Product Review: Red Giant’s BulletProof


Red Giant recently released BulletProof – their new data transfer and management tool for DSLR shooters. BulletProof was first introduced as a “teaser” at NAB 2013 back in April along with the premiere of Seth Worley’s “Spy vs Guy”.

What makes BulletProof unique is its easy to follow and use workflow and controls to ingest and manage your data in the field, on-set and through to the edit bay. The simplicity of the software’s UI makes it feel like a simple utility – until you get under the hood and discover what it really does for your media – including automatically creating a backup to a separate location/drive when you ingest from your media cards. But there’s really so much more…

While the first release of Bullet Proof only works with cards/footage files from Nikon & Canon DSLRs and GoPro Hero, they are quickly adding the most demanded cameras to their list of compatibility and integration. BulletProof v1.0.0 only supports the importing of h.264 and ProRes file formats. I imagine this will be an ever-evolving process that will be automated with regular updates once you have the software installed. They are already sending out surveys to registered users asking what cameras they are currently using. Also note that it is currently only available for the Mac OS but a Windows version is in development.
