Since there is a lot of discussion regarding noise and low light with the CG6 or CG65, I posted some samples of low light ISO with and without the camerabright LED in the camerabright thread but there is also another way to get pretty good results from your low light noisy footage by using the Neat Video software. It works in VirtualDub and does a 'neat' job of removing noise and generally improving the image quality as shown below. Well worth a look. Ulead Videostudio 11 has a new de-Snow filter that removes noise also but its nowhere near as good as Neat Video.

That's great! I've got a few questions on what you used to achieve this:

1) How much RAM do you have
2) What processor did your system contain
3) For one minute of video at 640 x 480 (or other,) how much time does it take to get the results from NeatVideo?

I have a dual core processor 1.6Ghz and 2Gig of ram, the time is takes to encode is quite fast, roughly about3-5 mins for a 1 min clip or thereabouts. Believe me it does not take long and for the results you get its well worth it.

Nice. There is also a new open source "denoiser" (also doesinterpolation and inpainting) called GREYCStoration, I haven't come across plugins for it for video processing (like VirtualDub), but it looks promising (check out the demonstration page, the inpainting feature is amazing).

Pretty good Caelum but that application is only for images and not video, Neat Image does the same thing but Neat Video processes video and as you can see you get fantastic results. You can download a trial, well worth a look.

For any of you that have Pinnical 9 , this filter set is good and free too.

I mainly use TMPGEne 3.0 which has a good set of noise filters and RGB adjustments but is not free.

I have V 3.0 not the current 4.0

The old verson is free and is a good MPEG encoder and has some filters. (I forget which ones.)
