Is Loupedeck supported by Capture One?

    It would be great if you cold somehow work with the makers of Loupedeck to help achieve a more fluid interaction between them and Capture One Pro.  

    Currently it's very underwhelming compared to the Loupedeck / LightRoom compatibility which is fantastic.  I really would like to make Capture one my primary raw processor but will only be able to do this if it supports the tools I need to speed up my workflow.

    Many thanks!

    Hi,

    I also use a Loupedeck CT and am disappointed by the lack of possible integration currently.

    It is perfectly possible to set up controls where there are available keyboard shortcuts, but sadly, for some areas of Capture One , e.g. Colour Selector and Black and White controls, no keyboard shortcuts exist.

    I have, as suggested above, approached Loupedeck support.  They informed me that they do not currently have access to the Capture One API (Application Programming Interface), so only keyboard shortcut integration is possible.  This seems strange as Capture One was offered as a bundle option with Loupedeck when I bought it.

    I am a professional photographer and I love Capture One.  I edit up to 1000 images on some days.  I would like to make Capture One my main editing go-to and switch from Lightroom.  However, I will not be prepared to invest in it if it doesn't have the Loupedeck functionality that makes Lightroom so efficient for my work flow.

    Please could Capture One work with Loupedeck to resolve this issue and also widen the scope of keyboard shortcuts to make customisation of the interface more complete?

    Thanks,

    Ian Threlkeld

    Hi Capture One,

    I've decided to switch from Lightroom Classic to Capture One because of the quality and performance of the app compared to Lightroom based on my research. I've been using Adobe products for 16 years but since the subscription model started, the quality and performance of the apps have been going down. So, I bought Capture One Pro 20 yesterday, there's no going back.

    Here's the thing, there are a lot of people like me that have been thinking about leaving Adobe subscription model for better alternative apps that perform better. Having Capture One fully integrated with LoupeDeck is a strong selling point to them.

    I'm in branding and advertising not an app developer, and I don't know what it takes to make Caption One works well with LoupeDeck but I know that if you take advantage of this opportunity, we'll see more people switching to Capture One.

    Me too!

    Want to quit paying Adobe, but am heavily entrenched with Lightroom and Photoshop BUT rely on Loupedeck+ for the brilliant interface

    I've downloaded the freebie version of C1 for Nikon and I like what I see

    You'll get me Capture One the day you can make the program work properly with Loupedeck+

    @WPNL:

    The Controller One project looks awesome - but in what respects do you feel this has any advantages over Loupedeck+?

    It seems like a lot of work to achieve the same objective?

    And the material cost works out to be about the same as the Loupedeck+:

     

    Bome MIDI Translator Pro € 59,- (incl. VAT)

    + Arturia Beatstep: € 90,- (incl. VAT)

    = €149 

    Loupedeck+ = 239 €

    Difference = € -90 in Arturia's/Bome's favour

    So, a saving of €90 initially, but spending hours setting things up after purchase - is it really worth it?

    Is the quality of the hardware THAT superior, or the customization options really worth it?

    Can you do stuff with the Controller One set-up that Loupedeck can't?

    Not trolling here, just want to get a clear picture of my options and pros/cons before going either way, so would appreciate if you could share some more real-world experience and why it might be worth it going for a MIDI controller instead of the Loupedeck.

    Thanks!

    @mbrakes

    You are absolutely right for asking that question and I agree with you along the lines.
    I rolled into this project step by step because I'm interested in technical aspects and I had a spare MIDI controller at the time I was looking for possibilities.

    (I also use this controller if I'm having a mad night and choose to make some noise with FruityLoops ;-) ) 

    In my opinion Loupedeck feels like a toy compared to the Beatstep.

    I understand both alternatives suffer from lag due to not having access to a solid API.

    I am not sure what features are working on only one them.

    To be honest I would not advise one of them against the other, I guess it depends on how much time you are willing to spend to get things working.

    :-)
