Control your colour grading software from your iPad with the element-Vs app.
- Ideal for on-set grading.
- Ideal as a portable grading panel.
- Ideal for training.
- Ideal for expanding your real Element panels.
The element-Vs is a virtual version of the four panels that make up the Element control panel series by Tangent Wave Ltd.
Every panel is presented in exactly the same layout as the real Element panels.
All the controls are mapped on the element-Vs in exactly the same way as the real Element panels. What the controls do depends on the grading software you are using the panel with. You should refer to the control mappings for the Element panels provided by your software manufacturer.
The element-Vs is fully multi-touch, so you can use different controls simultaneously.
You do not need to own the real Element panels in order to use the element-Vs.
You can use the element-Vs at the same time as your real Element panels. When you do this the controls will reflect any changes and information that happen to either real or virtual panels.
If you do not own all the Element panels you can use the element-Vs to provide virtual versions of the panels you do not own.
Communication with your grading software is via WiFi.
NOTE: you will need to download and install the Tangent Hub software on your computer in order for your grading software to talk to the element-Vs app.
Please read the manual which is available to download on our website - see the element-Vs product page.
Improved support for newer iPad models.

Needs some work but awesome app
I bought this app because I use a Blackmagic Mini panel at work that I absolutely love but I can’t justify the $3,000 cost to buy my own to have at home for my personal projects.
The setup for this app was frustrating because they don’t have great instructions, but I eventually figured it out. My biggest gripe with this app is that it needs to be updated for new iPads to remove the black bars on the sides. Also, the Kb page has to be used with the Bt page, which means you end up swiping between the pages a lot and it is kind of clunky.
I have a $20 drawing stand for my iPad and I definitely recommend picking up one if you use this app a lot since it puts your iPad at a better angle to use this app on a desk.
This is a really solid app to turn your iPad into a color panel for $10 and I like it. I haven’t purchased a Tangent Ripple panel yet but this app is supposed to work with it to extend its functionality which sounds awesome.
Great affordable alternative
I purchased this for $7.99 as opposed to the original $79.99 price point. At the lower price, I think it’s a steal for anyone who wants something a bit more precise then a mouse for color grading. Otherwise I do wish you could adjustment the sensitivity of the virtual dials/trackpad. Setting up did require some reading/troubleshooting but it’s been working fine ever since.
Love this app, but...
Needs to be updated. Will stop working with updated iPad OS.
