The Best Noise-Reduction Algorithms in the Industry
Neat Video’s noise reduction algorithms surpass the quality of all classic noise reduction methods — even relatively new wavelet-based methods. Neat Video’s more advanced, more efficient approach allows it to draw a clearer distinction between random noise and details in video data, enabling it to reduce more noise and better preserve true details.
Advanced Temporal Noise Filter
Neat Video’s advanced temporal noise filter analyzes and compares a range of consecutive frames in order to gain as much information as possible. This allows the filter to more accurately distinguish between noise and detail in order to reduce noise and artifacts.
Sophisticated Spatial Noise Filter
The spatial noise filter reduces noise elements even further on a frame-by-frame basis across a range of frequencies and color channels.
Dust and Scratches Filter
In addition, Neat Video features a filter that targets specific imperfections such as film scratches, film dust, impulse interference and similar defects. This filter can also treat corrupted scan lines, spots, dots, and other video maladies.
Neat Video includes specialized mechanisms to take into account possible presence of localized or frame-wide flicker. This helps to suppress that visual imperfection itself and also to increase the accuracy of noise reduction.
This special filter mode helps to correctly reduce noise in clips containing repeated frames such as those shot in “slow shutter” or “night mode”. It also improves clips that have had their frame rates artificially increased.
Jitter of Details
This filter helps to suppress the visible jitter of fine details that may be present in video. Such jitter looks like as if there was some hot air between the viewer and objects of the scene: small details of those objects appear moving or trembling.
Artifact Removal Filter
Digital artifacts such as impulse noise created by video compression are treated by this filter. In addition, it also addresses dots and small lines that may be not fully removed by Neat Video’s regular noise filters.
This feature automatically adjusts the noise filter in situations where noise properties are changing in different parts of a video clip — ensuring more accurate noise-reduction.
The intelligent sharpening filter takes advantage of Neat Video’s noise profiling techniques to sharpen the picture without amplifying noise. Neat Video sharpening has a halo-free mode.
Quality vs Speed
Neat Video offers different quality modes in Temporal and Spatial filters to let you choose between more accurate processing and shorter processing time depending on your requirements.
Customizable Noise Filter Settings
Neat Video's filter is highly adjustable. While its default settings deliver good results, it also offers near complete control over each noise filtration setting. This allows you to fine-tune the noise reduction parameters to your exact requirements.
Filter Presets for Common Problems
Neat Video includes a collection of pre-built presets containing filter settings to solve many typical filtration tasks.
Device Noise Profiles
Neat Video generates and utilizes device-specific noise profiles. These are reusable analyses of the noise characteristics of different devices in different recording modes. Thanks to these noise profiles, Neat Video knows exactly what type of noise it is encountering in a particular clip regardless of the source or mode of capture. Armed with this information the program is able to distinguish noise from details and achieve more accurate noise-reduction results.
Auto Profile Feature
Neat Video’s Auto Profile tool automatically examines the content of a clip and builds a custom noise profile specifically for it. This is extremely accurate, however it is possible to override it and use semi-automatic or manual noise analysis methods if preferred.
Generic Noise Profiles
Neat Video can also create generic noise profiles in a situation when video contains no frames and areas suitable for analysis by Auto Profile.
Profile Check and Tuning
Building and using accurate profiles is the most important step to ensure quality noise reduction. The Profile Check and Tuning tools help to visually verify the accuracy of the profile and, if necessary, quickly adjust it to the current video.
Neat Video offers a built-in preview that allows you to view results and adjust the filter settings to optimize performance.
Neat Video has a playback feature delivering a live view of the final video directly in plug-in window.
Multiple Preview Modes
You can manually select an area of interest for preview as well as evaluate filtration results separately for each channel and frequency component.
Filter Settings Check
Several Filter Settings Checks help to tune the filter settings using specialized preview modes. This speeds up the filter tuning process and helps to achieve better final results.
Neat Video takes advantage of the full power of modern video processing applications, offering high-bitdepth rendering in programs that support it. These applications include After Effects, Premiere, Final Cut, Motion, Vegas Pro, Media Composer, Resolve and OpenFX hosts.
Supported by Most Video Editing Platforms
Neat Video works with most of the current video editing applications in use by both professional and consumer video editors.
Neat Video plug-ins work as regular video filters. They can apply noise reduction and sharpening exactly where it is required: in a chosen layer of an After Effects composition, in a chosen clip of a Premiere sequence, in a chosen track in Vegas, etc.

Got a powerful graphics card? Neat Video enables GPU acceleration to speed up processing and cut down on render times. Neat Video supports most CUDA-capable NVIDIA GPUs and a large number of OpenCL-capable AMD video cards.
Multi-Core, Multi-CPU and Multi-GPU Hardware Functionality
Neat Video is engineered to make the best use of the available hardware present in your system. It is optimized for use on multi-core, multi-CPU and multi-GPU systems. In addition, Neat Video Pro and Studio support the use of multiple graphics cards and multiple CPU cores simultaneously to deliver the best filtration speed possible.
Works with All Video File Formats
Neat Video is able to process any video format that is supported by your editing application including AVI, MPEG, MOV, WMV and many more. In other words, if your editing platform is able to open a video file, Neat Video will be able to apply noise reduction to that clip.
