A Deliverable results when you create real-time settings for a clip, in the Deliverables menu. Deliverables are virtual clips associated with the original clip. You can:
- Rename or delete a Deliverable.
- Create multiple Deliverables for one clip, so that you can output many different formats of that clip.
- Save a Deliverable as a reusable Deliverable template.
- Load a Deliverable template onto another clip to apply the settings of that Deliverable to the clip.
- View information about Deliverables in the Desktop and library.
- Copy and paste deliverables between clips in the library and on the Desktop.
- Transfer clips and their Deliverables to other systems.
NoteAny change to the frame rate (timing) or resolution of the clip deletes all Deliverables attached to that clip.
The following illustrates how Deliverables can be used.
In the illustration, the Deliverable for Clip A is saved as a Deliverable template. Think of this template as an independent, reusable instance of the real-time settings that were created for Clip A (like how a word-processing template stores styles and formats).
When the template is applied to Clip B, it becomes a new Deliverable for clip B. This new Deliverable has the same real-time settings as Clip A, until you start changing it. For this operation to work, Clip A and B must have the same resolution, frame rate, and aspect ratio.
