Noise reduction compared to Neat Video ?

Hi !

How good is the build in Noise reduction compared to Neat Video in your opinion ?

Do you still use other Software then Hitfilm for this or are you happy with the Noise reduction included in Hitfilm ?

    In my opinion it's excellent. I am a long time user of Neat Video but I haven't used it or upgraded it since noise reduction was added to HitFilm. 

  • Thanks. And the noise reduction i can add to Express with the addons is really the same as in Pro ?

  • Does HF noise reduction have sampling?

  • Aladdin4dAladdin4d Moderator

     @Wiggum15 and @GrayMotion Yes. ;)

    It actually has two stage sampling and a lot of additional manual controls for tweaking even further or targeting different types of noise in multiple passes.

    Just saying I agree with Aladdin4d. I find Hitfilm's Noise Reduction comparable to Neat Video and haven't updated my Neat Video since Hitfilm added NR. 

  • @Wiggum15 You cannot add Noise Reduction to HitFilm Express

    Unless they have changed that, if they have then I wouldn't know.

    @CNK It's in the Repair Pack. The actual effect talked about here is "Denoise" and "Noise Reduction", also in the Repair Pack, is for audio.

  • That's nice, looks like they changed it. I remember Triem telling me that it was Pro exclusive. That's nice to hear


  • My only remaining question is if the "Denoise" Effect in the addon for Express is the same as in Pro or if its a inferior version.

  • Aladdin4dAladdin4d Moderator

    @Wiggum15 Yes it's the same

    @CNK It's been available as an add on since 4 Express was released . I don't remember if it was available for 3 Express or not.

    @Aladdin4d FYI it was made an add-on in 4 Express. In 3 it was Pro-Only.
