How to create composite of already edited clip

I'm relatively new to hitfilm, so sorry if this is stupid.

I have a video where the audio is not synced up. Naturally, I put the video/audio combo into the hitfilm editor, unlinked them, and synced them up. I relinked them, and cut off the unnecessary beginning and end bits to get the cut that I want to edit. However, any way that I try to create a composite shot with the cut and synced clip, it just pulls the unedited, unsynced, 20 minute version from my media.

How do I create a composite shot with my clip from the timeline instead of my clip from the media folder? Do I need to export the entire thing and import the edited clip to my media? I sure hope not, that would get hellishly complicated.
