Too much gain in my video (please help)
Hello all, I'm new here.
I'm editing a video that was shot on mini DV Canon Xl2
Apparently the gain was set to automatic. All the footage is super noisy. Is there a good plugin that will help with this problem or any helpful tricks anyone can suggest to take care of this?
A little bit of motion blurr is the trick I sometimes use, also a tiny bit of the median effect works.
I am unimpressed with bespoke denoisers like the vdub ones, they jus seem to make the noise 'bigger' and more 'crawly'.
I'm editing in Final cut, I tried a little gausion blur, thats didnt work, i'll try the motion blur. Is there a median effects in Final Cut?
thanks for the help
I haven't used it myself but there's a Noise Dissolve filter in the Effects -> Video Filters -> Stylize category. You could try that.
That's my opinion. If you don't like it I have others
