Ok, so I have some HVX footage with a good deal of noise....it looks as if the gain was turned on (in daylight) to around 12db. Does anyone have any ideas for either places that specialize in this or things I can do to help remove this awful noise so we can use the footage alongside other clean HVX footage.


thanks for any info!!

maybe you can try to fix this to a certain amount with some good software.
PFClean would be an option, as well as some other plug-in sets (maybe there is something from "the foundry" to denoise, i think the "furnace" package has something like that). but i cannot say that this will look as good as your "clean" footage in the end.
althoug, these tools are not cheap...
do you have some screen-grabs to take a look at the problem?

yea here is a still, ideally it would be easier if we could send out the footage and have it delt with so we don't have to run something on our system and work with it, just because it would cut into editing time.

thanks again!

Perhaps adjust the levels to make it more clean, but its going to look very stylized and contrasty. That is one quick and cheap fix for the footage. Regards.

You can probably send this out to any one of a number of post houses - just make sure they're set up to receive P2 material.

Usual thing. Get three quotes, look at examples of their work... it's just a business...

There are many varieties of noise reducer available; that isn't necessarily the best.

sorry for not getting back to you earlier. i think phil is right when saying that you should contact some post-houses to solve your problem.
so you can keep on editing and later just replace the dirty with the hopefully clean shots... but donĀ“t expect miracles!

greets,
