Portland, OR (September 27, 2011) – Red Giant today announced the immediate availability of Magic Bullet Suite version 11.1. This newest version includes Magic Bullet Looks 2 for Sony Vegas Pro , which is designed specifically to enable Vegas Pro users to tap into Red Giant’s powerful, industry-popular color design tools and instantly apply the effects directly within the Vegas Pro timeline.
Magic Bullet Suite 11.1 also includes a new automated software updater, Red Giant Link. This new updater is a small automated program that detects Magic Bullet Looks 2 installations on a user’s system. Link then notifies customers of important, free compatibility or bug updates, and also alerts them when new feature-rich paid upgrades are available. This new capability adds a new layer of convenience for Magic Bullet Suite 11 customers.
“In many ways, the evolution of Magic Bullet Suite mirrors our relationship with our community. This direct connection fuels our passion to constantly extend new capabilities and add value for our customers,” said Micah Sharp, general manager, Red Giant. “Magic Bullet Suite 11.1 also embraces an entirely new editing platform. Customers have been very vocal about wanting Magic Bullet Looks on Vegas Pro. At IBC 2011, the Sony Vegas Pro community got their first glimpse of what Magic Bullet Looks 2 can do for their workflow, and we’re very pleased with their reaction.”
What’s New: Looks 2 for Sony Vegas Pro
Introduced earlier this month at IBC 2011, Magic Bullet Looks 2 delivers the full scope of color design tools from the original Looks 2 and is compatible with both Vegas Pro 10 and the forthcoming Vegas Pro 11. Magic Bullet Looks 2 is fully integrated with Magic Bullet Suite 11 and features support for all Looks presets, including Red Giant Looks Guru Preset Packs.
Magic Bullet Looks 2 integrates seamlessly with Vegas Pro, appearing in its drop-down menu along with other available effects. Users simply apply Magic Bullet Looks to a clip or effect chain within the Vegas Pro software timeline to instantly create immersive looks for sequences. Key frameable Looks parameters are also available for Vegas Pro artists, similar to the workflow for After Effects and Final Cut Pro users.
