MagicBulletLooks1.4 for Premiere Pro CS5 Installation Problem:'unauthorized-register or reinstall'

I have a problem with installing Magic Bullet Looks 1.4 for Premiere Pro CS5 on my computer. Upon installation, when I launch PrPro, drag and paste 'Looks' video effect on a clip on the timeline I get every time the following message:
'Magic Bullet Looks is unauthorized - please register or reinstall'
The clip over which I apply the Looks effect starts flickering and if I try to open the Looks' 'Edit' in Effects Control it fails and I got the following message: "Unable to create a preview frame for LooksBuilder'
I tried to reinstall the software (as administrator) three times but the outcome was every time the same. I need to add that 'Magic Bullet MisFire' that came with Looks 1.4 installs properly and works just fine.
Have you experienced the same problem? Can you please advise me how to fix it?
Here are my system specs:
Windows 7 (64bit)
Adobe Master Collection CS5 (64bit)
CPU: Intel i7 - 930
Mobo: Asus P6T
Graphics card: nVidia 250GTS (from MSI) with 1GB DDR3
Thank you in advance!

Magic Bullet Looks v1.4 is the latest one and the only one that works with the 64bit CS5

  • Optimal Hard Drive Configuration for Premiere Pro CS5 and Pro Tools

    I am in the process of upgrading a workstation that is used primarily for multi-track audio recording in Pro Tools to use the following Adobe CS5 products for production of promotional videos in HDV (and AVCHD for the web) as well as printed marketing materials for bands and musicians: Premiere Pro, Encore, Photoshop, Illustrator and Soundbooth.
    Since Premiere Pro is probably the most demanding application of the group, I have been studying the suggested hardware configurations on this forum with great interest, particularly HARM's suggestions (including his Generic Guideline for Disk Setup) to determine which hard drives to purchase and the optimal manner in which to configure them.
    I am upgrading an HP Z800 with dual quad core 2.44 GhZ processors with hyperthreading (16 virtual cores), 12 GB of memory and an overclocked GeForce GTX 470.  Without setting up a RAID configuration (which I cannot afford at the moment), I would like to use the 4 available HDD bays in the Z800 in the optimal manner for Premier Pro, using currently available drives.  I am currently considering purchasing a 300GB VelociRaptor to use as my C drive because of the extended load times and demands placed on the drive by ProTools and the associated Waves plug-ins.
    I would appreciate suggestions to improve my following plan:  C (300GB  WD VelociRaptor) for OS and Programs; D (1 TB WD Black Caviar) for Media and Projects; E (1 250 GB WD Black Caviar) for Pagefile (approx. 18 GB) and Media Cache; and E (2 TB WD Black Caviar) for Previews, Exports and Pro Tools audio files.
    I have great respect for the knowledge of the members of this forum and eagerly await your suggestions.

    I very much appreciate the responses to my email because I know that all of your time is valuable and that you have chosen to use some of that valuable time to help an unknown individual.  This forum is remarkable because of the wealth of knowledge available and the willingness of so many to assist others.
    I now wish to narrow my questions to save you time and so that I can get specific advice.  I may not have not been clear that I have already upgraded to the HP Z800 with dual quad core processors and overclocked GTX 470, primarily for the improved performance it will provide in ProTools.  My question now is how to optimize its performance for Premiere Pro CS5.  Based upon my research, I am considering the following two upgrades, but I am open to other suggestions if they would provide better results at a similar cost
    1. I am considering purchasing a 600GB WD VelociRaptor ( WD6000HLXH) for my C drive on which I would place OS (Windows 7, 64 Bit) and programs in an effort to reduce loading times of large programs.  I have two questions: (1) Are members of the forum seeing a significant improvment in program loading times with the VelociRaptor because I am still not convinced that the price performance of SSD's justifies their use; and (2) There are so many models of VelociRaptors now that I want to be certain that I am purchasing the best version for my needs.  In addition to the usual 10000 RPM speed, this model has 32MB Cache and a 3.5" form factor as well as a SATA 6.0GB/s interface (which I doubt my motherboard can take advantage of but it might extend the useful life of the drive with future configurations).
    2. I currently have available for installation in the Z800 the following drives:  (1) WD 2TB Black Caviar; (1) WD 1TB Black Caviar; (2) Hitachi 1TB.  I believe that the Z800 can accept up to 5 SATA hard drives which I will have if I purchase the Velociraptor.  Although I am reasonably knowledeable when it comes to hardware, I have never set up a RAID configuration.  Therefore, it would be helpful if someone could recommend one of the various RAID configurations and brieflyexplain why it would seem to be best for my needs.  I can then focus my research on understanding that one configuration.
    I was planning to follow Scott's suggestion for my current 3 drives:  OS and programs on C (WD 600 GBVelociRaptor), media and projects on D (WD 1TB Black Caviar), export files and Pro Tools files (all live musician tracks, no samples) on E (WD 2TB Black Caviar).  However, I have been reading about the benefits of a RAID configuration so I am interested in further suggestions now that I have clarified my questions.
    Thank you all for your help.

