Magic Bullet and Vegas...

Hi,

Just curious if everyone is using Magic Bullet looks 2.0 with the 64 bit version of Vegas without any glitches. I had a project file I could not open after loading the "trial" version of MB on my computer. But everything seems to be working fine now.

Also, I'd probably be willing to give this software a try, however, I do not want to spend full retail. I know Red Giant has offered discounts for Vegas users in the past. Does anyone know of any valid coupon codes for Magic Bullet?

Thanks!

I'm not "everyone," but I am one who has used MBL and Vegas for many years without problems. Specifically, I have MBL 2.0 64-bit in Vegas Build 683. It's rock solid and it works great.

Jerry, an earlier version of Vegas/DVDA came with a free copy of Magic Bullet Movie Looks HD and I used that freebie to eventually upgrade to the full version of Looks for only $99.
I'm not sure if that's applicable to you but it's worth checking out.

Mike,

Thanks for the info. I remember that an older version of Vegas had MB. I guess I need to find that version and then re-install it? I Never thought of going this route...

Thanks!!!

Jerry, unless I'm mistaken, all I needed was my original serial number.
Good luck with the purchase!!

Mike,

You are my hero! I dusted off my old copy of Vegas 6 and loaded the version of MB that came with this version. I purchased the $99 "upgrade" and it worked perfectly. Thanks for saving me $300.

Jerry, feel free to send the $300 my way :)
Seriously, I'm glad that it worked out for you.
Now it's time to learn MBL.
