The end of display problem with Magic Bullet from Red Giant !
Do you have problems with Magic Bullet, a plugin from Red Giant within Avid/Pinnacle Studio ? You have:
- an ATI graphic card ?
- Magic Bullet plugin for Pinnacle Studio which display a blank or black screen without any preview ?
In such case, it seems that your problem are ended ! Indeed, ATI just launched new drivers for your graphic card, hurry up and update your computer.
Take note that these problems appear with Catalyst V 10.5, and was present in a huge number of cases. With the latest 10.12 Catalyst version and driver, the problem disappear !! Wonderfull ! Thanks to Francis57 and JCD59, they ensure a follow up of the problem and done many test (and also helped me to solve the problem !!).
So if you did not already update your driver, do so : "download the latest 10.12 ATI driver"
You have the option to download:
- driver only (file ending with ..._dd.exe) and then I strongly recommend "Catalyst Control Center" (file ending with ..._ccc_lang3.exe)
- otherwise the Catalyst Control Center pack (file ending with ..._ccc_enu.exe)
- or finally, Catalyst Control Center APP pack (file ending with ..._ccc_ocl.exe) - This pack contains the latest technology to make your GPU working for rendering, instead of your CPU
All people who managed to solve the problem done the following: installing driver only (..._dd.exe) followed by the installation of the full Catalyst Control Center APP Pack (it seems that installing the full package does not solve the problem).
Information from Graham P (N-Vidia graphic card) :
For those of you who have Nvidia cards, without driver issues, it can be a systems app. that is stopping it. I had to go into system configuration and turn off half and half again until I found it (Windows event log). I turned the bugger off and voila there was looks builder in all it's glory. That and the HFX creator are my two favorite apps...
