Magic Bullet Suite 12.1: Resolve, Mercury, Trackpad

Today Red Giant released a free update to Magic Bullet Suite 12 that almost got me in trouble. The CEO of Red Giant called me and asked why we were giving so much awesome stuff away in a free update. I’m not kidding. The only answer I could come up with is that I just couldn’t wait to start using it all. Magic Bullet in Resolve Boom! Magic Bullet Looks, Mojo, Cosmo, and Film all now work inside DaVinci Resolve. Resolve is a lovely color corrector, but Magic Bullet Looks does so much more than just color, with its diffusion filters, vignettes, flares, haze, chromatic aberrations, local contrast, lens distortions, and over 200 modern, badass Looks just a click away. Mercury Playback for Colorista We completely re-wrote the color engine of Magic Bullet Colorista III to be Mercury-playback native in Premiere Pro. Now when you apply Colorista to a clip, there’s no red bar — and you can apply many layers of Colorista and still enjoy real-time playback with no rendering. This, without a doubt, is my favorite new feature in Magic Bullet Suite 12.1. read more...
