Blank frame in Neat Video window (FCP X versions prior to 10.2) FCP X 10.0.7, 10.0.8, 10.0.9 and 10.1 (to some extent): These versions of FCP X (unlike 10.0.6 and earlier versions) have a bug, which causes FCP X to provide a blank frame to Neat Video's window when Neat Video is not the first effect added to the clip.
- Neat Video is a powerful video editing plug-in designed to reduce digital noise and other imperfections. It is an extremely effective way to clean up video from any source including video cameras, digitized film, TV tuners and others.
- Neat Video is available as a plug-in for many popular video editing applications such as Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro. Noise is a serious problem that complicates digital video processing. Footage coming from digital video cameras, camcorders, digital TV-tuners, film digitizers, etc., often contains an easily noticeable noise component that.
- Neat Video's Noise Removal plugin will remove those unwanted film grains and image noise from the footage. This free Final Cut Pro plugin effectively removes the color aberrations and noise from the footage.

And by chance I happened to be testing all three a couple of weeks ago on some SD BetaCamSP footage, animation and live action. The goal was to create the best up-res to progressive HD of the footage. At first I was comparing Neat and Resolve and then suddenly FCPX was updated to include it's own noise reduction filter. I found the results very dependent on the footage. I have not had a chance to try these programs on HD video yet.
- The Resolve 'Supersize' option in the file attributes dialog box did the best job of reducing tape/camera noise (not tape dropout) and returning a surprising amount of detail to faces. You could be tricked into thinking the original was shot on 16mm. The colors in drawn animation looked great with all noise in colors flattened without looking posterized. For this footage adding the Resolve noise filter did not improve the footage much, the SuperSize filter did a better job on SD footage even with the six limited, preset options in the filter. The Supersize filter does not seem to do anything to HD footage on an HD timeline. Rendering is reasonably fast. Deinterlacing was fair.
- Neat was very good with the animation with more options to adjust the parameters as far as my experience with Resolve goes. I accept my temporary ignorance if I am missing a feature in Resolve. The problem initially before the FCPX update was that deinterlacing in FCPX softened the image where a certain amount of detail was not retrievable without making the footage look weird in HD. The live action footage looked good but it was a tossup if the time taken to render it was worth it.
- The new FCPX noise filter is curiously very similar to the Resolve Supersize filter in operation (only six preset options in two sets of three). And just like the Supersize filter, it does a very good job with the SD footage I threw at it. Not as good but close. VERY SLOW to render on my particular computer, a 2013 MacPro, but I have heard it's faster than Neat on a more modern Mac.
By far, the FCPX de-interlace filter does the best job of removing interlace jitter and aliasing. The animation I was up-resing needed that badly for HD and one live action interview from 1991, the subject was wearing a horizontally striped shirt which neither Neat or Resolve could stop pulsating. Unfortunately it's either on or off in FCPX, no adjustments like in Resolve.
After rendering different test combos I made the judgment that using the new FCPX noise reducer with the FCPX deinterlace option was the best choice for the animation even though I lost a little clarity over the Resolve result. The live action is a long term project and a final choice will be down the line. I might run footage where the interlacing isn't a problem thru Resolve and the rest in FCPX, a decision for later.

New with the 10.4.4 update to Final Cut Pro X is a Noise Reduction filter. This is specifically designed to quickly reduce video noise – and the results can be quite stunning.

Video noise is a common problem in video clips shot in low light or with small sensors, such as cell phones or action cameras like the GoPro. The problem is that, from a software point of view, it is very hard to tell the difference between noise and texture. Your eye can spot it immediately; but, software? Not so much.
Here’s a sample image. Notice all the grain (called “noise”) in the image. You can see it especially clearly in the sky, the side of the red car and the darker parts of the pavement.
NOTE: The ideal solution is to shoot with more light – or a larger sensor – or, um, a better lens. But that helps you not at all once you are in the editing room, trying to salvage a shot.
Edit the clip you want to fix into the Timeline.
Go to Effects Browser > Basics and drag the Noise Reduction effect onto the clip you want to fix. (Shortcut: Double-click the effect to instantly apply it to all selected timeline clips.)
Adjust the Amount menu to dial out the amount of noise you want to remove. Your settings will vary based upon the amount of noise in the image and how much you want to remove.
NOTE: Many times, reducing video noise decreases sharpness in the image. To add sharpness back, adjust the Sharpness menu. In general, apply the least amount of sharpness to minimize edges starting to “vibrate.” What sharpness does is emphasize edges. When it comes to sharpness, too much is not a good thing.
Here’s a before (on the left) and after (on the right) of the same scene with Noise Reduction applied.

Here’s a detail from the same image. Yes, edge detail and sharpness is diminished, that’s inherent in the process. But, the overall image looks a whole lot better with much of the noise removed.
League of legends counters. If you’re applying multiple clip effects to the clip, Apple’s Help Files suggest that you add Noise Reduction as the first effect (so that it appears at the top of the Effects list), or rearrange the order of processing by dragging the Noise Reduction effect to the top of the list. This ensures the best performance and results.
