    Duplicate the layer, add blurs, glows, and color correction as desired, make it’s opacity 50 percent.

    There are at least 4 plugins for Final Cut Pro that do the trick

    don’t limit yourself to software solutions, there is also lighting solutions such as soft or on-axis lighting, make-up, diffusion filters, overexposure and contrast controls that can all be effective at the shoot phase… “Fix it in post” implies you botched it “in camera”.

    combining several pre and post techniques is always gonna get better results.

    Doesn’t ALWAYS imply, Don. Sometimes things done in post aren’t fixes, they’re production enhancements πŸ˜‰
