Support for Loupedeck coming?

Recommended Posts

 Sorry if this has been asked before about but after seeing that now Loupedeck supports Final Cut Pro X I was wondering if affinity photo will be next? 

I really hope so

Hi musicfed,

I'm not aware of any current plans to support Loupedeck and i believe we would need some form of API for them to access, so it may be awhile before we could look at supporting these kind of devices.

I'm interested in a device like this as well, perhaps something smaller than Loupedeck. All I really need are a couple of rotary encoders and buttons - something like this (still not shipping): 

It would be nice if it were pre-configured for Affinity products, but if the device is configurable it may be possible to use it without Affinity intervention. 

An alternative may be to use a 3rd party tool like AutoIt to do the integration. I haven't looked into this - do you think that's feasible (necessary technical expertise aside)?

All the Loupedeck profile does is save you the trouble/time of associating the varies controls with the application's functions. You are capable of setting up the Loupedeck CT to work with all or any of Affinity's functions. I just did it for Fast Raw Viewer, it takes a bit of time but it's not hard.

The profiles are nice, as are the fancy Icons, but not needed.

As for size, the CT is  only 14.5 x 15.5 cm - if it was any smaller it would be too cramped IMHO.

I'm surprised Loupedeck have omitted Affinity in their custom profiles
