One particularly nice feature that Final Cut Pro allows you to do is to apply a filter to only part of a clip or a sequence nest.

Some said there was a large procession of some kind. Anyway, I got stuck in bumper to bumper traffic, ran out of fuel, and eventually gave up trying to reach the venue.

More than one person has pointed me toward the relatively new blog American Editor, written by Rob Ashe: Senior Video Editor & Opening Title Designer of Conan O’Brien’s most recent ventures among other items on a long resume. Rob is a straight shooter with a wry sense of humor, who dishes up some honest opinions and advice on working in The Industry.

Phyx Stylist is a set of visual effects focused on color overlays. They range from the subtle to the garish, often within the same effect. By altering the color—either to warm, distort, or simply alter your footage—the set creates illusions, digital special effects, and correction.
