Did you see the insignificant amount of detail that was removed, nothing you would notice unless staring at still picks. If that person did not even bring up the thread with still picks, which was even hard to notice in still pictures, alot of you would not have even noticed. I can say I love a clean picture. And I will always tweak my video to improve the quality. Yes to much tweaking is never good, but a little bit can really help the picture.
And even though you speak for avs forum, alot of us in video processing area have done this for years.
Silicon optix realta, and dvdo has unreal noise reduction, cadence detection, deinterlacing with very little that improves any picture.
I honestly think some of you are avs purisits, but some of you are new and unfamiliar with how important and how good post processing can be and have never looked at the video processing forum.
You just hear post processing and think someone tainted your film and become offended.
