Perhaps I am expecting too much of the adjustment layer concept.
As regards MBs....I think so.
I've not yet had any issues applying Looks to an AL. I find it an excellent new way to do CC/grading.
You running an nVidia card?
How does that work Jim
Do you apply an adjustment layer for each clip?
If not...I cant see the point unless its one "effect" does all.
I use the layers as I need them. Sometimes one layer for an overall grade across the sequence, and a second layer over specifics clips that get an additional effect or a different tweak to the CC. Sometimes one AL over all the clips, but cut up to match the clips so each part of the AL get's it's own effect (or group of effects). In this case, it's not much different than applying the effect to the clips itself, except that it allows me to turn them all off and on with the eyeball.
I've used a similar method in the past and the only thing I've done differently this time, is applied Colorista II to an individual clip in the sequence as well as Looks to the AL, perhaps this has caused the corruption.
I'm going to try and experiment and will report back.
I'm a bit late to this party, but also lament that MB Looks no longer works with adjustment layers in CC Premiere Pro. FWIW, it DID work just fine in CS6. Oddly, MB Looks works fine with adjustment layers in CC After Effects, so I wonder what is different between adjustment layer implementation between CC AE and CC PP.
Its frustrating to no longer be able to use MB Looks with adjustment layers, as there are times when it is a very useful workflow. Also, CS6 PP with MB Looks applied to adjustment layers crash when opened in CC PP.
Looks works just fine with CC on Adjustment Layers. If it isn't for you, something is wrong.
I have to say that since the original post, I did a reinstalled of CS6 and it worked.
Now I have a new machine and CC I've not run into any problems.
I spoke to Simon Walker, the adobe and red giant evangelist, who was very interested.
As I can't now replicate the issue, then I can't send it onto red giant. Perhaps if you're able, their support system is great. So ask them to take a look.
Brett from Red Giant confirmed that there is a problem with the newest version of MB Looks, and suggested that an earlier version may work with CC Premiere Pro. I can't get to it until Monday, but will post my results when I have them.
I had to rewind to the previous version of MBL to get my AL previews back in CC.
Works just fine now, although I can't recall offhand whether I'm missing out on "benefits by not using the latest version version".
Did anyone ever investigate this issue further?
I am in the same situation as the OP and I would really rather not re-install CS 6 seeing as I have quite alot of plugins and customizations.. Anyone found a workaround or a fix?
I found myself here because... I was trying to open last saved project and it just crashes.
I did use Magic Bullet "Looks" and "Cosmo" on both footage and adjustment layers.
"Panic... Drink Coffee" !!!!! idea !!!!
- Uninstall Magic Bullet
- Launch CS6APP
- Open same project file warning you don't have plugins installed.
- Delete the "Adjustment Layers" (you won't be able to get the adjustment layer settings back but, you will get the edit back
- Save project "new name"
- Re-install plugins
- Re-open CS6APP
- "new name" project file opens fine without the adjustment layers.
But wait!!! Why should you uninstall Magic Bullet?????
- Open a new project
- Import entire project file into new project
- Go to media bin and delete the "adjustment layers"
- Find last Sequence that had the adjustment layers and you can go back to working
We put finishing effects on entire or even sections of full edit
1. Select edit < New Sequence from clip... apply effects on new sequence
2. Not "adjustment layers" BUT!!
2. Right now I found this just be an issue with RedGiant plugins I'm going to pass this post along to them..
This is a link to our project we had this happen too. (Sound tweaking)
