Magic Bullet Looks...share here!

If you are working with Magic Bullet and have some presets that you are happy about, you can share them here.

I had made a few presets that where very very nice...but my computer crashed and I had to re-install everything from scratch. What I forgot was to save my presets to another hard drive before formatting my C: so now they are all gone! =(

I never was successful in duplicating a "Se7en" look, anybody? Anyhow, plz feel free to share settings here if you like!

Hi Soroush,

SEVEN underwent the bleach bypass aka. skip bleach process which resulted in lesser saturation with crushed black levels. You can use the BLEACH BYPASS plugin of Magic bullet and all you have to do is work on the enhancement.

Cheers,

Vigna Raajan.

Does it end up looking bleachy-green? Just making sure I got it right.

Oh and for everybody...

What's the most "film look" preset that anyone out there has? Any specific 16mm looks, or any that doo a good job of compressing shadows and livening up the colour?

It does not have a bleachy look. Instead it creates a gloomy de-saturated look.

But yes, it is inclined to green.

Metallic Look

How do you get that metallic look, i've tried taking down the saturation but it only gives half the look.

Yeah I too have been playing around to recreate the metallic or silver toned look you see in some car commercials (mostly ones of cars blasting across an open desert), but I can't quite get it to look right.



sorry if this deems as a necropost, but I figured it wouldn't hurt too much to raise this from the dead before a month has passed.

James,

If you can post a sample image of yours, and a sample of the look you are going for, I'm sure there are a few out here that will take a crack at creating a look to replicate it.
