Thanks for the help ☺Some shots I have to shoot flat, eg. log profile (depending of light conditions). My cameras have modes with the sole intention of doing this, adding sharpening in post and not in camera. However, my drones create some very difficult to work with footage. Sometimes it is both soft and noisy.

Mavic Pro has many known issues in this regard. Additionally, my Phantom 4 Pro. However, the P4P is a bit better when switched to h.265. If you have a good eye you'll spot the issues in videos online. There's frame flicker (luminace in some frames are higher than others), and lots of digital artifacts in the shadows.

I seldom use any in camera sharpening. I always do it in post. But only the drone shots really require any noise reduction. NLE noise reduction is temporal as well if that's how you describe it. It does factor in some frame filtering, so I can get rid of issues like my frame flicker. However, I'm not sure that effects sharpening, I think sharpening is frame by frame or I assume so.

This is a video I just made since getting noise reduction software for Mavic issues. I didn't do any sharpening. Partly because overloaded rendering process and didn't preview the same as it rendered for some reason. Noise reduction was only done on drone clips. Those clips were also shot in log profile.


I do Architectural Photograph & Cinematography as a part of being a Residential Real Estate Consultant.

PS. It's an excellent excuse to ride off what I love, Camera equipment :)
