To install the Focus Magic plugin for Mac:-
  1. Save the “FocusMagic500.plugin.zip” file, if you haven’t yet done so
  2. Double-click the “FocusMagic500.plugin.zip” file to extract the “FocusMagic64.plugin” file
  3. Move the “FocusMagic64.plugin” file to the appropriate plugins folder – deleting the original file if there is one (see paths below)
Important Notes:-
  • For step 2 if you end up with a file/folder named “FocusMagic64.plugin 2” (or 3, 4, etc.), then delete those “FocusMagic64.plugin 2, 3, 4, etc” files/folders AND delete the “FocusMagic64.plugin” file, and then go back to Step 2.

"I've been a professional wildlife photographer for over 30 years. At first, I thought the 'out of focus' feature was the prize. Now, I realize the 'motion blur' is the real pearl. Amazing! Has salvaged so many images for me. Again, remarkably useful software!"
