Non-destructive simply put means that anything that you do to a file/clip in Final Cut Pro will not affect the source file. For example if I apply a sepia filter to a clip in Final Cut, it will not affect the actual Quicktime file in the Finder. To have the Quicktime file in the Finder affected by the applied filter, you would have to output a new Quicktime movie.

The same non-destructive relationship exists between the clips in the File Browser and the clips in a Sequence. If you apply a filter to a clip in a Sequence it will not affect the source clip in the File Browser. However you can make a change to a clip in the File Browser, those changes will stay with that clip the next time you access it from the File Browser. For example if you had a 15 minute interview clip that you were going to be using numerous clips from, and the clip needed color correction. You would perform the color correction to the clip in the File Browser instead of having to apply it individually to the numerous references in your Sequence.
