Today only, filmmaking software provider Red Giant is holding a 40% off sale on their entire catalog of color grading, color correcting, motion graphics and Mark Cuban backed denoiser software, to name a few. The sale goes live at 8am PST (which is the time we posted this article). Find out more below:
Most of Red Giant’s software is available as plugins for Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, Final Cut Pro X and Avid.
Personally, I’ve been a longtime user of many of the plugins found in Magic Bullet Suite 13, especially “Colorista”, “Looks”, “Denoiser”, “Mojo” and “Film”. The Magic Bullet suite is great for adding production value to your footage, in the form of a quick color grade or correction, without having to spend hours tinkering. Of course, if you are the tinkering type or have the time, then there is enough control available to really dive in and mess with those subtle highlights in your shot.

I don’t do motion graphics work myself, but if you do then there are a few programs in this sale aimed precisely at you, especially in the aptly named “Effects Suite” and “Keying Suite” — both of which are great for green screen work.
In the “Shooter Suite“, a software package that is particularly useful in the field, the “Offload” program is handy for dumping footage from multiple cameras and makes the job of a DIT a little more stress-free. “Offload” helps back up your precious footage and automatically compares the copy of the file on your drive to the card to make sure no data gets left behind. “Pluraleyes“, also in the “Shooter Suite“, assists with syncing your footage with separate audio files in your editing timeline, and I find that it works better than the built-in sync capability in Adobe Premiere Pro.
