Photo Moment - March 15, 2021

What this tip is about…

You're on your way to becoming a macro master… but why oh why do you have to repeat yourself so many ties? Fret not, for it's possible to not only duplicate, but make subtle edits and even corrections to complicated macros but just editing a line of code.

I know what you're thinking — “I'm no software engineer!!” — don't worry, neither am I. But you'll learn in this video just how easy it can be to replicate a few lines of code, and then identify and change the ones you need. 

Here you'll learn how to take a macro that loads camera 1 and a graphic for camera 1, and then replicate and edit that to switch to CAM 2 and graphic 2… CAM 3 and graphics 3… and so on! This is building off of tip #002, so if you missed that one, be sure you go back and watch it!
