Why no Proper Installation Program?

My experience has been that installation programs for video effects (for Adobe hosts) don't always find the correct place to install themselves.

Supported Video Editing/Effects Hosts

MBR Color Corrector 2 and 3 have been tested in the following host programs: Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder versions CS5, CS5.5, CS6, CC, CC2014, CC2015, CC2017, CC2018 and CC2019 for Windows and Macintosh.

Why does the effect turn my footage black and white?

You haven't activated the plugin yet. Just click on the Options... button and enter your serial number.
