After I have created a movie in the Media Browser can I delete the clips in the Event Library, or does the Project still refer to these clips?

Many thanks!

    Be careful of deleting Events.
    Do this only if:
    1) You have no need to continue editing the movie
    2) You have a backup of some type so you can reimport the video if you ever need it (for example, the original DV tape, or a disk image of an SDHC card)
    3) You don't need this video for any other projects
    4) You have Shared the movie in every possible format you will ever need.

    The Event contains the video.
    The Project contains a text file with pointers to the video in the Event.
