- Red Giant Software, the distributer of high-end special fx tools for digital video professionals has released (Via - Digit) updates to its Magic Bullet Editors and Knoll Light Factory visual effects plug-ins, adding support for the latest Macs and Avid software. Magic Bullet Editors 2.1 and Knoll Light Factory 2.5.1 can work under Final Cut Pro 5.1 on Intel-based Macs including the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro. According to Red Giant, render speed should be the same as on Power Mac-based systems. The updates also add support for the Mac OS X versions of Avid Xpress Pro 5.5 and Media Composer 2. As with Avid's applications, these updates only work on PowerPC-based Macs -- though Red Giant will be releasing another set of updates after Avid releases Intel versions of these suites.
