PE35_Pre-SyncEarlier in the month, Red Giant software introduced Universe, a new plugin platform that is also its own community. The biggest thing about Universe is that it is free to sign up, so you can get an idea of what it’s all about before committing any hard-earned cash. Now Red Giant is back with some updates to some of their most popular software, including PluralEyes, which is now integrated with BulletProof, and a new version of Magic Bullet Looks, which is now GPU accelerated and completely rebuilt on the Universe platform.

They hinted at it when they introduced their new short Tempo, but Red Giant (thanks RED for always making me want to capitalize anytime I see the word red) is now offering a giant sale (couldn’t help myself) on all of their products. Each and every piece of software in the store is now 40% off for the next day or so (less than 24 hours as of this writing). Click through to check out the details and some of the major deals.

No one’s doubting the impact that time-play can have in motion pictures. This, you’d think, would generally refer to things like time-lapse or slow-motion — but what if some scientific breakthrough could invoke slow-motion upon real life objects, like some kind of time-warp weapon? Post-plugin powerhouse Red Giant has just released an original sci-fi/action short called Tempo that explores this possibility, and then some. It’s exciting whenever a hard-concept type of film sets its premise, proceeds to meet each and every hopeful expectation you might have given that premise, and then goes even further than you could hope for. This is the case with Tempo — check it out below. (Also, a Secret Sale soon-to-be… Shh, secret!) More »

Red Giant’s Magic Bullet Looks is an aggressive color correction tool. For a more subtle approach, I recommend Colorista, but for dramatic results very quickly, it’s hard to beat Looks. Quick Looks Limited is, as you can guess from the name, a limited set of twenty presets from Looks — free for NFS readers! Anyone can sign up using the link at the bottom of this post, but this bundle was only available with certain purchases previously. Now it’s gratis for anyone to experiment with: More »

When Apple released Final Cut Pro X, they did so without giving third-party plugin developers access ahead of time; thus there’s been a shortage of add-ons for the controversial app. Red Giant Software has just released their first plugin to be ported to FCPX, and it’s one of their simpler apps, Magic Bullet Mojo. FCPX’s current architecture doesn’t support some of the more complicated functionality included in Looks or Colorista, so X editors will have to make do with the simpler interface of Mojo for the time being. As a bonus, however, Red Giant has cut the price in half for this week only, bringing it down to $49 — and the coupon code works on all platforms, not just FCPX. Here’s the program in action: More »

Color grading plugin Magic Bullet Mojo gives very dramatic results very quickly, and for many shooters (especially those doing their own editing), a tool that makes video look more filmic — and does so with only a few sliders — is very handy. To be clear, it is not an advanced color correction tool for professional colorists (check out Colorista or the Magic Bullet Suite if that’s what you’re looking for). But I’ve got a deal for NoFilmSchool readers who want results quickly: Magic Bullet Mojo at 75% off. Normally $99, this coupon brings the plugin down to just $25. More »

When Red Giant Software released a teaser trailer for something called “Plot Device” last night, I mistakenly thought they were getting into script-writing applications. “Plot Device,” as it turns out, is in fact a 9-minute short film made for the purpose of showing off the new Magic Bullet Suite 11. Here’s the film in full, which as you can imagine features a lot of post-production “looks.” While some of these are over-the-top, they do a great job of demonstrating the extremes to which you can manipulate your images using the Suite: More »

Red Giant Software has released Magic Bullet Suite 11, which introduces a new version of Looks and adds another component, Cosmo. The nine-plugin suite is priced at $799, with upgrade pricing available at $199 if you own MBS 10, or $399 if you own any other two Magic Bullet Products — which if you do the math is a steal. The Red Giant folks have released a number of informative videos to go along with the new release, starting with a launch trailer: More »

Red Giant Software has released two free plugins that work in Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, and After Effects: a limited version of their great Colorista color-correction plugin, as well as a new plugin named LUT Buddy. More »

When Red Giant Software released their latest Magic Bullet product, Denoiser, I wondered how it would compare to my plugin of choice for noise reduction, Neat Video. Now, thanks to Andrew Reid at EOSHD, I don’t have to do this comparison myself, as he’s just compared the two: More »

Anyone who’s read the expanded PDF of the DSLR Guide knows that I use Neat Video for noise reduction. While the results are top-notch, I do have some issues with the plugin: namely, that it doesn’t take advantage of the host machine’s graphics card, and as such the render times can be quite slow. A new entrant in the video noise-reduction market is Magic Bullet Denoiser, which ships as part of the excellent Magic Bullet Suite 10. I haven’t had the chance to fire up the plug-in yet, but there are a few excellent reviews and tutorials already out there: More »

NoFilmSchool regulars know I’m a fan of Red Giant’s Magic Bullet Suite for color correction; the toolset is a great value, especially since they added Colorista II. Red Giant Creative Director Stu Maschwitz has just released a pack of looks for… well, Looks, which are focused on getting a Hollywood blockbuster look out of your footage: More »

Hot on the heels of releasing Colorista II, post-production plugin repository Red Giant Software has announced Magic Bullet Suite 10, which updates all previous Magic Bullet plugins to 64-bit and Adobe CS5 compatibility, now includes Colorista II, and throws in Grinder, PhotoLooks, and Denoiser. Grinder is their recent DSLR-specific transcoding application, PhotoLooks is their still version of Looks, and Denoiser is a brand new product that looks to be a valuable addition to the indie filmmaker’s toolkit.

Stu Maschwitz’s tutorial on color correction is one of the most-clicked links on this site, month after month. His very helpful tutorial was recorded for the cross-platform plugin Magic Bullet Colorista I, but the techniques he demonstrated applied to color correction in general. Now, however, Colorista II is available, and the amount of control the $299 plugin gives you is staggering. When it comes to software, however, a lot of people will sell you a product and then try to sell you training for that product — but here’s over an hour of free color correction tutorials from Stu. This is great stuff for an unbeatable price. More »

Magic Bullet Colorista is one of the more indispensable post-production plugins in my toolbox, as it is a very high-quality primary color corrector. I like Colorista because it’s powerful, it’s easy to use, and it’s cross-platform, which means you can use the same plugin on Macs and PCs, and within Final Cut, Premiere Pro, and After Effects. However, to date Colorista hasn’t offered secondary color correction, which allows for more precise adjustments; with the release of Colorista II, Red Giant has added this missing feature — and many more.
