Multiclip edit

I have 3 tracks sync'd on my timeline. I have mastered audio sync'd as well so I deleted the audio from each of the three video tracks. This edit is of a concert. The concert lasted for about 70 minutes so there is 2-3 tape changes. I sync'd each to the mastered audio. I don't have inpoints or timecode to use to create my multiclip. I added slugs to fill the gaps between tape changes. Do I need to trim the fronts of each track to make sure they start at the same time and then create a self contained movie from each track and then use those to make my multiclip edit or can I simply do it from the timeline? I captured using Pro Res HQ so the file sizes are big and to make three new self contained movies would be a hassle.
