Does looks see effects/color information from other effects?

This is a known issue that Red Giant is currently working with Adobe to resolve. In order to work around this limitation, we recommend either using adjustment layers or to nest a sequence.

You can create an Adjustment Layer by…

  1. Navigating to the “Project” pane and clicking on the “New Item” button in the lower right hand corner.
  2. In the dropdown choose “Adjustment layer”. This will create a new Adjustment layer in your project items. Drag this to the video track above the clip you wish to apply looks to.
  3. Apply Looks to that adjustment layer. For best results, line up the adjustment layer to the beginning of your sequence.

You can create a Nested Sequence by…

  1. Navigating to the project pane and click and drag your current sequence to the “New Item” button in the lower right hand corner.

  2. This will create a Nested Sequence and will automatically load it as your active sequence. You’ll notice that you now just have one video track and that it is green. A nested sequence can be treated like a normal clip and you can use multiple nested sequences within one master sequence. To use Magic Bullet Looks, apply it to the nested sequence as if it were a normal clip.
