Amplifies the high frequencies in the source clip such as edges and details. Increase the Sharpen Width parameter to sharpen more of the mid range frequencies, and adjust Sharpen Amp to control the amount of sharpening applied.

In the Sapphire Blur+Sharpen effects submenu.


Source:  The current layer.   The clip to be processed.


Sharpen Amp:   Default: 1,  Range: any.
The amount of sharpening to apply.

Sharpen Width:   Default: 10,  Range: 0 or greater.
The width in pixels to perform the sharpen. Increase to sharpen softer edges, decrease to sharpen only the sharper edges.

Opacity:   Popup menu,  Default: Normal.
Determines the method used for dealing with opacity/transparency.
All Opaque:  Use this option to render slightly faster when the input image is fully opaque with no transparency (alpha=1).
Normal:  Process opacity normally.
As Premult:  Process as if the image is already in premultiplied form (colors have been scaled by opacity). This option also renders slightly faster than Normal mode, but the results will also be in premultiplied form, which is sometimes less correct.
