I am moving up from iMovie to FCP X. I have many old movies from VCRs and 8mm that need to be improved. iMovie has a sharpening filter (Share > Export using Quick Time > Options > Filter > Sharpen) that does an OK job of improving the video. …
two options (perhaps three):
• you're familiar how to use the Unsharp Mask Filter within FCPX?
A lil' more elaborated than than the 'sharpen' tool in iMovie ...
• here's an excellent tutorial + a link to use a free plugin, which simulates Photoshop Filters
• … your movies ARE old - I would keep the charme of noisy, flickerin', blurry pictures

No, you can't - I made my own one!

here's a better suggestion:
Alex publishes frequently tons of superb stuff, e.g. on this famous site
on his growing list of plugins, these are the 'blurrers':
go to his site, download the disk-image, AND it has a perfect illustrated, English discription ...
(better than my homebrewn stuff)
