Red Giant Software announced the availability of Magic Bullet Suite version 2.0. Comprised of 18 After Effects plug-ins, the new software application delivers a complete production pipeline for processing digital video footage for output to DVD, TV, or film. Applying technology created by the post-production studio The Orphanage, users can de-interlace and de-artifact footage, apply film treatments, crop footage to any standard format, and ensure compliance with broadcast TV standards.
New features of Magic Bullet Suite 2.0 include:
· Misfire—13 filters to accurately mimic film grain, splotches, scratches, and projection artifacts
· More Looks—23 additional preset film treatments
· Look Suite Mac optimization—up to 5X faster rendering on Power Mac G5 vs. Power Mac G4
· HD capability—included as standard (no separate HD version)
Magic Bullet Suite 2.0 supports both SD and HD resolutions for $795, render licenses can be purchased for $495, and upgrading from version 1.x costs $149.
