Re: What's the best 3rd party panel for Resolve under $4000

I've got the JL Cooper Eclipse - and I love it. I haven't used either of the other panels (tested the Resolve panel at a demo - and it's no doubt on the wish list!) but what I can say, compared to videos I've seen, using the Eclipse is more direct.

What I mean is, instead of clicking through endless menus (they probably have more options in total, what do I know) I can quickly click directly to the options I want.

There's six rotary knobs at the top left of the panel. These hold things like lift, gain, saturation, hue, controls for windows and HSL selection. Instead of clicking through all these presets, I can click directly from one set of controls to another.

There's also a set of rotary knobs to the top right. These are permanent and you can quickly select Versions, Scene, Still, Keyframe and Node.

You also have dedicated buttons for anything like each type of Window and window controls, highlight, track forward/backward, several types of nodes, save/play stills, save and load Memories, a button to bring up the Render panel++

I also like to have the numeric panel, so I can jump from one shot to another by typing numbers.

I'm not saying it's the best panel out there, but it was the one I wanted because of the features. I seldom use the mouse for anything except setting up the project.
