Tangent Hub with Warp Record - now in Beta

Recommended Posts

Tangent have added a great new feature to our Warp Engine which now allows you to simply record actions performed on the application’s GUI, and associate those recorded actions to a control on the panel. The control can be a button, knob, dial, trackerball or ring. Moving or pressing the control will trigger the playback of the recorded actions. This means that there’s no longer any need to code Warp Scripts by hand (although you can still do this if you prefer).

Actions that can be recorded are:

  • Mouse moves.
  • Mouse drags. Note only a single drag can be performed in a recording.
  • Mouse button clicks.
  • Mouse scrolls. This is useful if sliders accept a scroll input.
  • Keyboard keypresses.

Here's an example of how easy it is to map the offset colour wheel and its reset in Resolve:

The latest release of the Tangent Hub now has an updated Warp Engine with a record feature. So you no longer need to write scripts by hand. Warp Engine allows you to map any control, on any of your Tangent panels, to any application. This is done through assigning scripts to controls to emulate mouse clicks, drags, scrolls and keypresses.
Examples of typical use are:

  • To add and remap controls in applications that support Tangent panels but do not allow customisation of the map. For example, DaVinci Resolve. The fixed map is retained, but the user can jump between that and their own custom map*.
  • Adding controls previously unavailable through the Tangent Mapper in applications that already support Tangent panels through the Mapper. For example, Adobe Premier Pro.
  • To control applications that don’t support Tangent panels. For example, Avid Media Composer.

* Applies to Element, Ripple, and the Element-Vs app with Resolve. For Wave and Wave2 with Resolve you can only create your own custom map.

Both Windows and Mac operating systems are supported.

We’ve posted a tutorial to YouTube showing how simple it is to add extra controls to Resolve:
