What is the advantage of converting a subclip to a master clip - anyone know? If you do this, will you be able to match-frame to the original master clip it came from - or is this the reason its not a good idea to convert subclips to master clips?

Very quick to test your question ... and the answer is ...

 

Select the option in the bin to Edit Subclip, then use the option in that dialog to Convert to Master Clip ... and now, for any use of the now Master clip in a timeline, the F-match frame keyboard short takes you to the new Master Clip.

Sometimes it's helpful to understand what a "master clip" is in Adobe-speak.

 

That means it is the metadata reference holder for media used on a sequence. So as a Master Clip, it exists as a stand-alone bit of media, with its own data in the project file. Including any effects that are applied say in a sequence but done using the Master Clip tab ... which are then applied across all instances of that clip in the projects.

 

A subclip exists as a linked bit of the larger clip ... the full metadata is still with the larger clip, but Premiere 'recognizes' that sub-clip as a segment that can be used by itself. But the master clip for it is still the clip it was taken from.
