Please Note:
Final Cut Pro changes the luminance of imported graphics when you use the Super-White mode in the Sequence Settings. Please use the White mode to get smooth Softwipes and correct keys.

The difference between normal and "FF" versions of some filters is that the "FF" versions render in full frame. Sometimes you get better results using the full frame version when adding effects to non-moving objects. Please use the full frame versions if you cut progressive video.