  • Where can I find Plugins / Transitions for Premiere Pro CS5 (not Cs 5.5 or 6) ?

    I am searching and searching for transition packs for Premiere Pro CS5, there are lots for 5.5 or 6 but none for 5. At least I could't find them.
    Any ideas anyone?
    Thanks in advance
    Chances are most plug-ins working for the later versions will also work for CS5, but you can check with each company if you're not sure.

  • GPU Acceleration Cards For Premiere Pro CS5

    I am ready to invest in a GPU accelerated graphics card that will speed up playback and use the Mercury Playback Engine in GPU mode.
    From what I could find on the Adobe site, these are the cards that are supported for Premiere Pro CS5
    Supported NVIDIA video cards for GPU acceleration (CS5):
    GeForce GTX 285 (Windows and Mac OS)
    GeForce GTX 470 (Windows)
    Quadro 4000 (Windows and Mac OS)
    Quadro 5000 (Windows)
    Quadro 5000M (Windows)
    Quadro FX 3800 (Windows)
    Quadro FX 4800 (Windows and Mac OS)
    Quadro FX 5800 (Windows)
    Quadro CX
    Can anyone give me a recommendation from your own experience?  Is the list of cards above still valid?
    Rich Locus

    So... before I go out and spend $650 on a GeForce GTX 680, it is this simple to make it work in CS5?
    (1) Make sure the card has at least 1GB of VRAM (which the GTX 680 has).
    (2) Edit the cuda_supported_cards.txt to add one line:  GeForce GTX 680 (starting in column 1)
    (3) Install the card?
    Do step 3 before step 2.
    Also, you can simply delete the cuda_supported_cards.txt file
    and achieve the same result.
    Will Premiere Pro recognize that I have the card and immediately take advantage of the GPU capabilities, or do I have to change options?
    You will need to specify:
    "MPE GPU Acceleration" in your Project Settings:
    If you do not have a supported card (or have not applied the hack),
    this option will be greyed out.

