Updates a clip/blend

NLE clips, like loops and simple blends, must be updated any time one of their source clip(s) has their animation data changed. For example, if you change a key on a marker in the clip that a loop is looping, then the loop must be updated, or re-evaluated. Normally, this happens for you as you are changing values in the GUI. However, if you change animation data during a script, the loop is not updated until the script finishes executing. This enables you to update the loop (or other blend type) while a script is executing.

This command is useful if you need to query the blend for a value after you have changed some animation data.
