The CommandPost application for macOS bridges control surfaces with software that doesn't support them natively, such as Apple's Final Cut Pro and Adobe's After Effects.

Powered by Lua (the same scripting language used by Blackmagic Fusion, Adobe Lightroom, and in Apple iOS), it's powerful and highly customizable. CommandPost runs natively on Apple Silicon and is fully compatible with Hammerspoon.

Key features:

  • Gives you full control over Final Cut Pro.
  • The ability to trigger individual effects, transitions, titles, and generators.
  • Precision control over the Final Cut Pro playhead.
  • It allows you to rotate, scale, position clips with dials.
  • Provides access to all Command Editor shortcuts and menubar items.
  • With Favorites, you can trigger snippets (ie. Lua Scripts that can be used for automation/scripting), user-created Plugins, and any actions that haven't been copied to Loupedeck, for example an action to prevent a Mac from going to sleep
