Any compression flicker?

Feb 24, 2018
I'm toying with the idea of upgrading my MP 1 for an MP2 Pro. My main reason is the compression flicker on my MP1 is really annoying as I need to use Neat Video noise filter on every clip, even at ISO 100. I shoot in 2.7k as the flicker is less obvious, but it's still a hassle.

Anyway, I'd like to know if the flicker is still prrsent on the MP2 Pro (not Zoom).

P.S. does the MP2 also have that annoying feature where in-built noise reduction kicks in if sharpening is set to 0 or lower? On the MP1 you need to set sharpening to 1 to disable the noise reduction.

From what most people have said, no to both. The footage appearing seems to back that up.

So the 2 biggest flaws of the MP1 have been addressed (even if its still missing lots of features the 1 had currently).

I look forward to not having to run NeatVideo on every single video.

Only true for well exposed footage. Low light video does require some temporal NR to remove flicker. But overall it is not as obvious/noticeable as with the MP.

Thanks guys. I'll find some raw MP2 footage and check it out. NeatVideo does a decent enough job, but it's annoying if you need to do some last minute adjustments post-NR as the render times are a nightmare.
4k 30 seconds clip on mine the render time goes up from about 2 mins with just Lumetri and LUT to about 25 minutes with NeatVideo so yes, i'd rather not have to use it on *every* clip!
