New non-professional user here, having fun playing with the many variables and trying to understand the thresholds and tipping points of certain settings.
I have found Artemis to be well suited for cleaning up noisy HD commercial films. The three primary input quality choices are: High, Medium, and Low. There seems to be an inconsistent incremental application of these adjustments (see attached - you may have to zoom-in).
‘High’ actually seems to increase the noise while ‘Medium’ results in no perceivable change. ‘Low’, however, makes a wild quantum leap, rendering a highly processed but generally pleasing result. Yes, it is somewhat ‘plasticized’, but adding some noise back in makes the final output to my liking.
Not knowing the constraints of the coding behind the scene, I was just wondering if there was a way to better implement these settings so a degree of finer control might be offered. If I am missing something I’m open to learning!
