The Continuum Magic Sharp filter is a state-of-the-art image enhancement tool, which goes above and beyond any other image sharpening filter available today. Traditional unsharp mask methods or simple sharpen tools typically produce unwanted image contouring artifacts when sharpening the image yet even when pushed to extreme levels, Magic Sharp generates razor sharp results without generating any unwanted image contouring.



  • Multi-levels of image sharpening - fine, small, medium, course passes
  • Independent control over luma, chroma, red, green, blue channels
  • Range control - highlight, mid, shadow can be set individually for ultimate image control
  • Noise suppression
  • Professionally designed factory installed presets
  • Integrated FX Browser
  • Includes Compare Mode to easily see the source and result while fine tuning the filter parameters

The Continuum Magic Sharp filter offers multi-host support with a single license.
