Neo4K / Neo3D (Mac) Support Tangent Wave CP300 Control Surface

The latest addition to CineForm’s continuing manipulation of of real-time Active Metadata comes in its support for the Tangent Wave CP300 control surface within Neo3D and Neo4K.  used together, CineForm First Light and the Tangent Wave CP300 literally take you behind the scenes, providing unprecedented access to real-time source manipulation.

(Initial support for the Tangent Wave panel is available on Mac, with Windows support coming in the next few weeks).

The power of the CineForm First Light / Tangent Wave CP300 combination lies in the ability to now leave CineForm First Light running in the background while your NonLinear Editing program (NLE) containing your First Light-controlled clips runs in the foreground. With this configuration, a vast majority of the manipulations you would normally make directly in the First Light interface can now be made using the Tangent Wave CP300 control surface, leaving everything in place and negating the need to switch back and forth between First Light and your NLE. This method of working saves time and hassle and allows you to more intuitively create a high quality final outcome.

Overview

There are three “virtual pages” of CineForm First Light controls currently available on the Tangent Wave CP300 control surface: “Color”, “3D”, and “Right Only”. These pages are accessible via the buttons labeled 1, 2 and 3 in the image below. Pressing one of these buttons will switch the panel to the page corresponding to that button. In the display screen on the control surface that appears immediately above these buttons, a title for each corresponding page is listed. There will be an indicator above the title of the page that is currently selected.

For each of the pages, the knobs, buttons, wheels and trackballs of the CP300 will perform a First Light function that is unique for that page. A brief description of the available pages and the functionality found on each of these pages is as follows (further details regarding each page will be given later in this instruction manual):
