Hi Bome, i just saw about your Midi Translator Pro Software and would like to use it with my BCF2000 on Windows 10 with Adobe Premiere and After Effects ´19

What i would really like to have is that i can do Color Grading using the faders In/Out.
So that i can not only use it for sound but actually that it somehow gets that a aplication window has faders and they are conected to the BCF.

Is that somehow possible with your software?

Best,
Patrick

Hi Steve,
i see, thats also a possibility, but not a clean one. I know that its somehow working, there some interfaces popping out now that i think use generally a midi device, a software like yours and maybe a script to access the software faders directly. I think this would be also interesting for your software sales cause there are a lot of videomakers in need of something like that. If you like, we can have a look together over it over skype or something. Might be even possible to find someone that knows how to write the plugins for premiere. Just have a look if that would be something that is easy or hard to implement in Midi translator pro. As i think you can make a lot of software sales through that.

best,
Patrick

Thanks for your suggestions, Patrick, I will pass them along to the company. I’m not the developer of this software but a customer and also on staff to help people with their questions.

Yes, as I understand, this would be possible. We have another user that is controlling Lumetri color effects with faders. Not on a BCF2000, however but you should be able to modify the inputs to the project file used for your BCF2000.  Keep in mind that this project file converts MIDI  notes to absolute mouse button locations and clicks on the screen, so it would be also important that your Premier Window is always set up at the same location on the screen every time you run it.  The project converts MIDI knob/fader movements to mouse movements and keystrokes. The keystrokes should be hotkeys recognized by Premier.

Here is a link to the entry.

Of course the incoming MIDI messages need to be adjusted to the messages that your BCF2000 is sending.

 

Notes also that for audio, Premier handles Mackie MIDI natively so you may need to disable Mackie if your BCF2000 sends Mackie. Or set up a shift layer within MT Pro to enable and disable Mackie MIDI signals (or redirect them) to other output messages if you don’t want your faders to move at a given time.
