What is a CLIP file?

Clip file extension has Clip Studio Format file type, developed by CELSYS, which is associated with the "raster image files" category.

 Images files edited in a 2D drawing application named Clip Studio Paint share this extension. A typical CLIP file stores an image composition, which can be multi-layered and include filters, shapes, text, etc. The older version of software used .LIP files for saving projects, but with the release of Clip Studio Paint 1.5.4 .CLIP files replaced those. CLIP files are utilized the same way Photoshop software uses its .PSD files – to save images and animation in a format that allows further editing later on.
