Neat Video is a very hardware-demanding plug-in. With so many desktop and mobile computers on the market, it’s hard to know how Neat Video will perform without running tests for yourself. In our latest blog Brady Betzel is sharing his experience with Neat Video run on MacBook Pro with M1 Max, Dell XPS 17 9710, HP zBook Fury G8 and two desktops. Check it out.
In Parts 1 & 2 of our series on using Neat Video denoiser in DaVinci Resolve we looked at ways of applying and optimizing the Neat Video plugin in Resolve’s Color page.
