    I get confused when using a clip several times in a project.
    Different segments of the clip are being used, and different lengths.
    When clicking it up in preview to change the i/o points, it
    feels like I’ll mess up the times in the earlier clip.

    Is it better to reimport the clip every time it is used?

    As long as you’re bringing the clip into the preview window from the browser, then no worries. If you’re double clicking it from the timeline and resetting ins and outs, that’s when it will get messed up. I wouldn’t re-import a clip every time I was going to use it.
