C4DtoA - After Effect Noice workflow

Just updated to the new Arnold 5.1 and we can't seem to figure out the workflow for the new denoiser Noice. When we import the .EXR in AE, we can't find the denoised layer or manage to export it. Are we missing something?

Thanks!

Hi! Noice it's a stand alone software, it not work inside After Effects. You can use this script to denoise one frame, I'm doing a better version that you can use with image sequences, AOVs and temporal frames.

Hmm but when I render in Cinema4D, I can see that the denoised layer is there in the picture viewer. There's no way to export that straight from C4D?

No, Noice works like Neat Video or other denoiser plug in, you will need your render first to send it to the denoiser app, to change parameters, values, etc.

You can find a driver preset for Noice here

So, the workflow would be:

Set correctly the output driver -> Do C4D Render -> send render sequence to Noice

At the moment, I don't know if SA have plans to add more controls from Noice inside the DCC apps before that you do render. I'm only learning coding with python in cmd with this 🙂

Just to clarify, there are two denoisers in Arnold 5.1.

The OptiX denoiser runs on the GPU, it's fast but not high quality. That's the Denoise option on the AOV, renders to the Picture Viewer, intended use is for the IPR.

The Arnold renderer (a.k.a. noice) is a command line tool, which offers the temporal stability and high-quality needed for final frame denoising. Not visible in the PV or the IPR, works as Carlos described (setup an EXR driver -> render -> run noice on the output).

We are planning to make the workflow smoother in a next release.
