Compact Flash or SD?

With the 2 slots on my D800E I was thinking of using the CF as primary and the SD as overflow.

BUT what I REALLY want to do is use the CF for stills and the SD for video, just to keep them seperate.

So, is there any quick way to switch between them or alturnatively if I take out the CF when I want to do video will it then record to the SD or do I have to have a card in the CF slot?
