A Green Light for Red Giant in OSX Mavericks
By Andrew Cheyne
Published on Friday, November 8th, 2013

Finally! All Red Giant products are good to go in OSX Mavericks. We have been releasing updates to our software since OSX Mavericks went live and we resolved any issues we found. In the end, there weren’t a ton of problems, but it takes a while to get all of our products tested thoroughly so we can say we have full confidence that our software is going to work 100%. Saying that, we were a bit late in our testing for this release; for that, I’m truly sorry.

In the end, only 2 suites needed to be updated:

  • Shooter Suite – The entire suite has been updated to take care of some licensing issues.
  • Color Suite – The only issue we found was with Colorista II (a big one; it crashed!).

The latest updates to both suites can be downloaded here, or simply use Red Giant Link to update your products.

To be explicit, all of our other products have been tested and are working fine in OSX Mavericks – that includes the Trapcode Suite, Keying Suite, and the Effects Suite.

Thanks for your patience as we ran this one through the testing wringer,

Andrew Cheyne – Director of Engineering

    Bravo! I’m forced to purchase a Retina MacBook Pro for some location editing and there’s no way around Mavericks presently there. Thanks for responding so fast!

  2. Brian Says:

  3. Brian Says:

    I purchased Magic Bullet Color Suite today because of the announcement that it works with Mavericks. After installing and testing Magic Bullet Looks in Premiere Pro CC, I am getting a black screen when the looks user interface opens.

    It works fine in Premiere Pro CS6 though.

    Please help,
    Darren

    I’m having an issue with Looks. I have the latest version, but does not work with the new Premiere Pro CC. I’ve tried the “go around” option, but that’s clunky too. Any idea on a new update for Looks? Thanks!

    Is anyone having problems with Power Mask in Colorista II in Premiere CC on a Mac with Mavericks? Can’t seem to get the Power Mask to show up.

    I purchased Colorista II to use on my Macs and only after loading realised it does not work in Final Cut Pro X. Is there any plans of making this software compatible at any stage? Final Cut pro X is not going away.

  11. Kaylinn Solazzo Says:

    James,

    With the lack of custom UI within the host application, it makes it difficult to further compatibility within our products. We do have a 30 days no questions asked return policy.
    I’m sorry for any confusion.
