- Programmer Graeme Nattress has released his first set of plug-in filters and effects for Apple's Final Cut Pro video editing software. "The filters address the needs of the video editor who wants his finished product to look great," and also provides some useful toolbox filters. In response to FCP user needs, Graeme has written plug-ins that deal with color correction in new ways, remove noise from video, up-sample DV color, make video look more film-like, remove camera flashes and draw animating map lines. Set 1 is now available for $30.
