Removing grain from footage
on Oct 14, 2011 at 5:57:46 pm

Hey folks,

I've got some footage shot on AVCHD that I'm trying to knock some of the noise/graininess out of with FCP X. I've played around with the blur filters so far but not quite getting the results I've been looking for. Anyone have any ideas?

Chris,

The Neat Video Noise Reduction plugin is just what the doctor ordered for your condition. It's really great... Miraculous even.

Try the demo first, and by all means watch the brief video tutorial on their website, which will get you up you speed very quickly, and then you won't have to come back to ask even one more question on the matter here cuz you'll be an expert.

Neat Video Noise Reduction is not available for FCP X just yet. However, you can use it in Motion 3/4/5 or FCP6/7.

From their website:
Neat Video v2.7 is the first 32-bit/64-bit build of the plug-in for Final Cut. Currently, it can run in one 64-bit host application: Motion 5.
(the plug-in continues to support the older 32-bit hosts too: FCP 7, 6; Motion 4, 3; FCE 4)

The new 64-bit version of Final Cut Pro itself - FCP X - is not yet supported due to several bugs and missing features in the initial release of FCP X. We hope that Apple will fix the discovered bugs and will add the missing features in one of the nearest updates of FCP X and then it will become possible to use Neat Video plug-in directly in FCP X. Until then, it is possible to run Neat Video in Motion 5 and then use the results in FCP X.

For my self (after trying most de-noiser) NeatVideo is the best one, however you need to work on it.
Don't use it with the default settings.

Magic Bullet DeNoiser is great also... been using it a lot lately to fix not only noise but also compression artifacts. Works like a charm, usually the default settings are good but it helps to tweak it of course.

Comes with the Magic Bullet Suite which is definitely recommended... DeNoiser and Colorista II alone are worth the price of the suite.

Hey guys. I downloaded the Neat Video plugin and am experimenting with it. This looks like what the doctor ordered. Thanks for all your input!
