:) No problem.
That guy is actually in all three pictures. He's standing near the door in the first two. The image is so bad, you can barely see him. I guess I should use the same frame for all three pictures, but I didn't have time to remove the effects and re-render the video to get the original frames. If anyone thinks it would be helpful, I'll re-do the first two pictures.
Maybe it's because of the lower resolution images you're working with, but it seems to me that Neat Video is not as good at removing noise without removing image detail as Neat Image
Neat Video plug in is awsome, best results are when you make 3 passes at a low setting instead of one pass at a high setting.
We're not working with low resolution images. We are accessing the 4K RED files in Adobe Premiere Pro. Then I use the Source Settings to brighten and then add the Neat Video Plug In as an effect, just one pass. If you right click on the pictures above, you'll see that they are taken off my 1080p timeline (originally as .tif, but this software would not let me display tif files, so I converted them to bmp). I agree that it is better to do more passes at a low setting, instead of one at a high setting. I haven't tried Neat Image yet, but will take a look. Also, I'm thinking I should make add the effect to a raw clip on a 4K timeline, then copy the rendered improved image to my 1080p timeline. The result might be even better - thanks for the tip.
If you have the setting to high on one pass the images will look 'plastic'.
Neat video works miracles! I've been using it for a couple of months and love it...
We just tried it on some more footage that we thought would be totally unusable and it's fantastic. Again, it was another "poor night light" issue where there was a huge amount of noise in the image. By the way, someone above mentioned Neat Image - that's for photograhs or stills - Neat Video is for moving images.
That's my understanding - better to do it several times at low settings, removing a little more each pass. I'm experimenting now and will let you know how it goes. It seems that you remove less detail by doing it this way.
