Magic Bullet Sweet Suite

Red Giant Software unveils v13 By Ko Maruyama
Magic Bullet from Red Giant Software.  Post Production and design studios have been using this suite for years.  It is a designer's (and animator's) go to color correction tool.  Because of it's ease of use, great looking results, and compatibility within so many editorial and compositing software hosts, it has become the color correction plugin standard.

Red Giant announced the newest update today.  Version 13 has some compelling reasons to upgrade, including a new plugin that will help you redesign noise and film grain: "Renoiser".

The flagship product within the suite, Magic Bullet Looks is now at version 4.  And with it - 200 presets that simulate your favorite tv shows and movies.  You don't have to be a colorist to dial in these looks, the recipe is already in there.

 Red Giant announced today the availability of Magic Bullet Suite 13, a significant update to its widely-used color correction, finishing and film looks tools for filmmakers. Packed with powerful new features, every single tool in the Magic Bullet Suite has received major updates and is now GPU accelerated. And for the first time ever, Magic Bullet Suite delivers real-time color correction thanks to OpenCL support in Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, extending the toolset for users of the industry's leading NLE.

'This release makes it all faster and better, both in the user experience and in the end result. Editors and filmmakers will love the intuitiveness and power of the tools, and they'll get more done, thanks to Magic Bullet Suite 13's real-time performance for color correction.'
