The Dfx Video filters produced great looking effects on many of my clips, in fact it has made some clips totally usable. After Effects and Premiere come bundled with many filters which can add to your production, but the Dfx Video plug-in filters can take your footage several steps further. I have tried and tested several video plug-in filters over the years, some have been good, whilst others have failed to impress. This collection of filters gives you almost unlimited creative options with your video clips. A custom look or effect can be saved and applied to several clips, this alone could save hours of colour grading.
The interface is well thought out and easy to use without having to refer to a hefty manual. If you do need more information, then there is a comprehensive PDF manual (414 pages) which can be accessed via the Help menu. Although the Dfx Video/Film plug-in is not cheap, it is inexpensive when you compare it to buying a set of equivalent glass filters.
Download the Tiffen Dfx Video/Film plug-in filter from www.tiffen.com and you can use the filter for a free 15 day trial; if you want to continue using it after this period then you will need to purchase a licence key.
