Plug-in supports various editing suites
Reg Giant has released a new video effects plug-in, Magic Bullet Mojo. The software recreates the look used in many Hollywood blockbusters, warming the color temperature of skin, while simultaneously cooling it for shadows and backgrounds. A central slider adjusts both elements in unison.
Detailed adjustments can be made through the Shadow Tint control, and Bleach, which affects saturation. Three separate Skin controls are also present: Color changes skin tones, while Squeeze compresses their range, and Solo desaturates everything in a scene except for skin. The plug-in costs $99, and is compatible with Avid, Motion, After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Premiere Pro.
