Now that you've locked your edit, it’s time to load Colorista to apply a natural finish, and make your image pop. Under the hood is the next generation Magic Bullet engine with real-time processing for quick review and rendering of SD and HD media. Colorista is ready for action with industry-standard color wheels for precise color control.

Tweak the image further with saturation and exposure to make it balanced. Plus, isolate areas with an animatable mask shape—the easiest way to light up your talent. Colorista paired with Look Suite are the perfect tools for color finishing.

The Magic Bullet technology took the indie film world by storm with the debut of four Orphanage original digital video short films during the 2 Sundance Film Festival. Two years later the software was released to the public and it immediately became the post-production process of choice for numerous filmmakers, independent and high-end studios alike to transform the crisp soap-opera look of video to the softer and more organic look of film.

For the past 18 months, Red Giant Software has been engineering a completely new line of video enhancement and restoration products that address the wish list we've learned our customers need to finish their video projects. The number one request was an easy to use color correction tool that could deliver fast and great results. Proper color correction is of course an essential step before applying a Magic Bullet Look.

So we took it upon ourselves to create the perfect color correction tool. Magic Bullet Colorista is just what you'd expect from a Magic Bullet product designed by Stu Maschwitz from The Orphanage.
