PPro 2.0 and Magic bullet?

We just upgraded to Premier Pro 2.0 and notice that the Magic Bullet plug-in (that used to be in PPro 1.5) is not available anymore. We called tech support and they said that we would have to get it from the software co. (Red Giant).

We went on the Red Giant page and there's nothing about PPro 2.0 compatability.

Is anyone using M.B. in PPro 2? Or is there another similiar program for different looks and film look?

Thanks,

Bruce S. Yarock

I believe you can just find the .aex file under Premiere Pro 1.5 in the plugin folder and copy it to PrPro 2.0's plugin folder. I did the same with the steadymove plugin and it worked fine. If it isn't an .aex plugin, try reinstalling it.

Kevin,
We tried that and it didn't work. The tech supprot guy at Adobe also said that 2.0 doesn't support that plug in.
Any other ideas?
Thanks

I am using the Movie Looks plug-in with Premiere Pro 2.0 and it works just fine. I remember that I had a problem at first, but think the update on the Red Giant update page is what fixed it for me. You can dowload it here:

If that doesn't fix it for you, post back and I will try and rember what I did that made it work.

Good luck,

Lloyd Coleman

This is Magic Bullet "Editors" you are referring to, right?

If so, it works fine in PPro2.0. I simply installed it the usual way ... did nothing special. Odd that the guy at Adobe made the statement he did.

I am referring to the Magic Bullet 'Movie Looks' plug-in that came free with PPro 1.5. I think it is a stipped down version of the 'Editors' product. It came with about 5 pre-set looks and then I downloaded about 5 more free ones.

I noticed this too. Best work around is to leave 1.51 on system, edit your scenes in 2.0, render, open in 1.51 and add your film filter. I think I found myself doing that in 1.51 anyway.

Chris, you could use the workaround or just download the fix and not have to use a workaround. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am currently using the plug-in in PPro 2.0 without any problems.

We downloaded the update and even though it shows up correctly in the plug-in's folder of PPro 2.0, it does not show up under video effects when you open the program.

Will try Chris's workaround.

Thanks,

let me further clarify our situation.
1-We never bought the complete program (Magic Bullet), but rather used the free version that came with ppro 1.5.
2-The main reason we up graded to 2.0 was for editing hd.
3- I had captured some footage in hdv from a Sony Z1, and did some minor editing in 2.0. It worked fine, but then I wanted to try some of the "film looks" that were available in 1.5.
4- At tha point we realized that MB wasn't available in 2.0 and called tech support at Adobe ( who advised us that it wasn't available in 2.0).
5-We tried Chris's work around (render in 2.0, then bring footage into the 1.5 timeline and apply MB there).
6- We realized that the workaround would be fine if we were editing in SD, but inHDv it didn't work in 1.5 ( When we rendered the avi from the hd timeline in 2.0, it down graded it to standard).
7- We also downloaded the fix from Red Giant,and moved it into the plug ins folder in 2.0, but MB still wouldn't come up in the effects section of 2.0

So...would MB work in ppro 2.0 if we bought the entire editor program?
Thanks again

MB Editors 2.0 is working fine for me in PPro2.0. I'm using it on Sony 1080i HDV footage that has been transcoded into Cineform avi.
