Filters are a motion graphics artist's secret weapon for enhancing, fixing, and finishing a project. They are usually the last step in the creative process of building a graphics composite. Think of filters as the icing on the cake. Sometimes the icing is subtle and delicate, other times it's heavy with sprinkles, and occasionally it's used to glue layers of cake together or to cover an imperfection. In all cases, the icing is applied after the cake is baked. The same goes for filters. They can be used subtly, heavily, as decoration, or to hide or fix imperfections in the project, and they usually are applied after the project has been built.
