Main Settings Global

  • Sharpness

- The higher value the sharper the image.

  • Spatial Denoise (Spatial Noise Reduction)

- The smaller the value, the softer the image, it loses structure in color and light.

  • Denoise Luma 2 (Light Noise Reduction)

- Higher values less grain in light, bringing a little more sharpness in details, but with less structure, less depth in relief.

  • Noise Reduction

- The higher the value, the more noise, but more sharpness is obtained, very low values make the image Soft without structure and painted.

  • Dynamic Noise Reduction

- Very similar to conventional Noise Reduction.

  • Noise Aberration

- The higher the value, the less aberrations found in the noises, the difference is very subtle in low-light, I didn't notice notable gains in sharpness or structure.

  • Chroma Denoise (Chromatic Noise Reduction)

- The higher the value, the harsher the color noise. Very high reductions can cause blurring and blurring, confusing element depth lines with shadows.

  • Luma Denoise (Light Noise Reduction)

- I couldn't identify any difference in the tested scenario, smaller values tend to have a more aggressive noise reduction. More testing is needed.

  • Luma Noise (Light Noise)

- The lower the value, it causes greening at the edges of the photo, especially in dark areas

  • Chroma Micro

- Minimum or smaller values cause color leakage in some situations, I recommend values above the default, or no change.

  • Saturation

- Controls color saturation with a higher concentration on light and shadows, higher values more saturation. Does not reset color from primary color photos.

  • Saturation 2

- It has a greater impact on the overall color of the image, even increasing the vibrancy of colors. Ideal to use in conjunction with Saturation 1.

  • ISO (ISO and light sensitivity of the sensor)

- I don't advise messing with iso, as it varies a lot from scene to scene, low values tend to make the photo dark. However high values do not increase the brightness of the photo. Because the iso works to the limit of automatic lighting and not manual.


Fine Tunning Sharpen

  • Sharp Radius Small
  • Sharp Radius Medium
  • Sharp Ouline Radius
  • Sharp smooth

The only functions that change the structure of the image are very light adjustment so as not to completely spoil the structure of the photo.


Exposure Settings

  • HDR Up (HDR Increase)

The higher the value, the darker the image.

  • Exposure New

Controls the highlights, the lower the value the stronger the highlights get.

  • Exposure New 2

Also control highlights, probably in support of Exposure 1, as white has a stronger burst. Tool similar to the saturation ones.

  • Under Exposure

The higher the value, the brightness level drops, respecting the shadows more, interesting to use in night XMLs.

  • Under Exposure 1 and 2 (Low Exposure 1 and 2)

Lightly controls highlights by decreasing exposure and making shadows darker. Minimum difference level. Fine adjustment. The smaller the value, the darker. Used in conjunction with Under Exposure Matrix, they have a stronger effect.

  • Exposure Darker 1 and 2 (Dark Exposure)

Dramatically reduces highlights at high values. Interesting for nightly XMLs, it should be used together.

  • Darken Light

Lower values darken the photo drastically, can be used as contrast.

  • Expo Map Lut

Higher values darken the photos.


Spatial Settings

  • Spatial N2
  • Spatial Sub 1
  • Spatial Sub 2

Noise reduction, the lower the value, the less noise in the image.


Noise Settings

  • Noise Suppression

Noise reduction the higher the value, the more aggressive the reduction, fine-tuning.

  • Lut Noise 1 and 2

The lower the value, the more aggressive reduction in low-level, dark areas.

  • Noise Model Channels
  • Active Noise Models
  • Noise Model Blocker

Working together, NMC controls the channels, ANM, enable or disable, NMB block or grant the noise shaper. Must be used in conjunction with Lens Settings Noise Modeler. Very fine tuning that requires full knowledge.


Grid Settings

  • Grid 1 and 2

They work together in low relief and high positive. Theoretically fix Dots on weaker sensors. It needs testing and fine tuning.


Sabre Settings

  • Sabre 1 and 2

Sabre and the SuperResZoom method, High Resolution Zoom. In this tool, the smaller the value, the more sharpness there is, good for circling letters and numbers with zoom applied, it doesn't cause impact without zoom. Probably sensor and processor must be compatible with Sabre.

  • Sabre Noise

Higher values cause pink spots in highlights. Chromatic Aberrations?


Processing Settings

  • Noise Processing
  • Noise Processing 2

3 noise processing values, needs further testing but directly influences noise reduction. Noise Processing 2 enables or disables NP1. The other Shasta and Merge tools could not identify any difference in the tested scenario.


Light and Shadow Settings

  • Dehaze (Mist Removal)

The smaller the value, the less contrast tends to make the image more hazy.

  • Blackness

Higher values darken the photos. It influences exposure, not black levels.

  • Clarity

Night scenes did not notice a difference.

  • Contrast 1

Higher values make photos lighter, but excessive values cause light blur in dark areas. Lower values decrease photo clarity.

  • Contrast 2

It works on the vibrancy of colors, higher values result in a higher color contrast. More vibrant colors, lower values, more washed colors

  • Contrast 3

Controls lighting contrast, lower values lighten the photo and flatter, higher values cause stronger black levels.

  • Contrast 4

Changes the lights at the structural level in the photo, high values force a strange structure in the image. It is not a commonly used tool.

  • Contrast 5

Controls color, vibration, high values cause extremely vibrant colors, in general it should be a saturation control, not a contrast.

  • Brightness

Controls the highlights in a subtle way. Higher values result in smaller, very subtle highlights.


Noise Smoothing Settings

  • Temporal Radius

The higher the value, the less artifacts in the photo. Completely removes noise. Most powerful noise reduction tool.

  • Denoise thunderstorm

I couldn't identify the change in the photo. It probably works in conjunction with another tool. Radius Maybe.

  • Smoothness

Controls smoothness. Higher values reduce the structure of sharpening the photos. Negative values, I didn't identify any difference

  • Chroma Noise Smoothing
  • Spatial Coef Smoothin

I didn't see any difference, they probably work together with Temporal Denoise and Radius Temporal.
