CUE Feature Suggestions
 
Update: Please see http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showpost...5&postcount=48

Post any suggestions you might have for CUE here.


Hey there,

so I've been messing around in CUE quite a bit now. It's definitely not as complicated as many made me believe it was. But it leaves much to desire, still.
Here are some suggestions that'd make creating profiles a lot easier and more powerful:
  • A layer system:
    Like in an Image or Video editor. That way you can put for example a group lighting on top of a single key lighting. The current rulesets apply to each layer individually. There are global groups which apply to all layers and every layer can have its own local groups. The layers themselves can be grouped together as well. Each layer can have its own reactive typing on top of the global one, the layer reactive typing would be prioritised.

  • Being able to initiate an action/different lighting once a lighting effect has finished:
    Like when you create a macro there is an option for a second action.
  • Also make that second action available for every action type and being able to start a lighting effect once an action is finished. That way you can chain an infinite amount of actions and lighting effects together.


  • Initiating a lighting effect on other keys with the press of a specific key or group of keys:
    This applies (unlike reactive typing) only to a single key or a selected group of keys, which initiates a group or single key lighting on a selected group/key.

  • Make the software window and column sizes adjustable:
    As it is right now it is very tedious to browse through lots of groups and many actions/lighting effects with longer names.

  • Creating profiles for a different keyboard/layout:
    Maybe a drop down menu from where you can choose the keyboard (K65/K70/K95) and the layout (US/DE/AZERTY). Unused or not available keys will be ignored when displaying on the actual keyboard. A built in converter would suffice as well.

  • Making lighting effects repeat on top of themselves:
    For example a ripple: Maybe a checkbox [X] Overlap on repeat, which makes the effect play to the end regardless of how long the effect is set to last. That way, the effect overlaps making smooth and constant multicolor waves and ripples much much easier.

  • Static group gradient effect:
    A static gradient on a group that doesn't cycle through the colors, instead spans the gradient colors across the selected group of keys.

If you have more suggestions feel free to post them here.

I'm not pushing corsair to implement this, just giving some ideas.

Regards,
Pp

Layer System should already be in CUE if i understand what you want correctly.

Thanks to thomja's request, I came up with another suggestion.

ScarredMecha 03-02-2015 11:43 AM

Here's another suggestion: We need to be able to have an action on a keypress without disabling its normal function, like being able to press Enter to change to another mode so someone can type in-game without having other keys' lighting effects activating.

Riekopo 03-02-2015 04:53 PM

I would like to be able to sync my RGB keyboard and RGB mouse to have the same lighting effects.

Audio EQ mod

The ability to load videos, photos, etc have have the software convert it.

Dumbed down interface to make new profiles easier.

Paul S 03-19-2015 12:24 AM

More FX and a VIDEO mode that shows on the keyboard whats on the screen, would make an awsome ambient effect whilst watching films in the dark.

I second this!
A stereo VU meter plugin would be great for media player yes

An SDK that lets programmers build color support into their apps. This is much more flexible than Lua and can be extended to support many languages. Razer just released their Chroma SDK which I tried out by porting my reverse engineered protocol based K70 RGB visualizer to. It was a cake walk to accomplish, as they provide a few .h header files and a few functions to set an RGB grid to the keyboard. Same idea as what we made for the K70 RGB with the reverse engineering method but a lot less work (at the expense of being rather slow to update and Windows-only). If Corsair does release an SDK it would be nice to be able to also interact with CUE (apply new effects as layers on top of already set effects, for instance). This is a big downside to Razer's SDK, it does not integrate with their software at all. I have a feeling game developers will be adding custom lighting to games soon for Razer users, but I doubt they will do the same with only a community-made reverse engineered SDK for Corsair. Wait around too long and Corsair could lose out on their upper hand in the RGB market.

Yes, yes, yes! I would love to see this. To add to that, I think being able to assign multiple actions/lighting effects to single key would be awesome. For example, pressing Y would cause a mode switch and then would start a macro after the mode switch along with a timer that is synced with a delay in the macro or something like that.

Powerpuncher 04-26-2015 01:31 PM

A move to the new CUE forum would be nice.

Edit: Thanks!

