Im trying to understand what it is your trying to do. Im assuming that you are trying to assign a timecode to each clip.

In FCP you can assign new timecode using aux tC. By opening the clip in the viewer, you can use the Modify>TC feature. Check off the aux tc line, dont touch the original TC. Assign a new timecode, click ok.

Then ctrl click on the timecode window on the upper right corner of the viewer window. then check off view aux tc. You have to do that for each clip. Now you can edit easier. I hope this helps a bit.

Remember that the TC of the clip and the timeline TC dont have to do with eachother. You can alter the timecode of the timeline also, as in cases where video cameras dont output tc to recorders or vice versa and you want to match the timecode of the audio to that of the video.

Please check this out to see if this will help your situation. Remember dont touch the original tc, which I think you mentioned that you dont have.
