Tangent element-Mf overview

  • 1Description

The Tangent Devices Element Mf Panel is the "Multifunction" panel of a set of four Element panels that replace a keyboard and mouse in operating select functions of supporting software, such as of supporting color-grading software. The panels can be used to achieve precise results quicker and with more technical gratification than possible with a keyboard and mouse. The list of supporting software is a growing one and includes such applications as DaVinci Resolve, SCRATCH, On-Set Dailies, Mistika, and YoYo.

The controls of the panels can be programmed and reprogrammed to operate different functions. The manufacturers of supporting software designate the functions that each panel and its controls can operate, and the manufacturers make available the details of their designations in either the respective software manuals or by phone or email upon contact, depending on the manufacturer.

Upon a control's being programmed, its functionality gets labeled on the display screen of its panel. When reprogrammed, its functionality gets re-labeled. The display screens have white OLED bulbs and show crisp, high-contrast, high-resolution easy-to-read characters.

The Mf panel has two display screens and twelve programmable buttons. It has one programmable trackerball and one programmable ring atop the ball. It has separate reset buttons for the ball and the ring, two buttons to program functions like ALT and Shift into, and standard transport buttons such as "play" and "stop". The trackerball and ring work by optical laser pickup for high-precision and extended life. The trackerballs can be removed for cleaning, and they can be reinstalled quite easily.

The different panels can be used individually or all together in a set. More than one of each type can be incorporated into a set, and a widely-functional control system can thus be put together. The panels are made from precision laser-cut solid aluminum. They neatly attach to each other's sides by magnet, and they take up a desk footprint of only 7.9 inches deep. They are USB-powered and connect to a computer each by a single USB cable via plug-and-play functionality, without need for drivers to be installed. The panels can also optionally be used with Tangent's HUB service, which allows the layouts of the panels' controls to be customized. (Supporting software would have to also support HUB API.)

    Tangent element-Mf reviews

    Element Mf Panel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally, a Control Panel for Capture One!! This was used to replace the Palette Gear Pro set. While the Palette worked really well for Lightroom, It is very limited in C1, my main editing software. So off to eBay it went. At first glance, this seems to be an expensive setup, but that is relative. Upon further investigation, I found that the Elements panels are only a bit higher when one compares the number of controls you get. Whats more these controls have a smaller footprint (compared to Palette). The controls are not mapped out keyboard shortcuts, but rather integrated with C1. Of course you can map out shortcuts for other apps like Mail, as I have done. Adjusting has always been butter smooth in C1, but these controls bring it to a whole new level. Editing has now become easier, faster, more fluid, and just plain fun! The unit seems well made. It has a nice heft and sits solidly on my desktop. The MF has buttons and a trackball / adjustment wheel combo. The controls feel solid and very responsive. I first bought the KB panel and found I needed a bit more control, so I got the MF as well. I'm looking hard at the Ripple for color grading in C1.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speeding up my workflow I bought this panel in conjunction with the Bt panel and used Tangent Mapper to map them for animation in Maya and for editing in FCPX as well as coloring in DaVinci Resolve and I'm able to work as fast as I can push the buttons now! It's amazing what a control surface will do for your workflow, I only wish I had done it sooner!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The future of cinema is in your hands You can correct at a professional level at your house. Pricey but worth every penny

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Resolve I use this panel constantly when grading because all the frame store and keyframing controls are at my fingertips, as are add nodes and disable/enable nodes. I don't care for the jog control on this and I don't use it much for playback control but for everything else its a huge time saver for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from no more click and drag Makes for a major speed increase, in productivity. Build quality is pretty good, rubberized ring provides solid grip, and trackballs have good weight to them. I use it with Davinci Resolve Lite v10
