  1. Hey people, I'm happy to announce the new refurbish program for Tangent's Element panels 🙂 ! For many users, the panel's surface has become worn down and/or sticky over the years. What we're doing here is to take the panel completely apart, remove the old soft coating and re-lacquer it with a deep black fine-structured powder coat, which should take a couple of ages to wear down again 🙂 . The look & feel is pretty similar to the Blackmagic panels, if you have come across those. Anyways - here is the link and below are a couple of pictures to check out. ==> ht
  2. Hi people, this tutorial is purely about the SCRATCH timeline (called 'CONstruct' back in the day). What many do not know: It has 3 dimensions 😉 . Once you understand how it works, it can be a huge time saver and organizational help. Cheers, Mazze
  3. Hey peoples, since the original foam inserts for the Element panels (see pictures below) are not being made anymore and have been unavailable for the past 2 years, I am considering to produce them again in a small production batch. Estimated price is 200€ (excl. VAT) + shipping for one set. The original foam inserts were priced at 175€ (excl. VAT). The Peli case itself is not included! I am about to make a prototype in the next couple of weeks, but to actually produce them, I'd need at least 5 pre-orders. If you're interested, drop me a line via PM, or
  4. Precisely 😉 . Well, yes - it does not look great. But then again... it didn't look particularly stellar before either .
  5. About the sticky surface, there's two things you can do: 1) Apply talkum powder (or baby powder - that has the advantage of it smelling nice 😉 ) https://www.angry-face.com/sticky-surfaces/ This however is only temporary, and you need to make sure no powder gets under the rings into the ball bearings. 2) Wash the soft coating down with Isopropyl alcohol and potentially relacquer the fascia. https://www.angry-face.com/avid-artist-panel-refurbish/ Cheers, Mazze
  6. The Euphonix and Avid panels are 100% identical, except for the label printed onto the device. They should work fine generally with any recent macOS/Windows version. What is unclear at this point is whether they will continue to work with Apple's M1 ARM processors. Avid has not yet updated the SDK for the ARtist Controllers. As not all controllers are EOL (like the ARtist Color is since december last year), I think there is an update to be expected, that will add M1 compatibility. Whether that SDK however then will still support EOL controllers, is yet to be seen.
  7. I can see these questions have already been answered on LGG. But just for completeness: Notes can be added via metadata stack inside ColorFX and the navigation can be switched to navigate between notes. For the panel mapping, go to ColorFX ==> Settings (F5) ==> General ==> Panel mapping. In there, each mapping pair has a scale and an acceleration value. Change those to adjust the sensitivity of any control. Cheers, Mazze
  8. Yep - it's called Reverse Assemble. You would add a frame reference to the tray and from there recall its grade. Cheers, Mazze
  9. I'm farily relaxed on the CPU-side of things. After all - how often do you swap out your CPUs? Normally that goes along with a change of socket for the newer CPU, requiring a new mainboard, likely requiring new memory - and while you're at it, throw in a new GPU as well. So with a CPU upgrade, you're most likely investing into a complete new system anyways. Not always, sure - but most of the time. As long as the MacPro would allow to swap GPUs, which have smaller life/upgrade circles, and retains it's PCIe-upgradeability, I think we're fine. Whether M1 in laptops might be sufficient f
  10. Drivers for Apple Silicon are beta - for a reason I guess. I'd expect them to run, but the devil with those things is always in the details, that show up not working just when you need them.
  11. Hi all, the Filmworkz DVO plugins finally went live and you can grab them from here: https://filmworkz.com/ SCRATCH of course is among the supported hosts and we've done a little tutorial on the various ways of adding a plugin inside SCRATCH - enjoy: Cheers, Mazze
  12. Hi friends, I've made a slight production change to the aluminium rings: They now get powder coated instead of anodized. Reason for that being that a few people desired a tad more grip on the rings. Going with a rubberized soft coating clearly wasn't an option. I also tried to roughen them up with a pretty coarse grained sandblasting process, which indeed added *a lot* of grip, but did not feel or look nice anymore. So I experimented with powder coating in deep black matte colors with a fine structure finish. Took some time to also find a company that is good at it and 'gets' it
  13. Hi friends, here's a tutorial that explains the newly added NDI® support in SCRATCH and Play Pro. If you've never heard of NDI before: It's basically like SDI, but without the cables. Pretty nice workflow-enabled to pipe video straight out of SCRATCH into e.g. SetStream.io, Zoom, Skype and literally any app that supports a webcam interface. And since we had Jeff Sousa show his setup for client attended remote color sessions using NDI in our last online session, check out that excerpt here as well: Che
  14. Hey everyone, if you are looking to get Assimilate SCRATCH, it's much discounted until the end of the year (about 30% off). If you are a Lowepost member, you can apply your Lowepost discount code on top of that and save even more. ==> https://store2.assimilateinc.com/product/scratch/ Cheers, Mazze
  15. Hey friends, last week we released SCRATCH and Play Pro 9.3. You can read the press release on the common news portals 🙂 . In a nutshell, we added native support for NDI, integrated a direct connection to Light Illusion's ColourSpace CMS, and a few other niceties like a CIE Plot scope, enhanced panel mapping capabilities and media defaults in the project settings. Here's a video showing why NDI is awesome and how to use it - kudos to Jeff Sousa! Full Release notes below 🙂 Assimilate Dailies / Formats Media defaults. You can now set defaul
