PORTLAND, OR — Red Giant (www.redgiant.com) has released Magic Bullet Denoiser II, a re-built version of its popular Denoiser 1.0 tool for removing unwanted noise and artifacts from video footage. Available as a free update for Denoiser 1.0 and Magic Bullet Suite customers, Denoiser II features intelligent default settings that provide immediate clean-up results when first applied to footage.
Unlike other denoising tools and methods that can blur fine detail, Denoiser II’s smart default settings, along with advanced noise reducing tools, deliver sharp, clean results. Denoiser II combines data over several frames to separate the noise from the image, giving users a professionally smoothed result that preserves fine details. Options like Frame Sample, Motion Estimation, Noise Hint and Shadow Offset create new sample frames, preserve fast-moving action, reduce chroma blotches, or clean up shadow areas, and are good for a number of workflow issues.
Its Motion Estimation technology/feature compares successive frames to learn what is natural motion vs. noise in the scene. Denosier II offers a number of fine tuning features that allow users to minimize over-smoothing, correct green chroma tinge, focus on shadows or de-emphasize highlights, all without losing image detail.
Footage shot in low light can be corrected to look clean and smooth. And, different video and film modes let users characterize the noise so Denoiser II can achieve the most accurate results.
Denoiser II for After Effects is available immediately and is priced at $99 for new customers. It’s available as a free update for existing customers. Magic Bullet Suite 11.3 including Denoiser II is also available for $799 for new customers.
