Dealing with an out-of-focus shot? Oliver Peters recommends Digital Anarchy's Samurai Sharpen, a plug-in available for FCP X, Premiere Pro and After Effects.

He writes, "What makes Samurai Sharpen different is that it includes sophisticated masking in order to restrict the part of the image to be sharpened. For example, on a facial close-up, you can enhance the sharpness of eyes without also pushing the skin texture by an unflattering amount. Yet, you still have plenty of control to push the image into a 'look.' For example, the photographic trend these days seems to be photos with an obvious over-sharpened look for dramatic appeal. If you want subtle or if you want to stylize the image, both are achievable with Samurai Sharpen."
