plugin to reduce grain in After Effects

Post by otto »

I have a clip that I've had to boost - this has also caused a huge amount of grain. I'm having trouble getting rid of this grain with any of the plugins I have....any suggestions??

The "Smart Blur" plugin included with After Effects 5 is quite nice to reduce grain. But you have to do some experimenting with the sliders to get a satisfying result. The same plugin is also available in Photoshop.

Otherwise try to overlay the grainy layer with a duplicate layer that is partly transparent and has a a slight Blur or Median effects applied to it.
