Elgato Stream Deck

I was recently looking for a device that I could assign different shortcuts and tools to in order to make my workflow faster. For photoshop I have been using Adobe Nav on my iPad but then I can across the Elgato Stream Deck. It lets you assign shortcuts and functions to different buttons and have different layers and a variety of options. Just thought I would share the link to the device and a youtube video from a guy that uses it with the Adobe Suite.

​Hey Paul Boon,

How did you add actions to your stream deck? I have been searching everywhere and cannot find a way. I also just switched to a PC for all my intensive Adobe programs so still learning PC programs.

​Hi Tony, i stumbled across your post when researching using elgato's Streamdeck with PS and other adobe cc apps. having finally finished setting up all shortcuts, menus, filters, actions and tool items, i thought i would post a quick screenshot of my default Streamdeck setup. thinking i might package it up for others to use. my only issue so far is not having the ability to change the profile of one streamdeck from a button/macro on a different Streamdeck.

Thanks , Paul! After posting this I had the intention of purchasing one but never did. I am going to have to revisit this idea.

I am having trouble getting it to recognize the hotkeys in After Effects.
