Capture and sync two canon XL2 in VEGAS

I recently did a small project with two canon xl2 cameras. I shot in 30P widescreen. I set both clocks with one remote in FREE RUN mode. They were synced nicely. Now, can someone tell me how to sync them together in VEGAS? Is there a particular trick or am I missing something. I had started and stopped many times with each camera. I feel that I still have to manually link each clip, I'm a little stumped. thanks. j

Since Vegas can't lock to external time code, you're going to have to this the hard way :-(

Enable the time code FX on all your clips (while they're still in the media pool so that you get true tape time code) and then match them up after they're on the timeline. You can delete the timecode FX after you're done editing.
