High quality noise reduction in HDTV footage

Im looking at developing a workflow for rescuing unique footage filmed in HDTV that has a significant noise problem.

The reason I say unique is because the noise reduction process will be off line and so wont be in plug in form for a long time (and hence not very convinient!).

Im looking for an uncompressed frame sequence export in tiff format (perhaps enough frames to fill a DVD in the first instance).
If anyone has such problematic footage and they fancy having a bit of fun trying the thing out then please get in touch, if it works you can keep the smoothed but still sharp footage, if it doesnt work then at least we tried!

Velvia Action

By popular request Im posting a direct link to Michael Soo’s software page.
Michael has done a good job to make a Photoshop action to replicate the look of a Velvia image (a particular kind of saturation).
For photographers used to Velvia the colour of digital capture can seem a little pale (if more accurate!). This action can also be used on film scans to perk them up a little.
For my clients I edit the action a little to set the opacity of the Velvia layer and leave the opacity control open ready to fine tune. For myself I find the blue’s go a little too cyan so I correct this by cycling the blue hue towards magenta a little.
