Q: Is it possible to not only import metadata for an audio file but even subclip information?

A: Yes, subclips can be imported as well as metadata.

If your .dbe (or .dbx) file contains subclip information you can import this, too. This will be done automatically during the import process.

Please note that subclip information can only be imported when the option "Send metadata to destination as early as possible" is switched off. This option would normally allow importing metadata before handling the media file but in this special case it won't work because subclip information requires an existing main media file first.

That means that during the operation there will be no announcement of a new element in DBM. It will appear afterwards.
