How do you cut the master by referring to a timecode list without the timecode being burned into the picture?

I gave my friend a copy of the raw footage of her event with timecode burned in so she could pick the parts she wants me to string together into a simple edit. I added the timecode window in Compressor.

Now I'm sitting here realizing that once I chop out the first segment the remaining material in the timeline will slide forward, causing her timecode notes to be off. It occurs to me that before editing I could add a continuous title consisting of timecode, which I would somehow cut along with the actual video, but surely there's a better way.

Just reimport and then overcut her burned in version edits with the matching raw footage.

I usually do this by putting the timeline and the timecode generator in a compound clip. The timecode overlay will stay in place as I cut the compound clip. Once done I just go into he compound clip and delete or disable the timecode.

You can also work in reverse order, doing the last notes first and so on.

You can work like Oliver suggested or replace the uneeded parts by a gap.

Not a problem. It's quite alright.

Start from the end and cut backwards.

With my compound clip method, you can turn the timecode overlay on/off to check your cuts (useful when the client says you cut in the wrong place) and you can cut from the start or the end of the clip - although I almost always start from the end and work backwards.
