Thanks for your very informative tutorial on magic bullet denoiser 1.0.
Didn't know how else to contact you so one quick question.
Once a clip has been processed (denoised) does that clip retain the changes for exporting to still images? We have to do special FXs with some old DV footage to each individual frame in photoshop - and am figuring denoising first with this software would shorten total time spent. Or would this further degrade the images and we should do it all in photoshop. Thanks for any advice. Lynn
First of all, thanks for the kind words. As for your question, if I understand you correctly, you are smoothing out frames one by one in photoshop and want to know if you can save out individual frames which are already smoothed and denoised out of the After Effects comp timeline with the Denoiser plugin applied. The answer is yes. You can choose to export the frame on which your time slider is with all effects applied. Or, if you want, you can export the denoised footage and then pull frames from the new footage. The degredation issue is really one of compression and will vary greatly on the still image format you choose to use. If you use a high quality (larger file) image format, you will most likely not have image quality issues.
