How to reduce video noise
on Jan 5, 2012 at 7:00:41 pm

Hello People,

I'm editting an aftermovie of a party made in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) I used a Nikon D5100 SLR Camera and a Microbeam 128 Leds for some extra light. The shots i've done without the light contents a lot of noise which is really ugly.. My question is, is there any effect or other possible way to reduce this ugly noise?

Here you have a picture where u see it clearly

Can you help me guys?

And sorry for my bad english, i'm Dutch ;)

Neat video makes a great plug-in (your going to have to pay for it). I've had some really remarkable results with it.

I agree that the Neat Video plugin does a good job.
Just as a reminder, like most new equipment, you will need to play with it a little to get good results.
Also note, renders are very slow even with a fast machine.

I suggest 2 possible approaches:

1. Render the full clips you want to use, reimport them, and then re-edit them into the timeline.
this will alleviate having to re-render every time you make a change to that footage's edit.
(faster final output render)


2. render the footage after everything has been edited.
(longer final output render)

I, too, like and use Neat. Another excellent product is Video Purifier by Innobits. They're in Sundsvall, Sweeden.
