Using the BCF2000 with LrControl

LrControl supports the BCF2000 with the device default settings. So after you have installed LrControl, you can just take it out of the box, plug it in and it will work with LrControl. Use PRESET 1.

If PRESET 1 is not in factory settings, you can send the preset data to your BCF2000 from the LrControl plug-in. You can then store it in any preset you like. Find the menu in Lightroom-> Help-> Plug-in Extras-> Controller Setup.

Layers

The function of the faders can be changed using layers. Each layer defines the meaning of each fader.

The LrControl layers are selected using the bottom row of buttons, just above the faders.. The button corresponding to the selected layer will light up.

Encoder Groups

The encoder groups switch the function of the encoders, so they act like a kind of layer just for the encoders.

Tool Mode

When you use the Graduated Filter tool, the Radial Filter tool or the Adjustment Brush, the faders control the tool parameters. Start with selecting the tool and click in the image to position it. Then use the Sync button F1 on the BCF2000, to adjust the sliders to the correct position. Now you can control the tool parameters with the faders. When you are done with the tool, press the Sync button F1 again.

Function Details

Most functions are tied directly to a Lightroom parameter or function. But some have a function specific for the LrControl plug-in.
