    Awesome! The new tools look cool.

    Is Lift, Gamma, Gain back in there? Or at least the ability to paste/duplicate tools to another section?
    Being able to duplicate a Gradient Exposure with the same settings would be GREAT–instead of having to apply, adjust, and reference the other instance of that tool to get the same look. :)

    It’s probably specific to my system, but:

    I installed the Magic Bullet Looks 2.5 update this morning. In testing it I discovered that AE/Looks would hang every time I tried to apply a Look and return to the AE interface. Force-quit was necessary every time.
    I rolled back to the previous version and Looks again functioned as expected.

    As reported here for many months:

    Red Giant didn’t take any steps whatsoever to fix the well-known bug of blank previews using an Adjustment Layer in Premiere Pro with the new 2.5 release today. This wasn’t a problem in earlier versions of Looks, so it’s not a technical limitation of the API, just Red Giant ignoring bug reports. Looks used to be my favorite quick-click color grading tool and I invested a lot in it; now that Lumetri is free with the Creative Suite (which actually works in an Adjustment Layer, which is what Adjustment Layers are for), I’ve moved past Looks and I’m never looking back.
