DSLR anti-moire filter for Final Cut Pro
After Martin Beek had some footage rejected by a client due to micro-moire patterns in the hair of people Jorgen Escher wrote a plug-in for Final Cut Pro:

It's free, though a donation is requested. Also, note that it may not solve all problems in your footage:
This plugin is not specifically designed to battle aliasing problems and the resulting moire from regular patterns such as brick walls. I don’t say it won’t work, but there are other and maybe easier and better ways to prevent “roof and wall” moire
