"The power, performance and versatility of Magic Bullet Suite 11.1 is very impressive, especially at $799. It delivers a very powerful suite of post tools in a well-integrated environment"
Bill Anderson Photography - Bill Anderson Read more
"Magic Bullet Suite is an impressive collection of effects and tools at a bargain price” and "Keying Suite 11 is excellent value for any user planning on keying work. As always, good lighting and understanding of green screen theory is more important than the filter you use, but once you’ve shot, you couldn’t ask for a better way of keying from within After Effects."
Metro (AU) - Christopher Kenworthy Read more

New England Film - Peter Bohush Read more

"Overall the suite is sweet. Apart from a few hiccups, this set of plugins is awesome. It covers a lot of ground and can be used by all AE artists. Lots of controls for the control freaks, one-click presets for the newbies, and everything in between. I would concur with the review of a couple years ago--MBS 2008 is an outstanding buy and well worth the price tag of a $199 upgrade, $399 cross-grade, or $799 (new). "

The need of any of these applications for the purpose they are intended will make their use all the more appreciated. All my thumbs up for the Magic Bullet Suite!"
Kenstone.net - Steve Douglas Read more
"There’s really a lot of things that this package can do and you might not use everything on one job. But then if you put them all together and use them to complement each other you just might find Magic Bullet Suite 2008 can help put a polish on your edit that isn’t possible with the stock Final Cut Pro tools alone."

Putnam Valley Arts - Glen Baisly Read more
"I can't say enough about the performance of their products as a whole. When you want great results without a ton of time, Red Giant's Magic Bullet Suite should be your go to tools.. If you are considering buying even just two of the plug-ins that are included in Magic Bullet Suite, you should consider purchasing the entire suite."
MicroFilmMaker - AJ Wedding Read more

"In my testing, video that started as interview footage or that rigorously respected the camera-motion rules of film looked quite good....it's pretty darn good and will make many Mac-owning producers happy."
DV Magazine - John Jackman
“We had a pretty tight budget and thanks to Magic Bullet Suite, the finished promo was extremely well received both by Toni&Guy in the UK and globally. With a budget of less than £11,000 for the entire production, we feel we delivered a very high quality, high production value series of promotional videos for Toni&Guy – which has seen its original brief for the videos more than satisfied.”
Digital Content Creator, MTV VMS - Oliver da Costa

VideoSystems - Frank McMahon
"To the best of my knowledge, I have all of the AE plugins related to film look, field deinterlacing and telecine motion available on the market today. I've used all of them and a few 'recipes' of my own over the years. Magic Bullet Suite is truly the best of them all."
