BulletProof Is Here!

Red Giant BulletProof is live!

Major congrats to the entire team at Red Giant. It’s truly been inspirational to watch them build this amazing app.

We made BulletProof because we needed it. It’s a filmmaker’s tool built by filmmakers. For real.

You’re on set. You’re shooting like crazy. Everyone’s asking you a hundred questions. You need to know that you got the shot. You review it. It’s perfect! But the first half of take one is the best, as is the second half of take three. You make some quick notes. Boost the contrast and warm up the shot. Pop in a few quick in and out points and check continuity instantly in a playlist. Circle that take. Rate it five stars for good measure. Copy/paste that warm, contrasty look to every clip.

All in seconds, all on your laptop, all using an interface that works the way your brain does and gives you confidence that your shots will make it home safe—as will your creative take on them.

The footage is checksum-verified and redundantly backed up. The clips you export drop right into your editor’s NLE with all those keywords, notes, and markers intact.

Where has this been all our lives?

BulletProof is available on its own, or as part of the new Shooter Suite, which also contains PluralEyes. Looks, Colorista, and the other Magic Bullet color correction tools are now bundled together as the Color Suite. If you have questions about how all this works, check out the helpful blog post over at Red Giant.

When are you guys planning a version for BMCC?

Adding support for additional cameras is our very highest priority.

Just started using Bulletproof on paid jobs – love it. Its lacking FS700 support but I get around that by recording to an Atomos external recorder (and FS support is omcing soon no doubt).

Thanks for making this software Stu, getting a lot of use out of it!

The only thing I would like to see is an option to open footage (in the Review / Refine tabs) without copying to the catalog directory. I know this kinda goes against the purpose of the program, but I for one would find that useful.

Hi Stu

is there any planing to copy the Timecode to the proRes File? I used the settings Original (if Found) timecode but it does not found it?

Cheers Denis

Hi Denis, thanks for using BulletProof!

What camera are you shooting with? I don't believe Canon DSLRs add timecode to their footage, so Original (if Found) might not be the right setting.

Thanks for your quick answer...
It was a Canon 5D (But i am not sure if a Mark 2 or 3) I checked the QT H.264-file in Premiere and under AlternateTimecode/TimeValue i see 05:05:00:14. The same timecode i have in Nuke under ViewMetaData/Input/timecode and last i tried it in Smoke 2013 and there i have the timecode too.
Only in your Software it does not read the timecode (Sorry about my english). I tried all settings...

It would be great if this could also be a host app for the MB denoiser plugin! Denoising before edit is I believe your personal workflow, so why not make it a part of Bulletproof? Doing it through AE is a little bit painful (though worth it usually).
