    DaVinci Resolve Keyboard

    For speeding up the color grading process, there is the necessity of having a control surface.
    I've built one of them

    Features
    Potentially it replicates the functions of:
    - 2 ON/OFF Switch
    - 30 Knobs
    - 3 Trackballs
    - 3 Wheels
    - 100+ Keys

    That's possible remapping a keyboard with a complex series of scripts and using it with a pointing device.

    Here is a fast made video showing some functions... I'll show you everything else with a better made video ;)

    Compatibility
    Obviusly you can use almost every keyboard and a mouse, a trackpad or a trackball that you own.
    The scripting was done using the software Controllermate (more infos here: OrderedBytes).
    Supported platforms:
    - Mac OS X
    Screen resolutions:
    - 2560x1600
    - 2560x1440
    - 1920x1200
    - 1920x1080
    - 1680x1050
    Keyboards:
    - All the most popular. Keyboards that use specific drivers (Ex: Apple Keyboard) are excluded.
    Pointing devices:
    - All.

    How much does it cost
    The possible users are distribuited all over the world and I choose that selling only the script by the web avoiding every kind of pack shipment is the better thing to do, garanting to you the maximum flexibility.
    In this way you could also use your own devices.
    For less then 95$ (69€) you'll receive by email the scripts and the PDF/PSD (editable) to print and paste on your keys.
    It's an awesome price considering the increment of productivity that you'll gain.

    Availability
    Now, clink on the link below ;)
    Post every question that you have, I'll be happy to reply to everyone.

    I don't know if it's against the forum's rules to post this kind of thread, let me know if I'm wrong and I'll delete it.

    I asked to Controllermate developers to provide a porting of their amazing application to Windows, then the porting of the script will be instantaneous.
    I searched for an equivalent app for Windows but I didn't found it... If you know something, please advice, I'll make the possible to port it!
    I'm switching too to Windows and I need to continue to work with this keyboard! =)

    For example:
    Click on the gamma key, and move your finger on the trackpad/trackball or move your mouse in the direction that you want. It updates the image realtime to the color that you choose. For switch to highlights or shadow, release the gamma key, press the lift key and move your hand.
    For the knobs the movement is just left-right (decrease-increase the value).

    Yes, Yesterday I setup my PayPal account and prepared the link for all the version:
    Until yesterday there was a script for each monitor resolution, a couple of hours ago I've built a workaround so every resolution will be available with the same script.
    I've used the cheapest keyboard that I found at the computer shop, it was 15€, less then 20$.
    My today scripting session allows you to made in a way that if your keyboard layout is really different from mine (but i don't think) you could rearrange the blocks to match it.
