We nearly posted this yesterday but we're glad we didn't as a discount promo arrived in our inbox today. Red Giant have updated the Magic Bullet Suite, added some plugins and now have 25% off too.

We will put the promo code at the end of the article!

So what is new, from Red Giant:

Magic Bullet Suite 11 now encompasses nine color and image enhancement applications, and adds two new products; Cosmo a brand new tool for simple, elegant cosmetic clean up; and Looks 2, the long-awaited upgrade to the Company’s popular color treatment and imaging tools.

Looks 2

Looks 2 delivers a significant upgrade to this next generation color design tool and includes:
  • A new, professionally designed and modernized user interface;
  • 64 new and updated presets designed by professional colorists and designers;
  • New scopes, including Hue/Lightness, Skin Scope, Hue/Saturation and Memory Colors
  • 6 new tools including the Colorista 3-Way, Ranged HSL and Pop bringing the power of Colorista II right into Looks. New tools like Cosmo, Haze Flare and Lens Distortion open up users’ creative possibilities.
  • Video Out hardware support for Black Magic and AJA, the top customer request;
  • Improved speed, size and resolution for better handling of large file formats and more efficient rendering;
  • Full compatibility with Looks 1.

Red Giant have produce a short film 'Plot Device" to demo Magic Bullet Suite 11

 

Cosmo

Cosmo is a powerful new cosmetic clean up tool that smoothes skin tones, softens problem areas and fixes blemishes. Powered by Colorista II technology, Cosmo is a brand new addition to Magic Bullet Suite 11. Highlights include
  • Default settings assembled by Stu Maschwitz enable users to best capture the range of skin tones in most beauty shots. Artists can simply drop Cosmo on footage and continue working;
  • Accurately identify skin tones: Cosmo uses the same automatic skin detection from Mojo and Looks 2;
  • Sharper Details: Cosmo does an excellent job of smoothing out the skin, while giving users the control to ensure a model's facial details stay in focus. The Detail slider brings back the sharpness of important details;
  • Color Correct: The Skin Color and Skin Squeeze sliders bring skin into an acceptable range of pleasing skin color;
  • Smooth Skin: Skin Softening helps with subtleties of hiding blemishes and lightening wrinkles while preserving the natural skin grain;
  •  Simple, Fast: With Colorista II keying technology under the hood, Cosmo combines simplicity and speed with default settings that improve footage on the first pass, without the need for further customizing or tedious touchups.

Grinder v1.5

Launched at NAB 2011 and included as a free upgrade in Magic Bullet Suite 11, Grinder v1.5 is the smartest way to transcode DSLR/HDSLR footage. Grinder converts Canon video to edit-friendly formats, burns in timecode and generates web-resolution proxies in a single time-saving pass. Version 1.5 adds new features directly from customer requests, which include support for Apple ProRes, timecode from camera EXIF data, new 25p conform frame rate, and render priority control.
All products in the Magic Bullet Suite 11 are 64-bit and designed for use with Adobe’s Creative Suite 5.5, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro and Motion. Magic Bullet Suite 11 will also offer support for Final Cut Pro X in the near future. Details will be announced as soon as possible.
