
example E0001. Up to 99 clip lists can be saved
on a disc.
Sub clips (clips in clip lists)
Clips (or parts of clips) that have been added to a
clip list are called "sub clips". Sub clips are
virtual editing data that specify ranges in the
original clips. You can use them without
modifying the original data.
The following figure illustrates the relation
between clips and sub clips.

Clip 1
Clip 2
Clip list
Sub clip 1 Sub clip 2 Sub clip 3
In the above example, the whole of clip 2 has been
added as sub clip 1, and the whole of clip 4 has
been added as sub clip 2.
Sub clip 3 is part of clip 3. Therefore, when clip
list E0001 is played back, clip 4 is played after
clip 2, and then the part of clip 3 shown in gray
color is played.
Clip list editing (current clip list)
To edit a clip list, you need to load the clip list
from the disc into the unit's internal memory.
The clip list which is currently loaded into the
unit memory is called the "current clip list".
The current clip list is always the target of sub clip
creation and editing. Clip list playback also uses
the current clip list.
After creating and editing a clip list, you need to
save it to disc.
