    Sometimes I play with the exposure of dark footage in FCP X, and then apply Neat Video. But from what it shows me on screen and what I’ve read about it, it seems like it affects noise of the raw footage but doesnt adjust for my changes. Am I right about that? Is that a reason to perhaps use FCP X’s own internal noise reduction? Does it work differently (assuming my intuition is right)?

    What Neat Video works on, depends on where you put it in the effects chain. so if you make your colour correction changes pre Neat Video then it’s working with whatever you’ve done to the image so far. There’s no way (that I’m aware of) for any plugin to bypass the other plugins that came before it and just access the unadjusted image.

    Hi Jeff.

    I read your answers and I am very grateful for sharing your knowledge.
    Sorry, I do not know how to use this forum. Allow me to put a doubt here: I recently purchased a Sony DSR 45 used, but in perfect condition, to capture some mini dv tapes for a job. I do not know why I can not see in the display some images that were recorded in high definition 1080p. My question is if there is any setting in DSR 45 so I can capture the tapes? Note: Some tapes can read be problem. Thank you very much.

    From memory, and its been a very long time, The DSR 45 is SD only so if you have any 1080 tapes (which I assume are HDV) it won’t be able to play them.
