Magic Bullet Looks comes packaged in the Magic Bullet Suite installer. Since it's a plug-in, you must first have installed a compatible host program for it to work with (like Premiere or After Effects). When launched and its prompts followed, the installer will automatically place the required Looks components onto your hard drive in whichever directories they need to be placed.
The Magic Bullet Suite installer can also install the other products included in Magic Bullet Suite if you select them for installation.
Note that products install in trial mode by default, unless you input and submit a serial number for that product prior to its installation. This allows you to use the products you have purchased, or try out new ones before you buy.
This page explains how to install the Magic Bullet Suite product(s) you purchased and/or install the products that haven't been purchased in trial mode.
The Magic Bullet installer gives general host and OS specifications. Magic Bullet products run inside many video host applications and performs best when used with certain system configurations. Since this page is only updated as recently as the installer's release, the information and requirements relayed here may not be up-to-date if you're using an older installer version.
You can review this page for the current Magic Bullet Looks system requirements.
The installer will give you a choice of installing your Magic Bullet plug-in as a licensed product or in Trial mode. If you have a Serial Number for a product or suite, please input it to fully use the Magic Bullet product that you purchased.
If no serial number is input, your Magic Bullet Suite product will install in Trial mode. Running in Trial mode lets you try out a Magic Bullet Suite product before you purchase it. Your project may show a red "X" across the image in both previews and final renders, or may be a timed trial, or it may have keyframe limitations-- aside from that, the Trapcode product is fully functional.
If you purchase a product after installation, you can unlock Trial mode with a serial number at any time.
The Magic Bullet products will install into the host applications with a check mark. Do not check an application if you do not want it to receive the install. Make sure that you have check marked at least one host application or the Magic Bullet Suite will not install.
