Okay. You don't see that clip in Proxy Folder but if you drag&drop that 
clip from Clip Folder to the Viewer or to Timeline, it will use its own

Yes, you are right and you explained it very well.

Again, you are right, but you can do that from Clip Folder and, there, 
if you have proxied, then Cinelerrea will use proxy files.

The clips in Clip Folder use proxy files if Proxy feature is enabled. I 
don't know how it works inside Cinelerrra program but, luckily for me, 
it works and I always use it.

I try  to explain better.
Usually proxy files of the media (videos, images) are created in the 
path (folder) where the media are.
But the proxy files of the Nested Clips are created in Cinelerra program 
path (folder).

For me the Nested section in the manual is explained well and may be it 
needs to add something. However I always must find a workaround to use 
Proxy and may be that, with my e-mail/screencasts, I confuse all of you.
