Joining 2gb Quicktimes for editing in FCP6


I have been given footage from a 3 camera shoot, all the footage is broken up into the 2gb quicktimes. I need to join these together or create a reference QT for editing in in FCP 6.0.6

It seems if this could have easily been done within the utilities menu on the Firestore device itself ( Focus Enhancements ). But I dont have the device, just the clips stored on harddrives, though the footage is still in the originally created folders from the firestore.

If I create the reference movie in FCP, the only way I know how to do it is to lay the clips on a sequence and then export the Quicktime (but I feel this will kill the original timecode which I need to easily sync the angles for multiclip editing).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
wooohoooo! let's make some movie!

If you're using a Firestore F5 you could have used UDF format which supports up to 1.5 hrs per file. I assume there must be some sort of stitching utility out there, just google it up. For now you'll have to create a multiclip and resync for every break.
