Loupedeck and Palette Gear are two completely different types of consoles that essentially aims to do one thing: help you edit a little faster in Adobe Lightroom. That’s a general statement, but if you’re here, you probably have a bit of an idea about the two devices. I have both and I’ve spent a few weeks with each to see which will find a more permanent place on my desk, so let’s get to it. First, a quick overview about each device.
Color plays an enormous part in how a movie makes us feel (or a photo for that matter). In fact, when you look back at a movie, one of the most prominent memories will be how it was colored. Maybe not on a conscious level, but the color palate ultimately gives a movie its feel.
Cinema Palettes breaks the color palate down from some poplar movies. This can serve as a great reference tool when you are seeking inspiration or wanting to set the look for a clip of your own.
Of course, the fact that a palette was a good fit for a moody or a happy film does not mean that it will be a great fit for YOUR moody or happy film, but it can help you gain insights on the connection between color and mood.
Photo editing used to be a truly interactive, albeit laborious, experience in the days of the darkroom. Now, most everything is done through mouse clicks, keystrokes, and digital tablets.
Palette aims to change that with their fully customizable modular array of buttons, sliders, and knobs. This exciting new piece of hardware, which seamlessly integrates with Adobe software such as Photoshop and Lightroom, literally puts the editing controls into your hands and snaps together in whatever configuration best suits your workflow.
