40% Off Everything at Red Giant Software Today Only

Everything at Red Giant Software is 40% off today. This only happens once a year.

Promo code: BIGSALE2010

Why are you still here? OK, because I’m so good at math, here are some examples of how stoopid this sale is:

Colorista II is usually $299, today it’s $179.

My Rebel Epic preset pack is only $41. Which is what I spent on cocktails last night. Who is better off this morning?

Magic Bullet Suite, which is ordinarily $799, is just $479 today. That’s only $80 more than Magic Bullet Looks usually sells for on its own. I gotta lie down.

Mojo and Denoiser, usually $99 each, today just $59 each. If Denoiser saves just one high-ISO shot for you, well, then you’re using it wrong, because it can save way more than one shot.

And the most under-appreciated software collection RGS offers, Warp, which includes a Corner Pin effect that makes sweet love to Mocha AE tracking points, is down from its slightly ridiculous $199 to a more appropriate $119.

Sorry for the stone-cold pimpin’, but you’d have been mad if I didn’t tell you about this.

Thanks for the tip- now a proud owner of a Magic Bullet plug-in, just need to learn how to use it...

A quick question somewhat related, yesterday in an Adobe Seminar Shane Hurlbut indicated he's had the most success with the Canon 5D going for a specific look and critical monitoring on set, as opposed to going for a flat picture profile then attempting to push the grade with the original liimited 8 bit color depth footage in post...

It sounds technically right, but do you think it's better going for the flat picture profile so you have more flexibility color correcting later?

Sigh... I was looking forward to de-noiser, but it crashes everytime I try to use it. Opened a case with RedGiant support and the reply was "We have tested and confirmed that what you are experiencing is a bug for Denoiser." with no ETA for bug fix.

Great...

Thanks for the heads up on the sale anyway, Stu. I look forward to actually being able to use the plug-in.

Hi Art, I'm so sorry that you're having trouble with Denoiser. I'm sure RGS would be happy to refund you until the bug is fixed, and give you the sale price again when the update is released.
