Adobe Premiere…

Holding CMD and dragging-dropping a selected clip creates a *new* independent copy.

But, CMD+C of a selected clip creates an instance of that clip when I CMD+V it.

The difference:

A new copy applies changes (that I’ll make after its creation) only to itself.

Changes made to an instance will show in the clip you copied from too. That’s why it’s an instance or reference (like a pointer, in programming speak).
