Anyway to separate video settings from still settings?

I usually shoot video with evaluated metering, Bright custom image. Whereas in still mode the settings are center-weighted and Natural. Everytime I switch from still to video or vice versa, I have to adjust the settings, which is annoying.

If your camera has user modes (like the K-5 and K-3 for example) you could save your stills settings to a user mode. Movie mode wouldn't be affected by the user mode settings. I would think you in this way could have separate settings for movie and stills.
