Hi CC,

For those having tuned in, the arms thing turned out pretty decent. My subject and lighting is stark and has black straight hair (yay for keying!). The background is a muddy green too, so I luckily gave myself some leverage.

However, from the low-key lighting there's a predominant amount of noise in my shots.

Could somebody tell me the basic approach to reducing image noise as the begin treating their edits?

Thanks for all your help. Once I have something worthwhile to post, I'll most definitely do it. This project is a learning assignment so it might take some time.

If you have noise in the subject, you can use the key with the good edge and core -- noise and all -- to make a matte, which you then can use on the original footage.
