Logitech G13 Keyboard for Video Editing

Here is a new gizmo that you may want to check out if you like programming keyboards and value the opinion of a particular ACE editor. The Logitech G13 keyboard is the gizmo and the editor’s name is Alan Bell.

Now I use a Wacom tablet when I am editing and so does Alan. However, there is one reason I might stay away from this combination of using the Logitech G13 along with my Wacom tablet. It is made by Logitech, and my experience with Logitech is that although they have some very slick-looking designs with their keyboards, they have never been reliable enough for me to use from day-to-day. Keys would end up not working. Although the concept is intriguing, I will wait to see if another manufacturer thinks that this type of controller is worth producing and maybe then take a chance. Anything that can save time is valuable and I have to hand it to Logitech for their ability to create so many innovative products. Check out the link and see what you think.

to using keyboard shortcuts as often as possible and finds it a joy to memorise or devise new ones, I snapped up a G13 to give it a go myself.

In this post I thought I’d put together a fairly comprehensive ‘quick-start’ guide to anyone looking to use a G13 in their post production workflow. It really is a very versatile device and would speed up any creative working in After Effects, Premiere Pro CC, FCPX, DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer etc. (or all of them!) There really are no limits to what you could use the G13 for, with a bit of imagination. — Read more: http://jonnyelwyn.co.uk/film-video-editing-tools-for-editors/video-editing-with-logitech-g-13-keyboard/
