Why don't you  just use a wrapper script to get this running, like

#!/bin/bash

SOURCE_DIR=${1%/}
shift
REC_DATE=${SRC_DIR##*/}
SRC_DIR=${SRC_DIR%/*}
BASE_DIR=${SRC_DIR%/*}
DIR_NAME=${SRC_DIR##*/}
CUTTING_DIR=${BASE_DIR}/%${DIR_NAME}
[  -d "$CUTTING_DIR" ] && mv $CUTTING_DIR $CUTTING_DIR.org
[  -e "${SOURCE_DIR}/marks" ] && mv "${SOURCE_DIR}/marks" "${SOURCE_DIR}/marks.org"

while [ "$1" != "" ] ; do
    marks=$1
    target_dir=$2
    shift 2
    cp -f $marks "${SOURCE_DIR}/marks"
    [ -e "$CUTTING_DIR" ] && rm $CUTTING_DIR
    ln -s $target_dir $CUTTING_DIR
    mkdir $CUTTING_DIR
    vdr --edit=${SOURCE_DIR}
done
