I bought a behringer BCF2000 for using it like a interface controller with Lightroom. I could't make it work. I wrote to Behringer support system and they told me that if Lightroom supports either one Mackie Control or HUI protocol, I would be able to use it with Lightroom. I tried to find something about these protocols in the Adobe support page and even in google, but I couldn't find anything. can anyone of you help me?
Why would you assume we have a clue what a 'behringer BCF2000' is or what 'Mackie Control or HUI protocol' means?
Ya - I could research it but I shouldn't have to.
Why would you assume this comment is in any way helpful? If you don’t know what those terms mean then it’s a pretty safe bet you’re not going to be able to help. 😉
You don't have to be so rude. I am not assuming anything. I tried to contact adobe support system and this forum was the only place available. That "Behringer" thing is an external midi controller and I wanted to use it in order to work easily. I just need someone expert in adobe to tell me if Mackie Control or HUI protocol are compatibles with lightroom. But thank you for be so emphatic
I think you are looking into quite a specialist or detailed area and I would be surprised if you got an answer from support or even from anyone here. I don't think Lightroom itself has any built-in interface with midi controllers, but its plugin architecture (look up the SDK) offers hardware control features. Over the years I have heard of various midi controllers being hooked up to Lightroom, and maybe you should take a look at their web pages and particularly at whatever specifications they provide. If they mention these protocols, there's your immediate answer, but it's only one step in getting your controller to work with Lightroom.
While I realize this is a year old, I found this plugin (that I haven't tried but want to as soon as I get a control surface). It seems to support quite a few different control surfaces, including the discontinued but still functional model you mentioned.
Great finding david65565889 !
Exactly what I was looking for.
Being also a sound engineer I am always using hardware controllers for driving all my music softwares : it's ten folds faster than doing everything by mouse.
I am amazed how little photographers or Lightroom users know little about this type of controllers that almost any computer musician have.
For the price of this plug-in plus a second hand Behringer BCR2000 you can have a great upgrade in your process.
