    Stanly : Regarding the finger slide across (say colour temp).

    One issue I hit was how do you both allow a huge Kelvin range and the ability to fine tune down to a single Kelvin?

    The solution that I implement was to have a WYSIWYG when your finger is on the Scale itself - but if the user is 1 inch higher - then moving left and right only contributes a Fraction of the amount.

    When this means is that the Y axis can be used to change the strength of the the adjustment for horizontal controls.

    Make sense?

    PS Magnification : My Guess is that the video circuits stabilise and then use DMA (direct memory access) to splat the sensor buffer memory into the memory use for Red Display.

    If RED only have on hardware video path for DMA - they might have to the same thing that MagicLantern initially used which was to leave the DMA doing the lions share of the copy (of the existing full screen), and then push the CPU to the limit for the magnified image. For this not to impact UI latency .... and if this was feasible - a lower refresh rate of the magnified image would still be awesome to have.

    Haha ... this is a very old video of first ML version with focus assist :

    To Robert's point of being able to navigate with the physical buttons, in the example below the Resolutions are navigable by the Left-Right and Up-Down physical buttons.You can also just "touch" the arrows to go to the screen you want with the specific resolution you wanted as well.

    Thanks Rand. Looks good. The last one with a single row is how I imagine a non-touch interface would look. But of course that would slow down and limit touch operation. I guess that's why Red has used a slider, where the selection is centred - it allows one to scroll through linearly with the UP/DOWN buttons and also tap nearby settings or swipe for larger changes.

    Robert,

    I considered to just keep one centralized row of resolutions and just swipe with touch or left and right with the physical buttons. However, I just thought of all the wasted space of only 4 selectable items of 5 menus screens, in this case, or 2 menus of 8 selectable items plus one menu with 4 selectable items for a total of 3 menu screens.

    Great! Works perfectly for some video players, such as Infuse on iOS!

    Another thing with slide – on iOS when you fine-tune something and lift off your finger iOS thinks there was a value change. This is the reason behind making arrows for larger value changes and 1 unit increments for substantial swipe input. But with that Y axis sensitivity you can really get away with adjusting everything by swipe if that's your preference!

    I would have the swipe initiation area to be the value with surrounding oval, with Y to have minimum sensitivity on top of the adjustment and increase when you move your finger lower (so you don't block the view). Even if you don't discover this Y-sensitivity feature – everything works fine, and if you do ... it's even better!

    Whoa! Those guys did a lot of QoL improvements :D that means it's probably possible!

    Exactly.

    Parameters on RED can one (or all) of:
    +) A list of values
    +) A formula - with minimum incremental value (which is usually very small)
    +) A value that the user can type in.

    Parameters can also be :
    +) Change instantly (like Fan Speed, Colour temp)
    +) Changes that Need to wait for the Camera to reconfigure (like frame rate)

    INKontrol : Allows cycling between (Default) LIST -> EDIT -> Whole Screen SWIPE (more real estate = easier to control the target value).

    Canon were initially 'slightly' unhappy with the team ... but ultimately incorporated some of the mods in hardware.

    Resolution with ruler and sliding indicator to make a selection.
