Contour Updates Shuttle Software

2.0.2 release includes enhancements for FCP and FCE By Dave Nagel
Contour Design has released an update to the software driver for its shuttle/jog multimedia controllers--the ShuttlePro, ShuttlePro V.2 and ShuttleXpress. The new 2.0.2 software offers enhancements for Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express. It's available now for Mac OS X.

Contour's shuttle/jog driver software includes the ability to generate macros that are executable through a single button click on any of the company's shuttle/jog devices. The macro functionality includes a new software component called Key Composer, which allows users to customize groups of key combinations, which can execute simultaneously or sequentially. With sequential operation, multiple key combinations can be executed with a single button--such as "find," "find next," "replace and find" etc. The macros can be used to automate repetitive tasks, group commands to a single button or control a VTR or camcorder, among other possibilities. The new 2.0.2 version adds enhancements for working with Apple's FInal Cut Pro and Final Cut Express, in particular in the areas of Log & Capture and Timeline.


Contour's Shuttle software is available now free for users of the ShuttlePro, ShuttlePro V.2 and ShuttleXpress multimedia controllers. It supports Mac OS X. For more information, visit http://www.contourdesign.com.
