|The Neat Video filter reduces visible noise and grain in video footage produced by digital video cameras, camcorders, TV-tuners and digitizers of film or analog video. Neat Video incorporates the most advanced noise reduction algorithms in the industry, building on device noise profiles to make noise reduction custom-tailored to video capturing device.|
|Neat Video combines the best-in-class intra-frame noise filter, which reduces noise and grain in individual frames, with an intelligent temporal noise filter, which further reduces any remaining imperfections by using data from several adjacent frames. Working closely together, these two filters reduce more noise and better preserve sharpness and actual details than any single filter.|
|Neat Video is multi-core, multi-CPU and multi-GPU optimized to provide the best performance with modern CPUs and CUDA-capable NVidia graphics cards.|
|"Neat Video is widely recognized in the industry as the preferred solution for high-quality noise reduction”, said Vlad from the Neat Video team. "We’re excited to expand our support from editorial and compositing systems into the DI, finishing and dailies workflows. SCRATCH has have been at the epicenter of digital filmmaking from the very beginning and has built its reputation on adopting new technologies such as support for OFX plug-ins. We believe that SCRATCH and Neat Video Pro make the ideal combination for digital workflows.”|
|“The addition of the Neat Video Pro de-grain tool really makes SCRATCH the ultimate finishing system for us”, said Leandro Marini, Founder of Local Hero Post in Santa Monica Ca. “Now I can work in a single environment from dailies through the entire DI. SCRATCH’s support for industry standard OFX plug-ins such as Neat Video Pro, RE:Vision’s Twixtor and GenArts Sapphire is an extremely important feature for me. This means that I no longer need to switch between SCRATCH and other applications like After Effects to complete a shot. Not only does this streamline my pipeline, but it makes my client sessions so much more fluid and creative.”|
