Get speedy, reliable noise reduction without a lot of fuss

Noisy, grainy footage distracts from the story you're telling. Enter Denoiser II, your speedy tool for cleaning video footage without a lot of fuss. Denoiser removes unwanted noise grain and artifacts while leaving the details intact for great-looking results, regardless of shooting or lighting conditions. Use smart default settings that give speedy smoothing, or dial in advanced options that treat more difficult clips. We kept every powerful, professional feature that you liked in Denoiser 1, but rewrote the product to increase its reliability and quality. For editors and filmmakers who want broadcast-ready footage, Denoiser II makes sure your story is seen through the noise.

Reasons To Buy

  • No more footage fuss. Easily remove noise artifacts from archival or amateur video so the results look acceptable for broadcast.
  • Great defaults. The default settings were carefully chosen by professional editors and filmmakers, so you get immediate clean-up results when the plug-in is applied.
  • Save low light video. Fix high ISO settings or high gain that cause too much noise, like footage shot in low light conditions, or dark environments like concerts or nightclubs.
  • Motion estimation. Identify camera motion vs subject motion with built-in Motion Estimation, so your footage gets cleaned accurately whether it’s fast or slow.
  • Part of the family. Combined with Color Suite products like Looks 2 and Cosmo, Denoiser is a smart way to clean up problems like overexposure or splotchy skin.

A rock-steady tool to tame the noise

Apply Denoiser II and see results immediately, just like you did before. We kept the powerful features and high quality of Denoiser 1 while making the tool work even better behind the scenes. Denoiser II combines data over several frames to separate the noise from the image, giving you a professionally smoothed result that preserves the fine details.

Smart defaults give out-of-box smoothing

Denoiser II has been primed to give beautiful results without you touching any controls. We worked closely with industry professionals to make sure its defaults give a great balance between noise reduction and sharpness. In many situations, simply applying Denoiser II will eliminate unwanted noise. Out-of-box is out of this world.

Fine tuning controls for stubborn noise

Denoiser II’s powerful cleanup works right away but for difficult noise situations, you can easily fine tune with the advanced controls. Use options like Frame Sample, Motion Estimation, Noise Hint and Shadow Offset to set a new sample frame, preserve fast-moving action, reduce chroma blotches, or clean up shadow areas.


Immediate one-step noise reduction
How does Denoiser II work? Very simply, just like Denosier 1. You will get great results as soon as you apply Denoiser II to your footage. Denoiser works so well out-of-the-box that you might never need to use the individual controls.

NEW! 3–4x faster with Use GPU
Feed your need for speed. The new Use GPU checkbox makes Denoiser 1.4 run 3–4x faster than Denoiser 1.3. Get a terrific speed enhancement on systems and graphic cards that support OpenCL 1.1 (and higher).

Supports all your favorite editors
Denoiser II supports After Effects CS5-CS6, Premiere Pro CS5–CS6 and Final Cut 7. Hooray! Video editors, filmmakers and motion designers can all perfect their story while keeping the footage in their preferred host application. 

Professional results preserve fine detail
While other noise-reducing methods can blur fine detail, Denoiser II delivers results that are professional and sharp. In fact, Denoiser II is faster than After Effects' built-in denoising feature, and gives superior results with less blurring and better detail preservation.

Rock-steady and dependable tool
Like a young man who learned from his elder, Denoiser II is steady and dependable. This new release allowed us to rewrite the product from the bottom up, and Denoiser II is rock-steady. Stack it with another plug-in, scream through a RAM preview... Denoiser II will stay solid through it all. Bam!

High and low motion estimation
High-speed camera movements are different than slow pans, but Denoiser II can preserve detail even in fast-moving action sequences. Its Motion Estimation compares successive frames to learn what is natural motion vs noise in the scene. Whether the motion is fast or slow, you're ready to go.

Great for chromakey and fine tuning
You will love Denosier II’s fine tuning features, since they’re the same as the ones you liked in Denosier 1. Minimize over-smoothing, correct chromakey tinge, focus on shadows or de-emphasize highlights. Denoising gets rid of noise detail without losing image detail.

Helps footage shot in low light
Don’t end the shoot when the sun goes down. Denoiser II can help with low light conditions, making that video clean and smooth when you're safely back indoors. Use the Noise Reduction and Noise Hint controls to set how much noise you do (or don't!) want to see.

Separate Video and Film modes
Two modes let you characterize the noise so Denoiser II achieves the most accurate results. Video mode adjusts the Luma and Chroma channels for better smoothing in black-and-white or full color. Film mode has adjustments for Red, Green and Blue channels that are ideal for material shot on film.

Get away from footage fuss
Stop fussing with your footage. Once you apply Denoiser II, its clean-up effect can save you time in other areas of your project, like smoothing out flaws in skin or overexposure from the camera shoot. Combined with other products like our Magic Bullet Looks 2, it's a powerful and streamlined way to work.
