In this tutorial I will show you how to apply Magic Bullet Quicklooks to your video using Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12 Suite or Imagination Studio 4.

Versions that include Quicklooks

There are two versions of Movie Studio Platinum 12 that come with some bonus plugins and effects that are not available in the standard version. Those versions include Movie Studio Platinum 12 Suite and Imagination Studio 4. Both of these software packages include Magic Bullet Quicklooks, which has over a 100 Colour Presets you can apply in a matter of seconds to your videos to create a particular mood and look.


Make sure you have installed the Magic Bullet Quicklooks program before you boot up Movie Studio Platinum 12.

Extras like Quicklooks and NewBlueFx are installed separately to the main program. If you bought a hard copy boxed version of Movie Studio Platinum 12 Suite or Imagination Studio 4, then all your extras will be found on the 2nd installation disc.

If you bought a downloadable version direct through Sony Creative Software, then log onto your account and look up your order for download links. Click here for further instructions if you are unsure what to do.

Applying Quicklooks

Go to the Video Fx tab and look for Magic Bullet Quicklooks.

Select it and drag the only Default Template down onto your video in the timeline.

Press Apply Look inside the Fx window and the Quicklooks program will then activate.
