Episode 063: More Noises in the Dark!

Download the companion file! (…if there is one…. ;-) )

Not so much progress on the noise side – I tried to reduce chroma noise with an option in UFRaw. The result is, well, see yourself in the image above (200% view).

1 – the noisy image

2 – the denoised image

3 – the denoised image with chroma noise reduction

4 – 1 and 3 combined with a mask for the edges.

I’ll explore soe more noise reduction options before I finish this image.

In the main part of this video you’ll see how to register an additional image into the already rotated and cropped  stack of layers.

  1. Could you be a bit more explicit?

    Does it make a difference which of the 4 YCbCr models is used for decomposition?
    And once decomposed, which channel(s) should be blurred? I might guess the answer is redness in this case, perhaps .. is that right? And what values of radius and max-delta have you had success with? Oor what would you recommend starting with?

    Or perhaps you can provide a link that gives further help?

  3. 3900 downloads already – but 3000 of them are from one machine in Russia. No idea if DOS or a script going wild. :-(

    The load must have been so heavy that the forum database connection broke for some time – I got a warning mail at around midnight my time.
