This latest update for the Magic Bullet Suite (11.4.2) contains several bug fixes and improvements for products in the Suite, most notable of which is a new, GPU enhanced version of Denoiser II – speed! To download the latest version of the entire suite, you can grab it here. For full details, read below!
Magic Bullet Denoiser II v1.4:
The key feature here for this free update to Denoiser II is speed. The engine has been completely enhanced to run on OpenCL 1.1 compatible graphics card. Our testing has shown Denoiser runs 3-4 times faster using the GPU – we recommend downloading a demo and seeing for yourself. If an OpenCL 1.1 compatible graphics card isn’t found, don’t worry – Denoiser II will still run on the CPU.
In order to engineer this update, we have had to drop support for Adobe’s CS4 products. If you are using a CS4 host application, you can still use Denoiser II v1.3, which you can still find in the latest Windows 32-bit installer. OSX users will need to use the 11.4.1 version of the Magic Bullet Suite installer.
To read all the gory details, including details on supported graphics cards, check out the Denoiser II product page.
Magic Bullet Looks 2.0.9:
Several bugs have been fixed in Looks running on Retina displays:
- A fix for the mouse jumping to the top right corner of the screen when editing the value of the controls of any of the tools added to the Look.
- A fix for FCPX users so the tool overlay is properly sized and readable when a Look is applied.
A special note for FCPX users: This Magic Bullet Suite update does not contain a fix for the rendering issue we have blogged about previously.
Magic Bullet Colorista II 1.0.6:
- We have fixed an issue found in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 where the secondary keyer was importing the wrong frame.
Magic Bullet PhotoLooks 2.0:
- An issue in the Windows installer has been fixed that would cause the LooksBuilder to be unable to launch from Adobe Lightroom when running on 64-bit versions of Windows.
Enjoy the update!
