Joe’s Noise Reducer combines an interlace-savvy median filter with two-pass edge detection to reduce noise while preserving image fidelity. This filter is tuned for video noise, and is best previewed on an external video monitor.

One consequence of median-based noise reduction is a loss of some fine detail. Usually this appears as a slight diffusion effect and is most apparent on still images. For removing noise from a mostly static clips, use Joe’s Multi-Frame Blender.

Occasionally applying this filter to the chroma channels will cause a slight greenish color shift. To avoid this, apply noise reduction only to the Luma channel.
