Denoise OFX plugin coming?

I recently filmed a short in way too low light and the footage is looking mighty noisy. I have been doing the colour correction on DaVinci and I would so have loved to use Hitfilm's denoise effect to help with some of the shadows I had to lift, but I could not see it. I guess that that is because denoise is a hitfilm exclusive and not an OFX plugin.

Are there intentions to port it?

    Unfortunately the denoise effect is incompatible with all our current hosts, for technical reasons which I don't have to hand (but am reliably informed by one of our QA guys). I suspect denoise's unique way of analysing the frame and surrounding frames runs into issues when operating via OpenFX in hosts, which will always be a slightly more restrictive environment than inside HitFilm 3 Pro itself.

    Sorry about that. :/

    How about denoise in Hitfilm and export Open EXR for Resolve?

    Thank you Simon and Triem.

    I need to start considering the EXR workflow. This time I just left HitFilm and denoising for the last step and the results were acceptable (specially considering the mess that the footage was).
