 Red Giant Pulls the Trigger With Magic Bullet Suite 12 If you're creating video on a scale higher than a hobby, you're going to go ballistic over the new Magic Bullet Suite 12. Delivering a powerful color correction and grading experience, Magic Bullet Suite 12 includes an unprecedented number of new features and improvements to existing tools, and introduces the all-new Magic Bullet Film. Built on the same foundation as the award-winning Red Giant Universe, Magic Bullet Suite 12 includes GPU acceleration for Magic Bullet Looks, Colorista III, Mojo, Cosmo and Magic Bullet Film, bringing real time color correction and grading directly to the editing host application.

Quoting  begins Magic Bullet Suite 12 is a return to our roots: powerful color correction with a focus on a simple and enjoyable user experience ... We stepped back and looked at every feature introduced over the years and asked, 'How can this be better?' Every tool has been optimized for the GPU, providing real time rendering and so much more. Quoting  ends

To celebrate this monumental release, Red Giant's film team has created "Old/New," a new film narrated by Patton Oswalt. Watch it at Red Giant online, where it is featured on the front page of the site.

A landmark release, Magic Bullet Suite 12 is packed with new tools and other product updates. New features in Magic Bullet Looks include 198 new Looks presets based off of popular films and TV shows, as well as nine new tools - like the color space tool, 4-way color tool, and the film negative and film print tools. Colorista III has been streamlined dramatically, and now integrates beautifully with Adobe Creative Cloud's new masking and automatic tracking features, making multi-layered, masked corrections easier than ever. The all-new Magic Bullet Film gives footage the look of real motion picture film by emulating the entire photochemical process - from the original film negative, to color correction and finally to the print stock.

Unlike most other comprehensive color correction tools, the Magic Bullet Suite integrates seamlessly within an artist's host application of choice, giving users powerful, real time tools directly on their editing timeline. In addition, the newly updated tools in Magic Bullet Suite 12 remove the barriers of complexity usually found in professional color correction programs, by offering intuitive controls that provide artists with a more familiar experience. All of this saves time by giving users immediate feedback in an environment they already know, along with controls they intuitively understand.
