Scratch and Dust Removal / Restoration - 35mm Scan

0 Replies, 3635 Views

I've been trying several methods to do this and obviously ones with the best results are the most labor intensive, either spot healing/clone stamp in Photoshop, running the footage through Neat Video (or Photoshop's Dust and Scratch filter) and blending the result with the original to avoid the false positives, or a combination of all of these. 

I'm curious what other methods and software can be used to make this process quicker or more automated while still achieving a decent result and retaining film grain. I've found Neat Video is pretty good for more static scenes with not a lot going on but the Dust filter really destroys more complex images with things like rain, smoke, trees, fast motion, etc.
