I did a search on the Tangent website in their applications search for "Photoshop" and got nothing. I suspect this means I can't use this surface for color correcting in Photoshop?
Asked by: Greg
Unfortunately, the Tangent 2 does not support Photoshop.

Magix Vegas Pro not supported?

Magix Vegas Pro not supported?
Asked by: Jiawei
At this time Tangent does not have support for Vegas Pro listed as an option. However you are able to custom map the controls on their units to other softwares. Even if a software is not listed as supported, you still may be able to set this up to work with it.

Can this be set up to function differently based on the program currently in use? (ie. grading in resolve and editing photos in Lightroom?)
Asked by: Louis
The functionality of the panel is defined by the application which it is controlling. So, yes, the controls will do different things for each application. Please note that this does mean that the application must support the panel or you will need to map keyboard shortcuts to provide all functions yourself. See here for a list of applications which offer direct support: www.tangentwave.co.uk/applications/

Can the Wave 2 have one rotary knob that works ...

Can the Wave 2 have one rotary knob that works with the "active/focused" Effect/FX in Adobe Pr so that as I switch from FX to FX that single Wave 2 rotary/knob will adjust the values on the currently selected FX?
Asked by: Rob
This may soon be possible depending on what you mean by "currently selected". Most effects in Premiere have several parameters so it may be difficult for the system to determine which parameter you intend the knob to adjust. It would be good to know more about your requirement so that we can advise properly. I'd suggest that you email [email protected] so we can have a more in-depth discussion of forthcoming features such as this.

question

Is it possible to ad node and secondary correction inTangent Wave2 Panel ?
Asked by: varaprasad r.
It is. The up and down buttons on the upper right let you select what the buttons across the top do. There is a node group and a secondary group. I'd highly recommend downloading the manual from the Tangent page. They make a version specific to the major applications they support including Resolve.
