Red Giant Software, developer and publisher of professional digital video tools including the award-winning Magic Bullet Looks shipped Magic Bullet Frames v1.0. It is now possible to shoot low-cost video and get the expensive look of film right in Final Cut Pro, Motion, or Premiere Pro. Start with ordinary interlaced video, apply Magic Bullet Frames’ plug-in in any of the supported applications to get quick and high-quality frame rate conversions with the look of true 24p film.
Magic Bullet Frames offers motion-adaptive and field-blended modes to get top quality footage at high speeds, delivering great looking, artifact-free output. Included in the Frames tool is letterboxing and line offset controls to easily create mattes and adjust the image inside the letterbox area.
“With Magic Bullet Frames, we have taken the tools that used to be available just as part of Magic Bullet Suite 2 and made them available separately at a much lower price. The package also has broader appeal with the Frames and Deartifacter tools available in Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro,” said Sean Safreed, Product Director at Red Giant Software.
