On 24/11/12, I sat with an editor and tried out some Grain Removal Software on a piece of test footage (that I do not own). The picture on the left of the red line features grain and the picture on the right of the red line has gone through the grain removal process. You can clearly see the amazing effects this software has had on the removal of grain in this image. I feel that this is an excellent technical skill to possess for the future as it can have great results. I will not be wanting to use this software on the footage for my 5 – 7 minute film Convictions, however, as I feel that a little grain in the image adds a lot to the atmosphere and tone of the scenes inside the hotel room.
