Neat Video noise reduction test

A quick comparative test of the Neat Video noise reduction plugin, mostly because YouTube does its own noise reduction so I can’t host it there. You probably want this full-screen to see the effect.

Notice the slight noise increase on the left hand side, and more signficantly the herringbone pattern caused by RF interference with the composite video over the long (ish) cable run and the not great analog performance of the cameras anyway.

The source isn’t really going to improve at all as the equipment it runs through is very old, but the plugin has pretty much completely removed the noise!

  1. Thing to watch out for with denoising is the loss of crispness in the video.

    Denoise ends up basically being low pass filter.
