The BCC Noise Reduction filter smooths out noise by comparing each pixel with the pixels in it’s immediate temporal and spatial neighborhood. For each pixel, it blends in pixels that are close (in color) to the pixel, while ignoring pixels that are distant in color. This allows us to smooth out the noise without losing detail.
This filter is designed to remove noise from camera images, and will not work properly unless the input is fully opaque.
The built in PixelChooser with integrated mocha planar tracking allows for greater control over which areas of the image the filter should affect.
