Thread: Noise

    Default Noise

    Hello everyone,

    I've shot a bit of footage a few months back which was recorded in low lighting conditions. I hadn't realised the gain was set on auto and the resulting footage has a little bit of noise on it.

    It isn't a great deal but i'd like to see if i can reduce it if possible. Does anyone know of any methods using Premiere Pro or After effects that could help.

    I've looked at a list of plugins which cost a fair bit, i am prepared to spend but only if I need and can justify it.

    Any helps appreciated

    Premiere has a wider range of Effects; however the 'Parametric EQ' in After Effects appears to be more powerful than the Premiere version.

    I use Premiere Pro (CS4), other versions may be different.

    Without hearing the audio, I cannot offer anything other than a general guide. The Premiere effects I would fiddle might be a mixture of EQ, Parametric EQ, Treble, Bass, Spectral Noise Reduction, LowPass and HiPass filters, and Volume.

    Alternatively, freeware such as Audacity have similar (and more) tools; including AutoDuck, and Compression.

    Baffling? Yes. My preferred audio editor is Cubase5, which offers even more.

    Tim I think he meant noise as in speckles in his blacks.

    You could just try a bit of contrast adjustment BUT you will loose details in the blacks. If I'm wrong, WHAT TIM SAID.

    Oops, sorry.

    Hey guys, cheers for the responses. Yes its video noise thats the issue. The gain on the camera was on auto and cranked itself up. I hadn't noticed until reviewing the footage on the computer.

    When ever I've had this problem I try and adjust the contrast also you could try a bit of blur if it's acceptable to you but I normally have to just chalk up doing better next time. I've never tried a special plug in but wouldn't hold up much hope picture noise is a bitch to get rid of.

    Good luck.

    a fair old point midnight.

    I've looked at some commercial plugins that cost and it doesn't appear to be a justifyable spend
