Noise reduction in AE

In this After Effects tutorial, you'll see how Adobe evangelist Jason Levine uses Neat Video, a noise reduction filter, to clean up noise in footage.

It would have been nice to see how AE's built-in Remove Grain filter performed on the demo footage (it performs far better than a Median filter). Other options include RE:Vision Effects DE:Noise, which uses sensitive spatial filtering along with time-based optical flow methods, and Digital Anarchy Beauty Box and Revision FX SmoothKit and DE:Noise.

Neat video is by far the best noise reduction program. It's also the best sharpening tool.

I'd still like to the the tests. Do you know of any posted or published?
