BMCC noise reduction and sharpening
on Nov 12, 2013 at 11:24:14 pm

I am starting to edit my first commercial BMCC commercial, just wondering
what is the best way in AE to reduce noise, grains and also to sharpen.

There must be better plugins then the standard sharpening effect....

Anny tips , highly appreciated

We use Red Giant De-Noiser and Neat Video. Resolve 10's de-noiser is much better than 9's, although you can get somewhat similar results in 9 by doing split nodes (10 just makes it easier and faster for the most part). Adobe RAW reader has a decent de-noiser for basic stuff if you're shooting RAW as another option.

Great thx, yes we shot RAW 2.5k

I saw the video and site of neat video.. very impressive. Will get version 10 but first i will compare Red Giant and Adobe raw reader.

Question I cant seem to find online: At what moment in editing post is best to do the DE-noising and sharpening? I havent got Davince working as yet so will use Bridge when importing into AE then use Synthetic aperture for color correction,

Should I use the denoise plugin at the end , before rendering out final or right after color correction and before giving the whole a color look.. or even before going into Synthetic apreture for color correction.

Any tips will be great!

Every shot is different, but generally, if the shot truly needs it, I perform de-noise at the very end of the process, especially after the grade. As you push levels to balance exposure (especially on severely under exposed shots with limited bit depth) you increase the noise floor. So there's no sense in de-noising, then grading, and then only having to de-noise over again. Save the de-noise at the end of the chain and you'll typically get the best results. But again, every shot is different!
