Magic Bullet Looks is a plugin designed to improve the look of your footage. …Before we dig in and get into the specifics, I want to give you here just a …little overview of the general workflow in Looks, so that as we discuss the …individual parts, you see where they fit. So, I'm going to apply Looks to my …footage, we're here, in Adobe After Effects, and I'm going to go over to the …Effect controls panel and click the Edit button, that's how, in After Effects, we …get to this window. We see our footage here, and there's a …bunch of stuff going on, around this screen.…
Basically, here's the way that Looks thinks, we can change some of the basic …components of this shot. At least that's the, the paradigm that …looks uses. So, in other words, we can change things …about the subject. We can go to the tools on the right side. …Just have your mouse over the Tools on the right side. …If you're skilled with your mouse, you could even just kind of put it right …there on the edge. I have a harder time getting that to work. …
