Perfect Record wrote:Move selected marker to cursor. Control + Enter
Macros are a wonderful thing. I've built a couple to overcome some of the annoying things that can happen, such as when you've done a Source-Destination edit, so that now the left black bracket is placed at the end of the Destination assembly, but you now go into the crossfade and wind up with the "In" clip being shifted to the left - leaving the black bracket hanging out there in space instead of nuzzled up next to the end of the clip. With my macro, with one keystroke I jump the cursor to the end, and reposition the black bracket to where it should be.
Another one is for concert recordings, where I might be late placing the markers at the beginnings of pieces or movements (my mongoose-like reaction times being what they are). As long as I'm reasonably close, I can jump the cursor to a marker, reposition it (the cursor) manually to the actual start of the music, then hit my Macro keystroke, which nudges the cursor back my preferred pre-roll amount, moves the (selected) marker to that location, jumps the cursor to the next marker, and selects it. From that point on, it's just a matter of placing the cursor, then hitting a key, placing the cursor, hitting a key... Once it's all done, it's a simple matter to "CD Mark Groups", and blam, I've got my CD Image practically finished.
If I have a chance before showtime, I'll type the program into the Notes tab, then highlight and copy each title, to paste it into the Marker name field as it's created. This way, because "CD Mark Groups" takes each Track's name from its Marker, I'm that much closer to being done. I'll throw in a couple of Default Fade-Ins and Outs here and there, finish up the CD Text, create the PMI, then pop in a blank CDr to burn while I go start coiling up mic cables. On a good day, I can place a finished, edited CD into the hands of the performer within forty minutes of the end of the show, and be almost ready to load out.
