With Magic Bullet 2024, color correction is easier than ever - plus a host of new presets give designers more creative freedom. And Universe 2024 offers a great number of new presets.

Additionally, all tools in Red Giant are now available in Chinese and Japanese, making it easier for artists to get started using the software in their native language.
