All,

I recently upgraded to Aperture 3 and noticed that it does a much better job with Chroma noise than previous versions.  However, I cannot find any way to modify it's treatment of chroma noise, does anyone know how to do this?

It seems like different cameras have different settings available in "RAW Tuning" in A3.

For my 5D I have the following 3 (all sliders) at the bottom of the RAW Tuning brick.

Moire
Radius
Auto-Noise

In A2 I had Moire, Radius (sliders), and "Auto Noise Compensation" (checkbox)

I agree A3 does a much better job.   I have found the following can help with Chroma Noise though..

Moire claims it reduces high frequency color information.. it does not specify whether that means sensor/image noise, or just moire in fabrics, etc..   Radius controls the frequencies that are considered.

I have found if you increase the Moire control considerably, and decrease the radius down near 1-2, you can change the handling of Chroma Noise and sometimes get an improvement.
