[Grant Peacock] "then importing to Final Cut 10.4.6, every effort at generating a multicam clip causes bizarre results. (using audio or timecode as the basis of the generator doesn't improve things)"

Before creating the multicam clip, make sure all material from each camera is labeled with a camera name or angle name in the inspector "info" tab. Select all clips from one camera then enter a name; repeat for the other. Then try sync by audio.

If you aren't sure which clips came from each camera, during import they can be automatically keyworded if you named the offload folders something unlike. E.g, C300HouseLeft, C300HouseRight, etc. That streamlines selecting them and labeling material from multiple cameras with similar codecs or filename conventions. Use FCPX Preferences>Import>"Keywords from folders".
