Video thumbnail for vimeo video Red Giant BulletProof Media Management App Now Available in Public Beta - nofilmschoolAlmost two months ago, Red Giant announced BulletProof, a complete offload, prep, and delivery solution for camera footage. While the software was put through its paces with Spy vs. Guy (which premiered at NAB), the software is now finally open to the public in Beta form. Check out some videos below that explain how you can get started using BulletProof.

Some info about how this all works from their site:


What are you downloading?

The greatest thing since sliced bread! OK, maybe not  – sliced bread is pretty hard to top , but we think BulletProof is pretty awesome – and we want your help to make it even more awesome by testing it out, contributing feature ideas, and letting us know what works for you and what doesn’t.

You’ll be downloading Public Beta version 1.

BulletProof is free as beta software until the products full release (and we’re aiming for this summer). This version is Mac only, but we fully intend to support windows as the product further develops.

Updates

We will be sending out updates of the Beta as development continues the next few months with bug fixes, performance improvements and UI tweaks.  Updated versions will be made available through the Red Giant Link App.

Check out these videos to get you started:

Here is a pretty hefty guide to get going with it:

So as they said above, right now this is Mac only, but the program is definitely coming to Windows (we just don’t know when yet). When it’s finally released, it’s going to run for $200, but they are giving people plenty of time to try it out thanks to the public Beta. Right now only Canon, Nikon, and GoPro cameras and formats are supported, but they are going to be adding more during the Beta and well after.

To get access to the software, you’ll have to create an account with Red Giant Link first before being able to download BulletProof. Head on over to their website to read more about it and try it out yourself.

  • Looks promising but makes you wonder why nobody thought about putting all these tools under the same roof!

    And the $200 price sounds fair for the amount of stuff that it does.

  • Only the mac version is out right now. The windows beta is will come out later.

  • Finally! I was looking for a assets management app like aperture or lightroom but for videos. Hope this one is fast and doesn’t take too much resources

  • Def gonna check it out. Feels like Lightroom for video – wonder if Adobe is working on something similar….

  • Will this help simplify the work flow of 5Dmk3 raw? That would be a boon.

    • No, at least not right now. This is presently the fifth most popular topic on the bugs/feedback forum for the Beta program, though, so Red Giant is aware, though that is one of the topics they have yet to respond to.

  • Looking forward to trying this out as soon as Ive finished the project I’m working on at the moment.

    As someone who has tried using bridge and prelude (gave up on sorting footage in prelude and just went back to doing it in premiere after a few attempts) at different times, especially when pulling bits and pieces of footage together from different events I’ve shot into one project.

    For all my frustrations with capturing tape footage, one advantage of it was I organised the footage as I was capturing it and by the time I was ready to edit I was fairly familiar with the footage. Im hoping this might provide the same thing.

    • Prelude is a dream when it comes to logging metadata and transcribing. It’s pretty terrible at everything else, unfortunately, though the CC improvements look good. I wish it and BulletProof could have a baby.

  • I use CatDV ( http://www.squarebox.co.uk ) for this. Great for doc where you end up shooting a lot of footage and really need to keyword tag and search for people and locations.

    • Kevin, how do you deal with different creation dates from raw to transcoded media? And are you able to import logs like magic lantern generates?

  • If they’ll add a real denoise-filter I’d buy it in a heart-beat when it’s ready for PC.

  • Or rather. If prelude got the active metadata first light color correction from cineform and could do REAL denoising on the import/transcode phase… then I would be so happy.
