    Video noise reduction

    I have managed to import some footage from old 3/4" tapes into Media Composer.  It actually looks pretty good except for a lot of visual noise in very high color or dark areas.  Can anyone recommend a visual noise reduction plugin or app?

    Re: Video noise reduction

    I'm bumping this.  Someobdy else must have experience with older video footage that has noise.  We used to be able to reduce it when editing from 3/4" to 1" tape, but that was back in the dark ages!  You'd think, in this super-digital time, that there would be something akin to what Photoshop has for images that could be applied to video.

    Haven't used it, but there is a Noise Reduction plugin as part of Boris Continuum Complete.

    I have downloaded Neat and will give that a try.  Other have recommended it too.

    Thanks.

    Re: Video noise reduction

    Neat should do the job well , the others are doing it to, different type of noise might need both differnt filters , settings and workflow and that´s the reason to why it´s hard to describe a solution that always works but Neat should be a good compromize doing it all in one step, you might want to look at the advanced settings once the filter is applied and configured, also a value above 65 - 70 might be recommended, if possible, when you are trying to find the correct noise profile.

    With HiBand UMatic here I have had some success MC's CC with reducing the overall saturation and then using curves to control the peak reds,  For the dark areas using curves to reduce the blue level in the shadows has helped me. (Resolve's NR does a better job if I have time)