Corsair James 04-27-2015 01:15 AM

Keep up with the suggestions. I'll record all of them. I know from an initial read that some of these won't be possible without a large overhaul/hardware limitations. However, nothing is impossible in the future.

egret85 04-27-2015 01:53 AM

Make 16.8 mil color setting part of the mode lighting settings so that it can be changed as needed per light pattern to account for flickering in some lighting scenarios. This would be much better than it being a global setting like it is now.

e2e4 04-27-2015 01:09 PM

1. Profile Settings -> Link profile to program - must be multiple programs selection, not only one program.

2. Settings for state Lock keys (Win, Num, etc.) - no change (default), ON, OFF. For example -
Office (default) profile: Windows key lock - OFF, Num lock - ON;
Game profile: Windows key lock - ON, Num lock - OFF;

Corsair James 05-08-2015 05:29 PM

Please keep the feedback coming. I'm making a list now to forward to the dev teams.

Paul S 05-08-2015 07:04 PM

Corsair this is indeed a great keyboard, but are you in future going to release a fimware flash utility that allows the end user to calibrate the white levels of the keys?

these keyboards really need it, just a small utility with RGB sliders to set white levels of individual keys, then flash the settings to the keyboard so they stay there permanently.

Also adding HDD/SSD activity led function to any key (keys) to the keyboard would be great too.

Powerpuncher 05-09-2015 03:56 AM

Saw this on the pcmasterrace subreddit. I don't think something like that is currently possible.
Basically set colors for specific keys and using the existing effects to turn those on and off.

This would be a great tool. The differences in white between different LEDs is slight, but noticeable.

Please add the request to lock profiles while process is active when using auto switching. For a gaming keyboard it is "somewhat frustrating" for auto switching to be incompatible with overlays like Overwolf and Steam chat and any other process that may decide to temporarily draw focus from the game process.

Thanks mate yea i think its a good idea, shouldnt be too hard for corsair to do either really.

We need to sort out the keyboards problems before adding any other features

Just done a quick mockup, something simple like this is all it needs.

1. As already suggested, allow linking a profile to multiple programs. However, also allow linking to entire multiple folders (for example, Games folder) which will initialize the profile on any program execution there, with an option to exclude files for the said folder. If another profile exists and links to a specific program in an already linked folder, it will take priority over the folder-linked profile and run instead.

2. Allow assignments for key combinations (for example, assign an action for Alt+1, etc).

3. Add an option to automatically turn off lighting when the display turns off/sleeps, and restore when it wakes up.

I would like to see this sdk become a reality. link to your RGB SDK?

realtime updated(Keyboard) rgb sliders so you can easily and quickly find the perfect color

Yes James put a star by this idea. Guessing and checking with 512 colors is ok, trying that with 16.8 mill is stupid at best lol.

+1 This. Finding good colors for static color profiles is VERY tedious.

Reactive typing on groups .
 
I don't know if this is implemented but i want an option to make the reactive typing only for a group . For example : If you select a group and give it a ripple effect , the light should come out of the key that you pressed not the middle of the group .



If this is a thing please tell me how to do it ..





Also .. if someone can tell me how did this guy make the B key do this without making the other keys do the same thing :

I second number 1, It's just plain stupid to have multiples of the same profile for different programs that do the same thing.

Freaxy 05-26-2015 06:51 AM

Not sure if this has been mentioned.

Link modes for both keyboard and mouse - When you set a key for mode switching on your keyboard, it also changes modes for the corsair mouse.

Exouxas 06-05-2015 12:41 PM

Folders in the Lighting and Actions tabs? I have so many different lighting things, and I'd like to organize them...

I really don't want to export and delete all the time.

terabyte 06-05-2015 12:46 PM

Even a column that tells you in which profiles the lightning/macro is used would be better than nothing. At least we'd find immediately if something is not used. Or just what is used where.

This would be an amazing change.

Exouxas 06-05-2015 02:36 PM

Maybe some cross-referencing, like "where is this lighting used" when you right click it.

Name the option "Usage". Profit.

List them all separated by a comma :p:

Better idea would be for CUE to have a auto clean function where it can delete any unused lighting or action. Then it could jsut list which lighting effects are used on the profile page
