FYI, AVIDEMUX has a nice HQ 3D spatial and teporal noise cleaner... I just started to experiment with this, and really cleans up the image very well (without noticeable degradation in sharpness).
Can be useful for the HD version as well (better compressibility).
Orderd mine Dec. 12, still waiting...
My compliments for this thread!
