I like Hitfilm Express and I own an (older) Jog Shuttle Pro. They worked fine on my previous setup, so why not bring them over into this new Windows 11 era? Right...
... is no more. The (new) owners have decided on a new business model (definitely worse for the users, but okay) with monthly subscriptions, and it ain't cheap.
Hitfilm Express itself was free, but a number of add-ons were cheap in a Humble Bundle. At the time I grabbed the bundle (which was merely a set of keys), downloaded the program, and had a ball. I actually bought a few extra options to turn an already nice package into a full fledged editor.
The license is perpetual, so it should be able to keep using it, right? That is, if I can find it anywhere...
Get your user name, password, log in, and download -- wait. You can't download it anymore. It's not even mentioned on Hitfilm's website anywhere. The only download link I had was in an old confirmation email, dating back to the time I installed it for the first time. Fortunately, that link still worked...
So, grab the copy of Hitfilm Express you're still entitled to, before Hitfilm / FXHome takes that one down as well...
Contour (Hercules) Jog Shuttle Pro v1
Mine is a rebranded Contour Shuttle Pro, which was bundled with a video capture card and what I think was MediaStudio Pro 6.5VE or something similar. It gathered dust for quite some time (I found video editing rather unsatisfying on the hardware of the time. Remember, this is back in 2003, so nearly twenty years ago!
(I found an old review here: ExtremeTech)
And yeah, that's the Shuttle Pro v1, just with an additional Hercules logo.
Now, Contour -- for some reason -- seems to dislike their v1 product. I strongly suspect it's technically identical to v2, except for the additional buttons. The v2 also has removable caps on some of the buttons that the v1 doesn't.
What is interesting is that they sold two models for a while, one with and one without the additional buttons, both claiming to be version 2. From a manual:
Button 1 - I - set in-pointButton 2 - Shift + I - jump to in-pointButton 3 - Shift + O - jump to out-pointButton 4 - O - set output
Button 5 - Home - jump to startButton 6 - PgUp - previous edit pointButton 7 - Space - playButton 8 - PgDn - next edit pointButton 9 - End - jump to end
