I've been looking into upgrading to visonlab to make use of the vast amount of filters available, but there is something holding me back.

I would really like to see more pre-key filters, particularly 'edge detect' and 'threshold'. Obviously these can be applied after keying, but why not before? For one particular shot i would like to threshold the footage, and then key out the white areas to leave just the black. I have thought of a way round this by rendering and reimporting the flitered footage but quality is lost.

Is it likely that this feature will ever be added? Surely it wouldn't be a big task to make all filters available in pre-key?

If you render out to uncompressed then reimport the footage no quality will be lost.
