Final Cut Pro X: source media files

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.
source media files

The original files (video, audio, and still images or graphics) that you import into Final Cut Pro. A clip you use in Final Cut Pro points to the location where the source media file is stored (either on your Mac or on a camcorder, camera, or storage device). Changes made to clips within Final Cut Pro do not affect the source media files.
