Using Our BCF2000 Presets With Paddy

UPDATE: Our settings files have been expanded considerably and now have their own dedicated page. Visit our BCF2000 page for instructions and the settings files. The below blog entry is now essentially obselete.

In a previous blog entry I wrote about how to get a BCF2000 working with Paddy and Lightroom. The post went into detail on how to manually configure each of the sliders, knobs, and buttons to match your preferred editing methods in Lightroom.

But what if you don’t have the time or the patience to do all that configuring? Well, good news! We’ve posted the configuration files we currently use so you can hit the ground running without having to map all the controls yourself.

To use the presets do the following:

  1. Follow the Prerequisites and Part 1: Install Stuff steps from our prior blog entry.
  2. Download our package of presets and extract the files into the same folder as the Paddy executable.
  3. Load the .syx preset from the downloaded preset package using the instructions in Part 2 of the prior blog entry.
  4. Run Paddy, right click on the system tray icon, and select Preferences > Basic Setup.
  5. Click Load other and select the BCF2000.psf file you extracted in step 2.

And voila! Your BCF2000 will now be mapped as follows (click to view larger version):
