Welcome to our new site
By Aharon Rabinowitz
Published on Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Hey folks – Welcome to our new website!

Of course, if you are reading this blog post, then you know that not all of it has been updated (this page, for example). We have a lot of cool stuff rolling out – a new blog, films page, an updated tutorial library with some cool functionality -  but we are doing it piece by piece so that we can test and improve.

We are working hard to make learning about our products, shopping, and watching tutorials a better experience, and we welcome any feedback along the way.

If you run into any problems, please let us know at http://redgiant.com/support. We are here to help.

Thanks!

Now, as we make our way towards Universe 1.4, we’ve opened up voting once again – this time with 2 new transitions on the table:

  • Web Transform
  • Soft Wipe

Learn more about and see them in motion at our Universe Labs page. And don’t forget to vote!

SOFTWARE UPDATE | Red Giant Universe 1.3
By Aharon Rabinowitz
Published on Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

U_VHS_16x9

Hey folks – Today we are releasing Red Giant Universe 1.3 – A new update to Universe that includes new free and premium tools, and Davinci Resolve support. In total there are 13 new tools (6 free and 7 premium), bringing the Universe library to 81 effects and transitions. If you already have Universe installed, the new tools and updates can be downloaded through Red Giant Link.

If you aren’t already a member, you can sign up for Free at http://redgiant.com/universe.

Some of my favorite tools in this release include VHS (a co-creation between CrumplePop and Red Giant) Chromatic Aberration, and CrumplePop FishEye fixer for GoPro cameras. In fact 7 of the new tools are from CrumplePop, including 2 free ones: Noir Moderne and Photo2.

What's new in Universe

This update also includes a new host app. Blackmagic Davinci Resolve. Since launching Universe, Resolve users have been asking when they would be able to use tools like Knoll Light Factory EZ,  Holomatrix and Retrograde, and we’re stoked to bring you all 81 Universe effects and transitions, today.

Join Universe for Free

Important note for Resolve Users: Universe works in DaVinci Resolve 11.1 and later. However, depending on where you downloaded it from (The Blackmagic site vs. the Apple App Store) you may have issues running Universe. Here’s an FAQ that clarifies the issues and helps you through it.

As always, if you have any problems, our support team is here for you.
