What is a CLIP file?
Illustrators use Clip Studio Paint to create comics, illustrations, and animations. The program saves illustrators' images as CLIP files. CLIP files are layer-based images, which are similar to Adobe Photoshop's .PSD files.
The CLIP format replaced the LIP format in March 2016, with the release of Clip Studio Paint 1.5.4. Notably, CLIP images are usually smaller in size and load more quickly than similar LIP images.
NOTE: Versions 1.5.4 and later of Clip Studio Paint can still open LIP files.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Clip
3.2 | 21 Votes
Replay clip created by Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA V), a drive-and-shoot sandbox game; stores controller input data that is referenced by the Rockstar editor to replay a sequence from gameplay.
The controller input data in the CLIP file is timed so when it is used during the replay it appears as if it was an actual video recording of the gameplay. However, you can export the replay to the .MP4 video format in the editor and it will be located in the AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA V\videos\rendered directory.
NOTE: CLIP files are named according to the time that they were created and are stored in the Rockstar Games\GTA V\Clips directory.
