Time Code as External Sync & Multiclip

Ok, I shot an event with 3 z1u's. We synced the timecode on each camera with the remote. I just started editing and set up a multiclip in FCP- 6.0. The first 20 minutes worked great - all 3 cameras recorded straight through. Then it appears that the cameras were stopped and maybe turned off. Now the timecode can't sync up to make the multiclip to be able to finish editing the tape. This is our first time syncing the cameras this way. It says that it should keep the Free Run clock counting regardless if the cameras are on or recording.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

You'll need to make separate clip from the timecode break onwards and bring that into the multiclip as a separate stream.

As far as I know, Multiclip only takes one sync point per stream, so if there are timecode breaks (and you captured over them) then Multiclip will ignore that.
