CS6 Production Premium and Colorista Free

I'm considering adding Magic Bullet's (MB) Colorista Free (C-Free) download for use w/CS6.

My research has uncovered ways to download & install C-Free for CS5.5, then move files from one CS5.5 folder to another CS6 folder..

My concern is that I have never had CS5.5 installed on my workstation. I had CS2 on an old machine, then purchased a new machine w/CS6 already installed. (Needed a 64-bit processor).

So, I'm thinking I don't have the necessary CS5.5 folder(s) to which C-Free would be installed, so there would be no CS5.5 folder(s) from which to move the files.

The C-Free installation instructions could be interpreted as being useless unless CS5.5 has existed on the target machine. I'm hesitant to just download and install C-Free for fear of screwing-up my current CS6 installation, which is working pretty well for me.

Does anyone know if there's a CS6-only installation for C-Free? Or am I just being overly/needlessly cautious?

Should I simply follow the instructions for installing CS5.5, and if so, will the necessary folder(s) be created by that install?

Any help appreciated.

Re: CS6 Production Premium and Colorista Free

Thanks for mentioning this, I didn't know it existed. I downloaded the windows version and found that it installed without incident in my CS6 Production Suite -- just use the CS5 installer, the CS5.5 installation tool apparently is used only if you had 5 and 5.5 both on your computer.

It installs itself into Premiere and After Efffects without intervention on the user's part.

All in all, quite a nice control, if somewhat duplicatious of the 3-way color correction Adobe provides. If you are advanced enough to need CDL, it's there and my hat is off to you if you have a need for it.
