Filter order in Final Cut Pro

Something that can easily get over looked in Final Cut Pro is making sure you have your filters in the correct order within the filters tab. Filters start at the top and effect one another as they progress down thru the list of applied filters. A perfect example of this can be seen when applying a matte and a blur. When the Blur is applied first the blurred image shows thru an unblured matte.

When the Matte is applied first the edges of the matte are blurred as well.

Anytime you run into a result that is not what you thought it should be you may simply need to rearrange the order of the filters. Once the filters have been applied you can simply drag them up and down within the filters tab to reset the order.