  • System requirements for Premiere Pro CS5

    Adobe has on its website the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5: System Requirements
    Unfortunately, this overview is severely lacking in realism and a lot of people were disappointed when their system met these minimum requirements, but still would not do what they expected, or at least not without jerkiness, hiccups and similar issues.
    The problem with these requirements as stated is that they are really bare minimum requirements to install the software, but unfortunately it does not tell how well a certain system will perform with the myriad of codecs used and the different needs and expectations people may have about their editing rig. Since this issue is nearly a year old now and nothing tangible has changed, I decided to write this article to help people understand what is realistic to expect, what influences the hardware choices in order to use CS5 to full satisfaction.
    CAVEAT: This is my personal opinion, in no way authorized or endorsed by Adobe, who have not seen anything I write here till the moment it has been published here.
    The nature of one's editing projects can have a major impact on the hardware required to run projects effectively. Long form documentaries, delivered on BRD demand different hardware and priorities in hardware setup then music clips with lots of multicam work and color effects delivered to the web, or wedding video's delivered on DVD. And unfortunately, there is no simple rule saying that if you edit X, you need Y hardware.
    The second thing that has a major impact is the source material, the codec used. Back in the old days things were very simple, you had DV material from a tape based camera and that was it. Nowadays, things have grown much more complex. The number of codecs used in source material has grown enormously, the number of formats and frame rates has grown in a similar fashion. We used to have 480, now we have added 720, 1080, 2K, 3K, 4K plus various DSLR and other formats, we had interlaced, now we have progressive as well, we used to have 25 or 29.97 FPS, now we have 24, 25, 29.97, 60 and even more frame rates. We had DV, now we have MPEG2, HDV, XDCAM, P2, AVCHD, RED, Cineform, Matrox, and numerous other codecs.
    This makes it all the more confusing for people to know what they need when they start out with video editing to run CS5 successfully.
    The codec issue:
    Some codecs are easy to handle for a computer, others are difficult to handle. It is generally known that DV material is very easy to handle and AVCHD is pretty tough to handle. The general rule is that the more compressed the material is, the harder it is for the computer to edit this. GOP (Group of Pictures) structure is an extra burden. The higher the resolution, the harder it is on the computer.
    To simplify matters one could differentiate codecs and source material in three categories, based on their properties:
    Of course boundaries when using three categories are not always very clear, but the tendency is rather clear. Easy codecs are in the upper left corner, difficult codecs are in the lower right corner. For that reason we have identified three categories, Easy, Intermediate and Difficult.
    This is somewhat similar to the color coding PR uses with none, yellow and red in the time line. It is not complete in the overview of common codecs, but is intended to show what the impact can be of different codecs and the hardware requirements.
    I realize this is a limited overview and generic in nature. It will not answer all questions, but may be helpful to avoid disappointments. It also has a number of limitations. For instance, uncompressed MS AVI SD material. No GOP structure, no compression, low resolution, that should be at the top left corner, right? Wrong. Uncompressed does not burden the CPU, but is a definite burden on the memory and disk I/O system.
    What does that mean in terms of requirements?
    System requirements:
    If the codecs you generally use are slightly more than just plain "easy", look at the improvemnts in the next column and repeat for the next column if applicable.
    I hope this can benefit people to understand there is more to choosing a system than just following the Adobe site.
    Additions or suggestions for improvements are welcome.

    A while back you gave me some advice re a kit build for Production Premium, which I submitted for consideration, and for your thoughts I thank youl. Several months on, the powers that be (UK Civil Service) have decided to go a different purchase route. The request has ended up in the hands of a well known computer supplier 'chain' (a prefered supplier) and because they can't supply the Sabertooth board you recommended they have come back to my bosses with a their recommendation based on what they will supply. My question is, would you accept it, will it take advantage of CUDA and do you foresee any problems:
    I am shooting with a Panasonic AG-HMC151E AVCHD. H.264 MPEG-4 compression.
    The chain are quoting:
    Windows 7 64 Ultimate
    CS5.5 PP
    Intel DX58sO2 Extreme
    Trudata 12GB DDR3 PC3-8500 1066MHz Unbuffered 204-pin
    HP NVIDIA Quadro 4000 2.0GB
    1 x WD 450 velociraptor 10k
    3 x WD 1TB AV-GP Greenpower 64MB SATA-II (NO RAID)
    800W PSU
    The problem with preferred suppliers is you get what you are given. Do you think there any 'conflicts' in the above spec?
    Appreciate your opinion

  • Looking for Premiere Pro CS5 v5.0.4 update for Elctronic download Version - not avalible in downloads but download manager keeps saying I need it and wont install

    My update keeps telling me I need to update my Premiere Pro CS5 to v5.0.4 but tells me there is an error downloading. Tried to download manually and install but it only has a link for retail DVD version and I have an electronic download version. I know CS5 is no longer supported but shouldn't I at least have some where I can download this update? Thanks

    that link is the only one for pre cc app updates.
    is the current downloadable version cs5.04?  if yes, that would explain why there is no update for the downloadable version.  you would uninstall your cs5 and install the current download in that situation.
    if the current downloadable version is not cs5.04, contact adobe for clarification,

  • Are these good laptops for Premiere Pro Cs5?

    Okay so I will be going off to college soon (September) and I will be buying my first laptop for this reason, but I will be doing full HD videos on it. I help photographers and videographers with photo retouching and video editing as well as making music videos and I need a laptop that will handle Premiere Pro Cs5 (acutally the whole production premium suite). I can't buy a desktop yet because my first semester is abroad and I can't travel with much weight. These are the ones I have been looking at:
    Asus G73JH-RBBX05;+Core%26%23153;+i7+Processor+/+ 17.3"+Display+/+6GB+Memory+/+500GB+Hard+Drive+-+Black/9741729.p?skuId=9741729&ci_src=14110 944&ci_sku=9741729&ref=06&loc=01&id=1218165344675

    I'm open to sugestions but I won't buy anything from HP, Sony, or Toshiba because I have had problems with their products.
    Also would an intel core i5 handle Premiere and After Effects?
    I usually make 3 to 4 videos and 100 images every 10 days but I can reduce the production to 2 and 70 if I have to.
    Thank you in advance.

