How much 'sharpen' effect is too much.
I guess it's a personal visual thing, but what's the most sharpen you've put on a clip? ...ta

As little as you absolute need and can get away with, so that it isn't obvious. Every image will be different, use your eye.

Certainly depends on the camera but I find myself using 3-3.5
In rare occasions I'll got to 4, never higher really.

I also agree it depends on the camera, but I usually use around 2.5-3.5 with the built-in sharpen effect.

We are finally in the HD age, and HD is supposed to be sharp. Therefore you want to make sure you ALWAYS put a Sharpen filter on everything. Maybe 2 or 3. Actually more. You don't want people to think you can't do HD do you? Here is a good example of proper sharpening:



If you are putting standard definition footage in an HD timeline, double or triple the amount of Sharpen filters. This will make the SD footage perfectly HD. Be careful because you'll be getting lots of calls from Hollywood and they can get annoying with all of their offers and money that they will throw at you.
