Will ON1’s NoNoise AI Steal the Crown from Topaz DeNoise AI? Quite Possibly.
(Will On1's NoNoise AI Steal the Crown from Topaz DeNoise AI? Quite Possibly. | Fstoppers)
is a comparison review cited by ON1 in an email advert. I have read the review, and the results in terms of the ON1 application do not correspond to my experience – the application I tried (under purchased license, not “trial”) seemed far more “buggy” than that described in the article. I also note that DeepPRIME did not seem to have been comparison evaluated.
The review reads like an advert: (Excerpt) Where On1 NoNoise has the edge over Topaz is its ability to duplicate layers within the program, which includes blending modes, and then mask the layers using its industry-leading “Perfect Brush." (End excerpt) “Industry-leading” is a very advert statement, and certainly one with which many might take exception. The fact that the ON1 application is better than what Adobe native offers, etc, is no great surprise. As for the fact that DeepPRIME, etc, are AI based only means one is comparing the detailed AI engine (and implementation, as all of these are AI software applications on a non-quantum non-neurosynaptic “classical” computer) and the training set upon which the AI “learned”. If one happens to have an image that is “close” to one in the training set, all the better. At the moment, DxO due to the DxO evaluation of lenses, etc, possibly has the most extensive training set. A query for the DxO marketing group: is DxO using similar outlets to the “review” pushed by a competitor?
