If you’re using Final Cut Pro and NOT using Joe’s filter… Spend a few minutes at Joe’s Filters. Joe is about to upgrade the filters, he writes in an e-mail today:

I’m finishing a major upgrade (way, way too long in coming) and starting to look for new ways to make the filters bigger, faster and better.

He also want’s you to help with the new filters, so if you have some answers on these questions…

  • Which filters do you use most?
  • What formats are you working in? (SD, HD, HDV, DVCPRO, Red, etc)
  • How did you first learn about Joe’s Filters?
  • What other plugins do you use?
  • What kinds of new tools would you like to see? (existing things done better, or things that haven’t been done yet)


His e-mail is in the sidebar, bottom right at joesfilters.com.

I use lots of Joe’s Filters in Final Cut Pro, on almost all projects. I can highly recommend them. They are great value for your money, and you can try them out before buying.
