multicam workflow

Hi all! I did a three camera shoot of a two hour concert with three bands:

Camera 1 recorded the entire two hour event in one file
Camera 2 recorded the 2nd and 3rd bands over two files
Camera 3 recorded 3 songs of the first band, all of the 2nd and 3rd bands, each song is an individual file
All cameras recorded audio, but the final audio is from a separate source

In addition to videos of individual songs, I'd like to provide each of the three bands with a single switched video file of their entire set.

What would be the best workflow to set this up in multicam?

Is it possible/workable to make a multicam clip with several sync points in the camera 1 file?

Thanks for your insight!

Select all and make new multicam- as long as all cameras recorded audio it should sync automatically.

Creating multicam from non-SMPTE TC or manually marked sources will take a very long time - especially 2 hrs clip. So long that it's better to do the non audio sync method.

Unless the cams all have unified soundboard feed, there'll be sound delays from the main loud speakers. Back cams may be off several frames vs front cams.
