where to find magic bullet tutorials...

where in the world can I find some help on how to use magic bullet suite 2.1 with AE7? bought it months ago and it's about time i start playing with it and see what it can do, however there are no instructions and red giants site doesnt help worth a flip either. searches on forums are turning up nothing. is there maybe a pdf somewhere on my pc that explains and i cant find it? or does someone know a good site with some info?

thanks guys


ps. guess I'll add is that I'm trying to learn how to use MB in AE7 to take my 60i footage that I've captured into cineform avi's and convert to 24p and how to utilize MB on making those shots look great and as "filmic" that I can. it seems to want to convert to
30p with what I was playing with and doesnt look too hot after rendering :(

yeah I've looked everywhere and I'm sure someone somewhere has posted how to use MB in AE in some random forums but I for the life of me cant find anything. Red Giant's site is about as useful as a $5 hooker, sure you can buy something from each but you sure as hell cant explain what you bought. I've kinda been playing around and figured out a few things but I dont think I'm doing it right. So the search continues and red giants support forums are about to get a hateful post :(

its too bad you didnt know about film magic pro before you got magic bullet... rendering time is way less, and you will never get any of the weird magic bullet side effects either.

last time i check you can just drag and drop your magic bullet preset on your clip or onto an adjustment layer in after effects... im not sure if magic bullet installs into your plug ins folder (where you effects are) or in the presets folder.

Here's the Magic Bullet support forum, hosted at toolfarm:

http://toolfarm.com/phorumNew5/list.php?14

And here's another forum hosted by Magic Bullet's creator Stu Maschwitz:

http://rebelsguide.com/forum/

Either one of these places would be an excellent place to look for help.
