What Version Of Cinema 4D Should You Get?

My New Guru Presets for Red Giant: Vintage Film For Looks 77 Comments



I’m so happy to announce my first GURU pack for red giant called “Nick Campbell’s Vintage Film for Looks.” Based off the vintage feel of my iPhone apps, these presets were made to add timeless tone and instant vintage color correction to your projects or photos. What’s really cool, is that these presets work anywhere Magic Bullet works including After Effects, Photoshop, and Final Cut Pro. Check out the links below to see all of the presets in action and a quick video I made to show you how to use the Presets with 3D renders. I’m so excited to see this finally out. I have been working on it for a while now and it’s so great to finally be able to share it with you guys.

    Nick,
    what is the technique to make a plugin for AE or C4D. You need some programming knowledge? Just for curiosity…

    • These are presets that are used with the Magic Bullet Looks Plugin that Stu Maschwitz and Red Giant created. I used their plugin to create custom presets.

    dear nick,
    i understand that its a great thing for you to get hooked up with red giant and all, but on the other hand i’m also disappointed because this preset stuff is really against the spirit of those trial and error / DIY – tuts i enjoyed so much.

    and btw… more after effects and not only cinema4d 2 afx with curves on an adjustment layer, please?

    • I’m with ya, Gunnar. Presets aren’t for everybody. Think about it like this… Some people have the time to do trial and error all day and make custom work from scratch every time. Presets aren’t for them. Some people however, are on a deadline and need it to look good NOW with no muss and no fuss. For those people, presets get the job done, make the client happy, and get them paid.

      on the other hand: MBLooks is great to tear those presets apart and see what you did to achieve these looks.

      will you do some more specific after effects tuts in future?
      you know, 3d is just 1 dimension too much for me! :)

      • hehe. I hope to eventually get back into some AE tutorials. Cinema is just so fun to play with and learn right now.

    • The great thing about Magic Bullet presets is that you can add a look to your image and edit that look to your liking. I usually use it to point me into the right direction I want to go, then tweak it accordingly! works great!

  8. You seem to be cornering the market on the next wave of getting analog on digital. I look forward to seeing how you take this further into mobile perhaps.
    Well done. I use both phone apps to an obnoxious degree, btw.

  9. I’m curious, does this add any new content to looks suite, or is it just your configured settings? Either way the preview video looks pretty sweet – good job nick

    Reply
    • No new content except for the After Effects Templates that are included. The Looks are special presets that I made just for the package.

    This looks great. I love the way you demonstrated these presets. Having them change and pulse in time with the music at the end was particularly effective. It’s also a great track. Who’s it by?

    Keep up the great work!

    Is there anyway you will ever just sell the photoshop filters? I don’t do anything with After Effects.

    If you sold a package just for photoshop, I’d be all over it.

    • You may want to check out Magic Bullet Photo Looks. It is made just for photoshop. It may be just what you are looking for.

  22. Nick, just wanted to say I purchased the presets, and I LOVE THEM! It’s so much fun! Thanks for the great products, as usual! I can’t wait to see what you make next! Thanks!

  25. Hi nick, were should i put the presets folder ? i’m using red giant looks for mac.

    Reply
    • Hi, Joni! Thanks for getting the presets. I think there are install instructions that come with it. I think there is a presets folder in your host application.

      Reply
  26. well, i’m using looks builder, but cant install the presets

    Reply
    • Hmmmm, I’m not sure that the presets work with the looks builder. Sorry i’m not up on the technical stuff. Have you tried contacting Red Giant?

      Reply
  27. Can I just purchase these presets without looks or do I need looks first?