    I recently purchased the Dell Studio
    16 XPS with SSD and an i7 processor to do
    nothing but Photoshop, Lightroom, and PP CS5
    processing for approx 2 TBs of past & present video
    footage  (including AVCHD) and full HD 24P and 30P
    footage from my DSLR; I run WIN 7 with 64 bit in 8 GB ram; all
    my cache's are on the SSD and I have gigabit network
    that serves up my source files at approx 40-70 MBytes/sec
    (depending on the file or files); I use the QNAP TS259 Pro as
    my NAS; the Dell has the ATI hi-performance graphics card
    that only partially takes advantage of the Mercury Playback
    Engine(no hardware acceleration with the ATI); I'm extremely
    happy with the technologies; I can do the majority of my video
    editing W/O pre-rendering altho at times for precision stuff I do
    pre-render; having the historical perspective of using PS & PP since
    1997 on Windows platforms I can assuredly tell you that the
    performance and productivity uplifts from the marriage of these
    software & hardware technologies is nothing short of miraculous;
    I couldn't be happier; don't skimp on your laptop: 1)i7 2)8GB or more
    DDR3 RAM 3) fast disks or SSD  4)HD capable monitor and 5) graphics
    card that preferably takes full advantage of the Mercury Engine; you'll need
    to shell out about $2500 for all of this (excluding the 30" monitor that I use with mine)
    Hope this helps....

  • Premiere Pro CS5 codec problem

    Hey all.  Here's the problem.  At work I use Premiere CS3 on an old Edius box that has Canopus codecs.  When I archive a final copy, I use a DVCPRO HD codec, specifically the Canopus SD50/DVHD codec, to an AVI file.
    At home I have a new copy of CS5 on a new machine.  I brought home some of these AVI files from work that used the Canopus SD50/DVHD codec.  I could not open them up at home on anything.  I went and found the codec and installed it.  Now I can open the files with Media Player no problem, but I cannot import them into Premiere, Adobe Media Encoder, or After Effects.  The result is audio and not video.
    Any suggestions that don't include re-exporting everything using a different codec?

    Any suggestions that don't include re-exporting everything using a different codec?
    Unless there is a 64-bit version of the codec, you're limited to doing just that. You might be able to drop $160 on DVCPRO HD: MainConcept. No guarantees that'll even work though.
    I'd just convert them to Lagarith Lossless Video Codec or Ut Video Codec Suite; they're lossless, free, and will both work in Premiere Pro CS5.

  • Best Hard Drive Setup for Premiere Pro CS5.5

    I'm running Premiere Pro cs5.5 on a Dell XPS 8300 (I know, I know!) with an i72600 chip and a 560TI card. The system came with two 500 GB Sata hard drives in a Raid0 configuration. I've seen a lot about proper hard drive setup but I'm a newbie (hence the Dell - I purchased before I read the forums). Should I add a third (or more) drive? How can I configure them taking into account what's already onboard? thanks very much!

    If it were me, I'd add at least two more hard drives.  A smallish one around 250 to 320 GB for the System drive.  I'd reinstall Windows onto that.
    Then I'd break out the RAID into separate drives, using one for Project and Scratch files and one for Exports.
    The second new drive would be a really big one - 1TB or more.  This I'd use exclusively for Media.*
    * If I had a tapeless camera, such as AVCHD, then I'd definitely build in some kind of data safety, like at least a second 1TB drive for a RAID 1. Or if I had more money, add a third 1TB and a RAID controller card to make it a RAID 3.

  • Hardware requirements for Premiere Pro CS5 .versus Premiere Elements 9 ?

