Magic Bullet Steady removes camera shake

updated 10:25 am EDT, Mon August 11, 2008

Magic Bullet Steady

A new plugin designed to remove camera shake, jitter and noise has been released by Red Giant Software. Magic Bullet Steady uses proprietary algorithms to analyze video, then detect motion and apply one of four filtering modes. The filtered video preserves camera pans and other desired movements but removes any unwanted jarring or shaking. Another included filter allows users to reduce noise in the video without causing substantial blur, addressing a common problem among noise reduction filters. While similar (integrated) features exist in both Final Cut Pro and After Effects, the company claims that Magic Bullet Steady tends to work faster while producing similar if not greater results.

Magic Bullet Steady is compatible with Final Cut Pro 6 and After Effects CS3 and is also included in the newly updated Magic Bullet Suite 2008. A new individual license can be purchased for $200; Red Giant Software also offers volume purchase discounts.
