Generating window burn from multiclip in FCS3

I've got a client that wants a window burn from a live event two-camera shoot. Ideally, it would look a lot like the preview window while editing multiclips, or perhaps the two angles stacked vertically, each angle with their own independent timecode burn.

I have already got each performance synced into its own multiclip in FCP and I'm hoping that there's an easy way to export it with a window burn.

Has anyone done this before?

Ideas?

Unless I misunderstand, one way would be to set the multiclip aside for the moment, and use the original clips, each on a track, but aligned or synced up, and then scale each down in the canvas, arrange them side by side, and put a timecode filter on one so time code is displayed in the canvas as well. Then export it out. I don't know a good way to describe this, so I hope that made sense.

You would of course do your editing with the multiclip.

Yeah, I was hoping to avoid that. It's not a ton of work, but it's an 8-step process and being basically lazy, I was hoping for a 1-step process.

The upside, of course, is that it will look exactly like I want.

For anyone's future reference, here's the Motion Tab settings for two-up:

[Both Clips] Scale: 48%
[Clip A] Center = 0 , 270
[Clip B] Center = 0 ,-270
