Want to de-noise and sharpen video before cutting it, what to export it out as?

Apr 4, 2013 10:33 PM

So I have about 90 minute worth of video from an event that I want to add a very slight bit of sharpening to and denoising in After Effects. I want to just get this all done and out of the way before I start cutting so that way when color correcting/grading I have a better idea of the final product. What i want to do is just apply the effects and then render everything out oevrnight and then reimport everything with the changes made to start cutting with. I was just wondering what the best format would be to export out to before importing back in. I'm on Windows and it's a mix of 5D DSLR and Canon C-100 footage.

    If you want to take a generation hit , increase your footage size files substantially and waste time applying fx to footage that wont make the cut..go ahead.


    Uncompressed avi is one  option.


    You could choose a lesser ( compressed) option depending on the end "intention" of the program.

    I've been editing for 30+ years.  I would do my editing first and then apply sharpening and denoising after.  Why waste time and disk space doing it before?  You have me baffled!

    I can't think of any good whys.


    The why nots would be


    1. Wasted time

    2. Possibly wasted space

    3. Possible generation loss

    4. Possibly reduced performance in PP
