Still no help? Jeeze...
Well if anyone is having trouble with this with any macro hot keying, this might help
If you set up the keystroke with multiple Mark In/Out hotkeys, sometimes it works, so if you do it like this:
eeeeee (mark in) b (go to next edit) rrrrrrrr (mark out)
then sometimes it works...if I find anything else, I'll try to post back in here since I'm the only one trying to figure out this solution..
I'm trying to figure out what your macro is supposed to do. That might help make some recommendations.
The macro is
Marking In where the CTI is, Moving to the Next Edit point, setting a Mark Out, Copying the selection between the Mark In and Mark Out, Lifting (or ripple deleting) the clip, Moving to the Previous Gap, and Pasting the Clip.
Basically it's just taking a clip from one point in the timeline, copying it, and then moving it to a gap in the timeline to continue my edit. I do my work by placing all the footage on the timeline, watching all clips, and then constructing the video from the very left, leaving 1 gap separating the actual video with the remaining footage. This way I can find footage and do the shortcut above on the keyboard without zooming out etc. Making it into one button though would definitely help save time.
It's a 7 step keystroke so bringing it down to 1 keystroke on the express keys on a Wacom Tablet would help save a lot of time.
Everything works, except the Mark In and Mark Out shortcuts. They happen faster than the Move To Next Edit shortcut, so instead of Marking an In point, and moving to the next edit, it sets a Mark In point first, and then a Mark out point which only selects one frame, and then continues with the rest of the keystroke.
Again, the hot keys happen like this:
Mark In, Mark out, Move To Next Edit Point, Lift, Move To Previous Gap, Paste
INSTEAD of this
Mark In, Move To Next Edit Point, Mark Out, Lift, Move To Previous Gap, Paste
Completely two different keystrokes with different outcomes.
For giggles, try this:
Mark Clip > Lift > Move to Previous Gap > Paste
Mark Clip is "Shift+/". That will mark whatever clip is under the CTI, but it is dependent on which track you have target. You could also try:
Mark Selection > Lift > Move to Previous Gap > Paste
Mark Selection (which is just "/"), but that will work on whatever clip or clips you have selected.
If those don't work, maybe:
Mark In > Move To Next Edit Point > Step Back > Mark Out > Lift > Move To Previous Gap > Paste
Step Back is just the left arrow.
