I recently came into posession of the "Lightworks Shuttle Pro" bundled with an outright license.

This console is shown like this on the LWKS.com website, the product page here: www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_shop&view=shop&Itemid=205

Here are two more examples from the tutorial video:

From all these I feel entitled to assume the buttons will have factory inscribed labels for the provided factory default console configuration.

===========================================================
This is what I received:

I do understand that this console is highly configurable. A quick glance at the console software is more then enough.
I do understand that each button (upper rows at least) bundle 4 functions depending on modifiers used.

I see it is a "Lightworks" branded product. Good.
Seeing not only the product image, but also the tutorial showing real life use, it begs the question: where are the button labels?

Inside the package I also received a cardboard with button labels and precut button outlines.

If this were an adhesive paper, if there was also a diagram showing the default label arrangement, if there was any kind of instruction regarding labels included then this topic would not have existed.

However, despite all my attempts, even with fine tweezers, i was unable to separate any adhesive backing. As far as I can tell, this is just plain paper, slightly thicker, probably like 150g/m2, no adhesive.

What am I supposed to do with it?
- go to the store and get some glue? What kind of glue? Or just try different glues until one sticks well enough?
Button surface is smooth and soft plastic. I doubt many glues would stick and those that would usually are chemically very aggressive and damage surroundings.

- use it as a template and hand draw labels with a marker? They would dissapear very quickly.
Button surface is smooth and soft plastic. Permanent marker does not adhere well.
- use double sided adhesive tape?
Might work for a while, but will take a lot of work cutting it and the buttons will at least double in height.

==============================================
What do I do with my console?

Thank you.

Just guessing, but there must be a way to pop off clear plastic covers of the buttons and insert the icons from the cardboard sheet then reinsert the plastic covers. Those icons are likely perforated and will pop out of the cardboard sheet.

Again, just guessing. Good luck.

Bear in mind that each button has 4 layers of functions in the Lightworks settings. You can see them here:

www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=25&id=184649&Itemid=81#184657

You would have to put in the labels that are important to you. since each label only covers one function.

Perfect guess, that's the ways it is.

FWIW,

On a device with 9 buttons to be labeled, but potentially 6 modifyers for each, labeling buttons makes not much sense, in my view. What I did: I've removed two of the plastic covers (F2 and F7), so my finger tips can feel where they are and the rest is muscle memory gained from some practice. The major advantage is that I can keep my eyes on the screen when editing and away from the Shuttle, that's simply faster.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

You can use a small Flathead screwdriver to pop off the covers on the top 9 buttons. If you feel along the straight side of a button you should feel a small Groove along its base.
I work in Manhattan, USA, but at night I cross the waters to sleep in Brooklyn, USA.

Also, post production is not an afterthought!

@arniepix: thank you for the tip.
Indeed, after some fiddling with a pair of tweezers, I got some clear plastic covers off the buttons.
Nice!

It would be greately appreaciated if this were mentioned somewhere in the product description at least.

========================

Here is a scan of the button labels, as included in the box.
Print it "Actual size".
Though you might want to reduce it about 5%. I had to cut off about 1mm from the short side of each label to fit them into the button cap.


I am attaching this here with the hope that people may find it useful to replace their labels and/or are missing some.

Use this IMAGE as a reference for the default layout, at least according to my initial research.

Thank you.
