The default profile that you get is a recommendation how to use Loupedeck with Adobe Premiere Pro. It may not be 100% fitting for your personal needs and workflow, but don’t worry: it's possible to customize Loupedeck freely to your liking.
We are aware that people have different needs, workflows and projects – so do feel free to modify things! Having what matters to you where it matters and memorizing it will speed up your workflow.
Loupedeck is not designed to eliminate all mouse usage. Moreover, with some functions, Loupedeck works best when it gets a little help from your mouse (e.g., selecting a clip with the mouse and then working with the clip with Loupedeck). With some actions, Loupedeck nicely takes the workload off the mouse, though – e.g., navigating through the timeline, moving clips, adjusting color, tuning transitions etc.
You might think that some obvious and much-needed actions are missing from the default profile. However, by hovering over buttons in the Setup window (or just by trying out the device), you will notice a few more actions.
