Red Giant's Magic Bullet Suite 14 Now Supports Final Cut Pro and macOS Big Sur

Magic Bullet Suite 14.0.3 adds much-needed support across its toolset. 

When Maxon scooped up Red Giant, we figured exciting things would be on their way. The first big news that dropped was that Red Giant would be free to students and educators. While technically not free, the entire Magic Bullet Suite starts at $3 for students, and the license lasts six months before needing to be renewed. They also started bundling their entire software line that includes Cinema 4D and Red Giant Complete for $149/mo. 

With the release of Magic Bullet Suite version 14.0.3 comes good news for Final Cut Pro and macOS BigSur users. In November, Red Giant released Magic Bullet 14 and Trapcode 16, but Looks 5, Colorista V, and Denoiser III did not support Final Cut Pro or BigSur. This latest version now restores that compatibility. 

Additionally, Red Giant improved performance for loading thumbnails and LUTs in Looks and new refinements in Colorista including adjustment layer and keyframing issues for PPro and faster loading times for After Effects and Premiere Pro. The update is free for existing users and can be downloaded through the Red Giant Application Manager. 

While you're here, Red Giant released its latest tutorial that shows you step-by-step how to create a 16-bit video game look. Check it out.

I have been a Magic Bullet Suite owner for many years. Now they priced me out. I don't use it all the time so it's not worth it to keep. Sad.

While I prefer their old purchase model I'd be willing to move their new subscription model if it was more compatible with Resolve. While it's Premiere-centric, Magix Vegas has better compatibility with their plug-ins than BMD software.
