We are also happy to share our plug-in works on M1 Macs running Apple Silicon on Mac Mini, Macbook Pro, and Macbook Air. If you use Final Cut Pro X you may be wondering why it is so challenging to find sharpen effects in the video editing software.  I went through the same struggles and out of need I created a package that allows you to sharpen your footage easily. The presets lets you drag and drop a sharpening effect onto your video clip to sharpen it.  This is the solution. The Final Cut Pro x sharpening package.Version 3 of the sharpening package makes it simple to add 3 levels of sharpening to your video clips. New to version 3 is the ability to adjust the sharpening settings in Final Cut Pro x.  The installation is simple and comes with a video tutorial. The package Does not require Motion 5 and allows you to publish the the sharpening affect to your Final Cut Pro X. Once installed it just requires a drag and drop to your video clips.Includes Zip file

However, this is a great set of color grade presets that I use and recommend you add to your FCPX.
