Magic Bullet Suite 13 Activator
is the latest iteration of this favorite of one-man-band editing operations and larger productions alike. Red Giant has included 7 tools that help you add or remove digital noise, correct color mistakes and add fully customizable color looks to enhance your footage.
In the last version of Magic Bullet Suite, we saw great-looking real film stock emulsion added to the suite in the form of the “Magic Bullet Film” tool, and that returns for version 13. This time, however, Open CL support for real time playback steals the show. Real time playback works with a number of the tools included in the suite if you are an Adobe Premiere Pro CC user.As an Adobe Premiere Pro CC user myself, it is impossible to overstate the joys of real time playback, and that is certainly the standout feature in version 13 in my opinion. Nobody likes rendering, unless it is a convenient excuse for a coffee trip/sunshine break from the edit bay.There is also a new tool called “Renoiser” which – you guessed it – adds cinematic grain to your shots to pull back some of that sharp digital look coming out of many DSLRs these days.
Features of Magic Bullet Suite 13:
Magic Bullet Looks – 50 new Looks added, for a total of over 200. Most of them look great right out of the gate, or with just a little tinkering.
Magic Bullet Colorista IV – Still my favorite color correction tool to use. Very quick and intuitive, with lots of UI improvements giving you flexibility to arrange your workspace however you wish.
Denoiser III – Denoiser is now sporting entirely re-built code with the help of a startup backed by fellow Indiana University alumnus, Mark Cuban. Here is a little video featuring both a grainy and not-as-grainy Mark Cuban, while breaking down the improvements in Denoiser III
Magic Bullet Cosmo – In the past, this tool could make your talent’s skin look a little too plasticky in my opinion, but if used sparingly you can get some great subtle skin improvements. This tool is a must in a world that includes both high resolution cameras and directors looking for closeups.
