Hello! Me again, I downloaded a MBL look file and its ".rgx" and the only apps I know that support the importing of ".rgx" is Premiere Pro and After Effects. I am working on a project in Sony Vegas Pro 18 and SVP 18 can only import ".mblook" so I want to convert it, I've seen a lot of videos where people export Looks as ".mblook" automatically so I imported the ".rgx" and exported it, but its exporting as ".rgx". I tried importing and exporting using Premiere Pro and After Effects, but still its importing as ".rgx". I want to export it as ".mblook". What do I do? I want it converted soon, though. Thank you so much!

If you face this issue, it is not an issue. It is just a misunderstanding. The MBL plug-in installs into plug-ins. One "Magic Bullet Looks" which is the old looking one which can't import looks and the other, "Looks" this is the new looking one with an import button. "Looks" is what you have to use. If you use the "Looks" plug-in, you can import and export. Anyways, thanks for the support! Enjoy!

By @Xtrm_Proxar

...Because this is a user to user forum with only occasional appearances by Adobe staff.  We are mostly volunteers that are Adobe software users like you, not Adobe employees.

 

@mgrenadier is not an Adobe employee and as such can only be on the forums when not at his "real world" job.
I'm sure he will respond if he is able to help.

Hi there, 
There is a change in the new version of Magic Bullet Looks 5.  It is now using the new format of .rgx instead of .mblook. The new .rgx format has more advantage such as adding metadata for searching. There is now a search function that allows you to search presets using keywords for example.


However, if you would like to use the old presets that were saved as .mblook, simply import it using the import button in MB Looks 5 and the old presets will be converted into .rgx automatically.

 

In case you still want to export .mblook files you will need to use the older version of Looks, Looks 4 for example. You can find the older version here: https://support.maxon.net/hc/en-us/articles/115002864447-Where-are-older-versions-of-Looks-  or simply contact Maxon customer support.
Hope this info helps. 

Cheers.

Premiere does not generate mblook's.

Guessing you need MBL installed with Premiere.

And what about After Effects? I tried both. In some YouTube videos when they export MBL looks it exports as ".mblook" instead of ".rgx"

On my PC, the .rgx files are what the Magic Bullet Looks panel exports. The only place I know that can use them is the MB Looks panel itself. You can't even use them in the input LUT slot in Colorista IV, which only accepts .cube LUT files.

 

From what I've read online, the Mblooks files are more of a "preset" than a LUT file, and my guess is they'd only work within the RedGiant panels that create/use them.

No idea. As noted, the MB Looks panel only makes rgx files on my PC. Which on opening in Notepad, look more like a preset type file than a LUT anyway.

 

I think you'd need to ask the Maxon/RedGiant support about that.

You can only import those into Magic Bullet Looks itself, as far as I know. So that's a thing to work within Red Giant's support.
