Keyboard shortcut mapping for "Overlay" Edit

Please add a mappable keyboard shortcut for the "Overlay" edit mode!

 

I often have to overcut hundreds of timecode-burn edits in a sequence using a new clean master, and would like to be able to mark in/out points on the timeline, based on the existing clip in V1, then edit the clip in the Source Monitor onto an empty track above that clip, without having to manually toggle source/track assignments. 

 

I basically want to be able to perform the same action that occurs when you drag a clip from the Source Monitor to the Program Monitor, then dropping it on the "Overlay" tile, except using a keyboard shortcut!

 

It really surprises me that this very useful edit mode can only be executed via drag and drop!

For the sake of this explanation, assume your video cut is on V1 and you want to add your new version to V2.

Set the track selector on the timeline side to V1. 

Move your CTI above the clip you want to replace.  This will automatically highlight it.

Mark the clip in-out (keyboard default "x")

Load your replacement clip in the source monitor.

Move the V1 indicator on the source side of the timeline to the V2 position.  (You only have to do this once.)

Hit overwrite (keyboard default ".")

Rinse and repeat.

 

Modify to taste.
