Using the BCR2000 with LrControl

LrControl supports the BCR2000 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 BCR2000 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.


The function of the encoders can be changed using layers. Each layer defines the meaning of the bottom three rows of encoders.

The LrControl layers are selected using the bottom row of buttons. 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 encoders control the tool parameters. Start with selecting the tool and click in the image to position it. LrControl will automatically detect tool mode and adjust the encoders.

Function Details

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