    I have just started to work in Premiere Elements 9. What should it take to go up one "level" and start using Pro version (CS5) from a hardware performance point of view ?
    Below are my overview specification for the machine I'm using. Will it take more power into consideration ?
    Processor :  Intel Core i7 930, 2,8 Ghz - 4 kernels, 8 logical processors
    RAM memory : 6 GB
    64 bit operating system Windows 7
    HD Drive1 : Intel SSD Sa2M080 G2Gc ATA Device - 80GB
    HD Drive2 : Samsung HD103SJ ATA Device - 1 TB
    Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce Gt240 (1 GB RAM for video card)

    CS5 is at
    What KIND of files are you going to edit?
    Your system should do OK for DV and HDV but "might" struggle a bit with something like AVCHD due to only 6 gig of ram (I know, saying "only" 6 gig sounds odd, but if you go to the Premiere Pro CS5 Benchmark page and review results, you will see that some people have 24 gig)
    As far as C drive size, I have Win7 64bit Pro and MS Office full install and CS5 Master Collection and some odds'n'ends, and I only use 50 gig of drive space, with as much as possible in the way of "work" files set to my 2 other drives
    My CS5/AVCHD 1st Impressions includes a link to the computer I built
    My 3 hard drives are configured as...
    1 - 320G WD Win7 and all programs (50 used)
    2 - 320G WD Win7 swap file and PPro projects
    3 - 1T WD all video files... read and write

  • Enabling Mercury Playback engine for Premiere pro Cs5.5

    I am trying to turn on the mercury playback engine to use my graphic card (Geforce GTX 560Ti + 1gb Ram)
    I have modified that cuda_supported_cards.txt using my graphic card name and when I tried to save it it says access denied
    so I have copied that cuda_supported_cards.txt file to the desktop and modified it and replaced it back in to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5   .
    After all this the mercury engine with cuda is not turning on
    Is it becasue my graphic card will not support to CS5.5?
    Please help me.....
    Thank you...

    Run Notepad as an administrator, make the changes to add your card info, then save.  That should eliminate the access denied error.

  • Premiere Pro CS5 Launch Problem

    When I try and launch the program, it gets caught up when loading the ImporterAIEPS.bundle (see screenshot) and then crashes.
    Any recommendations to fix this?

    Hi Paul,
    Turn off your Firewall and see if it loads okay.
    If it does load, then you need to allow your Firewall to all access for:
    adobe qt32 server.exe
    adobe premiere pro.exe
    and any other Adobe programs that want access.
    I am running McAfee Internet Security with the Firewall in the Stealth Mode.
    I just wait for McAfee to tell me one of Adobe programs are trying to access the internet and I set if for full access.
    With McAfee, you may have to wait up to 5 minutes for it to prompt you while Premeire or After Effects trys to load.

  • Mac OSX v10.6.5: How's it working for you with Premiere Pro CS5?

    If you've installed Mac OSX v10.6.5, let us know how it's working for you.
    Please make sure that you're using the most recent update for Premiere Pro CS5 before you report back. We don't want to waste our time disentangling problems that were actually fixed in Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) from issues that still exist.

    So, here is my experience:
    Premiere Pro does not want to play the timeline (or the source window) anymore.  Sometime it plays for 2 minutes, sometime for 2 seconde and then stops, but most of time, it wont play at all.
    I can scroll over my timeline (no sound scrolling), but when I hit space bar (or clic on the play button) I can see the play button turning into a square (which mean it's now the stop button), but the timecodes doesn't run and the image doesn't play.
    So I suggest people to not being stupid as I was and to wait before to update... And hope a solution to come soon.

  • Final Cut Pro 7 keyboard shortcuts for Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 for Windows

    Attached is the file that contains the Final Cut Pro 7 keyboard shortcut set for Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 for Windows.
    This file was mistakenly left out of the Premiere Pro CS5 installer, so people who tried to switch to this keyboard shortcut set were unable to do so.
    Unzip the file and then install the .kys file by copying it here:
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro CS5\Keyboard Shortcuts\en_US
    (where C:\ may be replaced by the a different volume if you installed somewhere other than the C drive, and en_US may be replaced by another locale ID)
    This file was included in the Premiere Pro CS5.5 installer, so manually installing this file is only necessary for Premiere Pro CS5.
    For information about keyboard shortcuts, including how to customize them, see this page:
    "Keyboard shortcuts"

    By the way, Mac users don't need to update this file, it's for Windows users only.
