Red Giant Pulls the Trigger With Magic Bullet Suite 12

Starting 2015 with a bang, Red Giant announces Magic Bullet Suite 12. Delivering a powerful color correction and grading experience, Magic Bullet Suite 12 includes an unprecedented number of new features and improvements to existing tools, and introduces the all-new Magic Bullet Film. Built on the same foundation as the award-winning Red Giant Universe, Magic Bullet Suite 12 includes GPU acceleration for Magic Bullet Looks, Colorista III, Mojo, Cosmo and Magic Bullet Film, bringing real time color correction and grading directly to the editing host application.

Watch the introduction to Magic Bullet Suite 12 here: https://vimeo.com/117964767

Magic Bullet Suite 12 is a return to our roots: powerful color correction with a focus on a simple and enjoyable user experience, comments Nate Sparks, Magic Bullet Suite product manager. We stepped back and looked at every feature introduced over the years and asked, How can this be better? Every tool has been optimized for the GPU, providing real time rendering and so much more.

To celebrate this monumental release, Red Giants film team has created Old/New, a new film narrated by Patton Oswalt. Watch it at redgiant.com, where it is featured on the front page of the site.

A landmark release, Magic Bullet Suite 12 is packed with new tools and other product updates. New features in Magic Bullet Looks include 198 new Looks presets based off of popular films and TV shows, as well as nine new tools like the color space tool, 4-way color tool, and the film negative and film print tools. Colorista III has been streamlined dramatically, and now integrates beautifully with Adobe Creative Clouds new masking and automatic tracking features, making multi-layered, masked corrections easier than ever. The all-new Magic Bullet Film gives footage the look of real motion picture film by emulating the entire photochemical process from the original film negative, to color correction and finally to the print stock. For a full list of new tools and features available in the Magic Bullet Suite 12, please visithttp://www.redgiant.com/products/magic-bullet-suite/.

Unlike most other comprehensive color correction tools, the Magic Bullet Suite integrates seamlessly within an artists host application of choice, giving users powerful, real time tools directly on their editing timeline. In addition, the newly updated tools in Magic Bullet Suite 12 remove the barriers of complexity usually found in professional color correction programs, by offering intuitive controls that provide artists with a more familiar experience. All of this saves time by giving users immediate feedback in an environment they already know, along with controls they intuitively understand.

Every filmmaker I know takes color seriously. But they also work with deadlines and ever-changing client demands. says Stu Maschwitz, creative director, Magic Bullet Suite. Powerful color correction should not mean having to leave your editing timeline. And dont tell your client this, but it can also be really fun. 

The tools in Magic Bullet Suite 12 are fully compatible with Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, and include additional host support for Final Cut Pro X, Avid, and other industry standard NLEs (support varies depending on the tool). This versatility allows facilities with multiple artists or large workgroups to easily share looks, tools and concepts across the production chain. GPU acceleration improves the workflow by making previewing and rendering faster than ever, while new and improved effects from tools like Mojo, Magic Bullet Looks and Magic Bullet Film let users make footage look beautiful fast.

Magic Bullet Suite has been my go-to color correction tool for years, and this update is the most exciting version yet, states filmmaker Eric Escobar. The new Film tools are exactly what Ive been wanting: real film emulation, built from extensive research, analysis and development. I love that I can quickly mimic not just the negative and print stocks, but also the photochemical process for printing my image. These powerful tools have already become essential to my grading work.

Vitec Production Solutions at the BSC Expo
Making its official debut at the BSC Expo will be the all-new dual-battery bracket, which enables users to power a Gemini panel with two industry-standard 14.4V broadcast camera batteries mounted directly to the yoke or light stand. With its extremely lightweight and on-board, ballast-free power supply, Gemini has always been easy to transport and rig at on-location shoots. Now it's even more practical in situations where portable power is preferred over mains power, including a broad range of ENG and ENP applications. Unlike competing LED panels, which can only generate 50 percent of their maximum output when battery-powered, Gemini can operate at up to 100 percent intensity running from mains and battery power alike.
