Please note: You need Red Giant Software’s “Magic Bullet Looks” to use these presets.
Introducing “Awesome Looks” by Brent Pierce. This is my own Magic Bullet preset pack that I created, which I am providing to every filmmaker for FREE. In the past, I sold these presets for a small fee, but I now give them all to you, for free. (PS. Philip Bloom downloaded them a while back)
What is “Awesome Looks?”
- 32 customized presets to use inside Magic Bullet Looks
- Various styles, including vintage, retro, wedding, B&W’s, and more
- Completely customizable: once a preset is applied, settings can be tweaked to your needs
- Absolutely FREE: much cheaper than a standard guru preset pack from Red Giant Software
With “Awesome Looks,” you have the power to create a unique emotion and style in your film with a simple click of the mouse. Once you apply a preset, you’ll notice that there are a few effects in the line that are not enabled. These disabled effects can be enabled to add a different desired look.
Most of the presets are perfect for a standardly exposed shot, but not every preset works with every shot. If a preset looks a bit too harsh, you can easily pull down an effect and get it to look like you want. Some of the presets in “Awesome Looks” are a bit extreme and just for fun. But who knows, maybe someone needs to make an actor look like a hippie zombie.
Below are a couple quick video samples with all 32 presets.
This video was graded entirely with these presets.
So there you go, as you can see, “Awesome Looks” presets are great for whatever stylized shot you may desire. There is a text file inside the download that will instruct you on how to install these presets. Also, if you want to get even more stylized, check out these free film burns.
NOTE: I have heard some issues with these presets not working in Magic Bullet Quick Looks. They should work fine with Photolooks though.
