Magic Bullet for Editors
today released Magic Bullet for Editors, a Final Cut Pro plug-in that enables filmmakers to add film treatments on the FCP timeline. Based on the award-winning Magic Bullet technology, the software delivers film stock emulation, diffusion filter, and easy-to-use film-look presets. Magic Bullet for Editors also includes the film damage creation tool, called Misfire, which accurately recreates characteristics of old film, including grain, splotches, and scratches as well as projection artifacts like flicker and gate weave. In addition to a master plug-in with 13 categories of control and 50 different looks, the suite includes plug-ins for another 13 effects. It is available for $300 and is optimized for the G4/G5.
