A new sister site to Red Giant Software is debuting at the end of April—Red Giant People. This is a place to browse, share, download and buy presets related to a number of Red Giant Software plug-ins. The site is at www.redgiantpeople.com.
We built this site in response to user requests that we have heard for awhile. First, Magic Bullet Looks users wanted a way to share looks (.ls3) files with others. Second, we wanted to revive a sharing site called Trapcode People that had some great content for Trapcode products. So we combined these into a bigger vision to allow you to share content for all Trapcode products, Magic Bullet Looks, Knoll Light Factory, ToonIt, and more.
When we launch there will be several dozen free presets for 3D stroke, ToonIt, Particular and more. All the presets have video previews for the site. To get any of these free presets, you must sign up and get an account. Please use your real name and a valid email address. Once you validate you account, you can get all the content on the site, and even start sharing presets and projects on your own.
In addition to the free content, you will be able to browse the hundreds of presets that our site leaders—our Gurus—have built. These collections of presets are all professionally designed by broadcast designers. You can browse the paid presets individually, or see related content in a product in the Guru Store. If you like what you see, click the buy button and you will be taken to Red Giant Software to purchase the package.
We will have a video tour, help and other assets on the site to help you get the most from Red Giant People. But to really make this site work, we need your help and hopefully your generosity to share projects and preset files with other Red Giant users so that everyone benefits from the assets that the community creates.
I hope you will join Red Giant People.
