Digital Media One Uses Magic Bullet Editors on Patricia Cornwell’s Site


Video Crime Scene Challenges Acquire a Richer Look

San Francisco, CA, February 1, 2006 – Red Giant Software today announced that Digital Media One used Magic Bullet™ Editors on Patricia Cornwell’s web site to promote online crime scene video challenges. Magic Bullet Editors, a software plug-in, based on The Orphanage’s award-winning Magic Bullet technology, enabled Digital Media One to make DV footage shot on a Sony Vericam look more like film – completely surpassing the client’s expectations.

Patricia Cornwell, a NY Times #1 Bestselling Author, known for her extremely detailed book research and frustrated by Hollywood style portrayals of crime scene investigations decided to create a series of online crime scene challenges to teach viewers the real facts. Viewers watch a simulated crime scene unfold and then have to decide if the investigators are doing the right or wrong job.

“Magic Bullet Editors is such a flexible tool. We were able to able to give the crime scenes a cold look and warm up the investigation scenes to truly mimic popular looks used on TV. In tests we discovered that Magic Bullet Editors produces similar results regardless of the camera. This was good news for us since we’ll be switching from the Sony Vericam to the new JVC PRO HD camera for the next challenge. It’s helpful to know that we can easily match up looks and preserve consistency,” said Daniel Patton, VP of Production at Digital Media One.
