Noise is a serious problem in digital video editing. Many times footage produced by digital video cameras, camcorders, digital TV-tuners, digitizers etc. has a disturbing slight noise. This noise, caused by the sensor of the camera, is even more distracting the more gain or ISO are being dialed in to compensate for poor lighting conditions.
Neat Video is a video filter designed to reduce visible noise and grain in video footage.
Neat Video works with modern algorithms to reduce noise. They were developed especially for digital image and video editing by a professional working group. These algorithms top the quality of all classical and Wavelet based noise reduction methods. Wavelet based methods exist since about 20 years on the market and are still considered as modern. But Neat Video uses an even newer and more efficient approach.
With Neat Video it is therefore possible to distinguish between noise and details in a video. While noise can be reduced, detailed information in your video clip will be conserved. Since Neat Video is easy to handle, beginners as well as experienced users will soon achieve results.
In version 5 Neat Video analyzes several adjacent frames of your video to find the best suited area of a picture to analyze the noise.
There may be certain images where a large enough uniform area suitable for an analysis might not be found. In this case you can manually choose from a variety of preset noise profiles.
The check your settings Neat Video offers a new preview option for playback. Several frames are being looped for a fluent playback making the optimization even easier.
Extended filter presets speed up your workflow even more, for instance to remove banding artefacts, dust and scratches as well as flickering effects.
