kye Posted August 28, 2020 Share Posted August 28, 2020 I've gone down a rabbit hole with hardware controllers, and while I am really appreciating my Beatstep Davinci Resolve Edition for colour grading, it's not the tool for video editing. The tool for video editing in Resolve is the Davinci Resolve Keyboard, but I can't justify the $1000 price tag, and one of the reviews I read said that it's only worth the money over a normal keyboard if you use the extra buttons that it has on the sides. Ultimately, the review said, you'll have more keyboard shortcuts than you will have keys on the keyboard, so the extra physical buttons are needed so that you're not constantly having to do Command - Shift - Something to get at your shortcuts. This lead me to the idea of just buying more keys and then programming them to say Command - Shift - Something when I press a key. That lead me to this article - https://www.instructables.com/id/Making-a-powerful-programmable-keypad-for-less-tha/ It talks about using one of these: along with this software to program it: http://www.hidmacros.eu/ This would mean that any function of any software that can have a keyboard shortcut attached to it can be assigned onto one of these and then you can have your own dedicated controller. Has anyone done this? These keypads are $10 from amazon and the software is free. I think it's worth doing just to try it out. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
