    Magic Bullet Looks - Where's the label?

    preditorj40153117 Level 1

      I can not seem to find where the name of the look applied is?

       

      I often use ag film nd blockbuster w/o vignette on the same SEQ depending on Luma value. I use them to get close and then go in an tweak to match.

       

      I have a project that i am re-editing and since its nearly 2 years old I cant remember what dreamy looks i applied as a foundation and there alot od dreamy look in the suite. I did not write it down on this one.

       

      So where is the place that tells me whats applied?

          The best I can tell, once you have applied a 'named' look

          from the list of presets (either a built-in or custom setup),

          the name of the setup itself is not retained in the

          Premiere UI.

           

          You might be able to go through your existing old timeline

          and save out each preset using custom names that can be

          recalled and applied at a later time.

           

          Custom presets are saved in this location:

          C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Local\LooksBuilder\Looks\Custom

            My head just went Boom.

             

            so you are saying that there is no place in the Looks UI that tells you the preset applied?

            It doesn't even show in the history. Thats kinda wierd for any editing plugin.

             

            Wow.

              It certainly (Magic Bullet) Looks that way.

               

              Your best bet is probably saving Custom Presets with names

              based on program timecode, effect type, or scene description etc.

              Thats kinda wierd for any editing plugin.

                I didnt want to start a new thread on this because its still on the same topic.

                 

                When i reopen a clip with MBL applied, the poster frame i get is from the previous clip. If i make adjustments the adjustments are applied to the desired clip but i cant see them until i return to PPro.

                 

                I was thinking of clearing the cache, but i have never done it in the middle of a project. I want to find the something that effects the memory of MBL.

                 

                I wrote RG also.

                  When i reopen a clip with MBL applied, the poster frame i get is from the previous clip.

                  You are talking about the image within the MBL UI, correct?

                   

                  Are you going through the timeline from clip to clip

                  opening the MBL interface for each clip as you go along?

                  If so, it wouldn't surprise me if the MBL frame buffer

                  is having trouble keeping up with you.

                   

                  Maybe try opening the MBL UI and if you get a frame from

                  the previous clip, exit, scrub to a new spot in the clip and re-try.

                  I was thinking of clearing the cache...

                  I doubt the Pr cache has any effect on the MBL UI.
