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…
- Navigating to the “Project” pane and clicking on the “New Item” button in the lower right hand corner.
- 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.
- 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…
- Navigating to the project pane and click and drag your current sequence to the “New Item” button in the lower right hand corner.
- 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.
