    AMC with Artist or Tangent Wave 2?

    Folks:

    Thanks for the forum assists. My school is looking at picking up a color correction board and everyone here is all gung-ho for the Tangent Wave 2 - but I do not see that it (at least natively) interfaces with Avid Media Composer...? I had heard there might be a third-party plug-in that allows Avid to work with the Wave 2 - is this ture? Has anyohne used this and, if so, do you recommend it?

    I'm running MC 8.2 on a Dell XPS 8700 with Windows 7 Pro and 32 GB RAM (and an Nvidia Quadro K2200) . Basically I'm seeking advice for a >$1K color board that (1) works with Avid and (2) maybe doesn't require a physics degree to use. Or would you strongly advise Artist?

    Suggestions? Thanks, as always!

    Tangent has their own keyboard mapping software (Tangent Hub). This lets you map the knobs, buttons, and rollerballs to keystrokes (so you can take a knob and when you turn it one way it sends one set of keystrokes, but turn it the other way and it sends a different set of keystrokes). So you could map a knob to control the clip volume up and down.

    Dave:Thanks for the input. I Did speak with a rep from a third-party plug-in for the Wave 2 (Backlight) who said their free version let the Wave 2 through Avid VIEW color-corrected media but not manipulate it at all. They said that to do anything with the Wave 2 to actually alter the image I had to buy their $1K license (which then did give full control - but beyond my means).

    It seems I'll be going with the Avid Artist Panel...
