IMPORTANT: The new FCPX 10.0.4 update breaks the preview functionality for Magic Bullet Looks & some other non Red Giant plug-ins.

Do NOT update IF YOU ARE USING LOOKS. If you have already updated, we currently don’t know of any way to roll it back to a previous version. Here’s some more info:

In the latest release of FCPX, Apple fixed a bug  in FCPX 10.0.4 that makes it clearer to plugins about the orientation of the video. However, because of this bug fix, you’re now seeing a flipped image in Magic Bullet Looks. Here’s why:

We already knew about the issue  a long time ago. To make sure you never experienced any problem, we put work-around for the bug in MB Looks. So you never saw the issue, because we already had it covered. However, the work around we created isn’t compatible with the latest bug fix from Apple, so it ends up causing a flipped image.

Here’s the  good news:

  • We’re on it and will fix it ASAP
  • It does not affect renders, it’s only in the preview.

Again, our recommendation, for now, is that you do not update to 10.0.4 – if you are using Looks. As soon as we have a fix, we’ll let you know.
