Looks FEATURES

Huenity (NEW)
Huenity is a powerful tool that makes it easy to simplify your color palette by customizing a range of hues. With a slick, intuitive UI that makes it simple to define the area you want to affect, Huenity makes it simple to bring together a range of colors for things like unifying skin tones, skies, any other colors in a shot. It’s also a great tool for limiting the tonal range of an image so that you can explore more stylistic looks.

Color Remap (NEW)
Color Remap is a first of its kind — a color corrector that allows you to easily map any color to any other color. You can perfectly match client color palettes, conform your shot using a color chart, or explore infinite creative options. As you remap colors, you see your results in a 3D color cube. You can easily pin down colors you don’t want to change, making Color Remap the most powerful color tool we’ve ever built.

Channel Mixer (NEW)
Channel Mixer is a powerful tool that can have a big impact on the color or your image. This tool makes it easy to feed the information from one color channel into the output of another color channel for things like creating high-quality black and white conversions, correcting color casts, and tinting and stylizing your footage.

LUT Browser (NEW)
The brand-new LUT Browser provides a sleek workflow allowing for any number of Lookup Tables to be imported, previewed on a thumbnail of your footage, and applied with ease. Expand your library of looks indefinitely. Import LUT packages, dailies LUTs, or LUTs you created with Colorista (new feature in Colorista plugin) and make them part of your everyday color workflow.

Color Handling (NEW)
Keeping up-to-date with high-end workflows and a growing number of professional cameras Color Handling provides a wide range of new color input and output transforms ensuring consistency, quality and flexibility when color correcting and creating deliverables. With Color Handling at both the beginning and end of the Looks tool chain, Magic Bullet looks can fit into any color workflow.

Looks Preset Search (NEW)
The new Preset Search makes it simple and intuitive to find the Looks preset you need through the use of creative language and context. Search for presets using keywords such as movie titles, colors, moods and more. Respond fast to your client’s requests, discover different color palettes, become inspired, and craft the perfect look for your project.

Tangent Support (NEW)
Turn your workstation into a professional grading suite. With the latest version of Looks, you can use the Colorista, 4-Way Color, and other Looks tools with Tangent control surfaces.


Colorista

Professional Color Correction On Your Timeline

COLOR COMES TO YOU

Magic Bullet Colorista V is a plugin that puts streamlined professional color correction tools directly on your editing timeline. No need to leave your host app to grade your footage.

GUIDED COLOR CORRECTION

Let Colorista V guide you, using an industry-tested color correction workflow. In just a few simple steps, this quick and easy shortcut will start you off on the right foot with a perfectly balanced shot that’s ready for a color grade.

A BETTER ADOBE EXPERIENCE

Get true real time color correction with Adobe’s Mercury playback engine. Transform Premiere Pro and After Effects into a professional color grading environment with the Colorista panel. Create multi-layered masked corrections with Adobe’s masking and tracking features. Colorista V is tightly integrated with Adobe applications, giving you a seamless color grading experience that goes far beyond the native tools.

PRO LUT WORKFLOW

Look up tables are a big part of a colorist’s workflow. Whether they’re camera manufacturer LUTs designed to bring footage into the right color space, or creative LUTs used to transform your footage with the grade from a popular film, Colorista makes it easy to import and work with LUTs. Even better, Colorista can create and output LUTs based on your color work, making it easy to share your grade across projects, people and software that reads LUTs.

A NEW COLOR ENGINE BUILT FOR HDR

Colorista has always been a great HDR color corrector. With Colorista V, we’ve overhauled the render engine with new Highlight and Shadow Region controls, improved 3-way correction, and an all-new Clarity control. A new Highlight Boost control makes it easy to upgrade any video to HDR, while the new Saturation EQ gives you control of color curves with far fewer clicks.

FEATURES

Preset Browser (NEW)
Quickly preview and apply presets with Colorista’s Preset Browser and build your own library of custom presets. If you need to color correct many similar shots across your timeline, the new Preset Browser will help you work faster, more efficiently, and with greater consistency, but it’s also a great way to quickly find a look and get creative with the color in your shot.

LUT Browser (NEW)
Look Up Tables are an integral part of your color correction process and we wanted to make them easier to work with and apply than ever before. Import and preview LUTs over a thumbnail of your footage, and expand your library of LUT’s indefinitely. Import LUT packages, dailies LUTs, or LUTs you created with Colorista‘s new LUT generation tool, and make them part of your everyday professional color workflow.

Generate LUTs (NEW)
Once you’ve created a color grade you like, use Colorista’s new LUT generation tool to save it up as a LUT and then share across your timeline, facility or even the world. Use the LUT in Colorista, Looks, on set, in cameras or any other place LUTs are used.

Saturation EQ (NEW)
Take control of saturation in your image like never before. Colorista’s powerful new Saturation EQ tools gives you a unique and powerful way to control saturation across different “bands” of lightness or saturation in your footage. Use Saturation EQ to Desaturate just the highlights or shadows or to inject color into less saturated areas while removing saturation from colors that feel too intense.
