Photon Pro is a video noise reduction Plug-In for Final Cut Pro X

Photon Pro uses a sophisticated algorithm to remove sensor readout noise and photon shot noise from digital movie recordings.
Eliminate the ugly 'film grain' and make your clips look great!

- An incompatibility issue has been reported with the Mac Mini 2011 and the Radeon 6630 HD graphic card.
- Make sure you select 'create optimized media' when importing a clip otherwise the program will be forced to use software-only rendering which is very slow.

Inspired by the leading photographic editing applications, Photon Pro allows you to do interactive editing with ease and speed.

The plug in enables you to set different level of correction for the luminance and the chrominance channels.
Both spatial and temporal denoising are supported, as well as mixed-mode spatial and temporal.

Photon Pro has been designed to preserve edge sharpness while removing noise.
If you intend to use a sharpening filter in your effects chain, make sure that such filter is applied downstream from (after) the noise reduction filter.

Photon Pro will take full advantage of the new Mac Pro (late 2013) dual GPU architecture.
A recent and fast OpenCL 1.2 compatible graphic card is highly recommended to achieve the best performance.

Limited time intro price.

Amazing Plug-In! I would say the best Noise Eliminator Out there!

Yes it’s slow! but it does the job amazingly! A fast computer? No Problem! I don’t think their is any other Noise Plug-In out there that eliminates video noise without touching your sharpness on all your edges. Just Amazing!!! And for the $ is worth, oh man, Can’t beat it!!!

Does not work on a 2010 Macbook Pro

This plugin sort of work on a single clip. But it will slow down the computer so much that you can’t work anymore at all. My MacBook Pro 2010 has a SSD and 8 Gb RAM. Worst of all, the plugin CANNOT be refunded. So do not buy if your computer is older than 2015.
