For 24 hours only, B&H has Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 available at a 50% discount. If you're the daring type that shoots still photos with high ISO, Lightroom 3 has an amazing feature to clean up grain and noise. Too bad we don't have something this good with video editing software. Ends today.
A few months ago I wanted to use a Photoshop curve on my video so I exported to tiff and batch processed every frame. Works awesome but takes forever. I imagine somebody could do the same thing in Lightroom if they were desperate to get a look only that software could provide.
or you could just get it free online. just saiyan.
You really need to download and try denoiser from red giant software. It may be part of the magic bullet suite. Regardless, it works wonders, but its not magic. I'll say this, the footage looks better than it does without it. And its not expensive.
thanks for the tip Emm... this was a gr8 deal! been waiting for a break from adobe pricing. snapped it up pronto! keep up the gr8 work bro!
@Bob - Yes neatvideo works well, but doesn't compare to how well Lightroom can clean up an image. I wonder if they added something that works as well in After Effects or Premiere?
I don't know, NeatVideo does an okay job on my DSLR footage. It's not perfect, but it helps in a pinch.
