The Canon EOS VR Utility has many useful functions, but it can take time and effort to try them out and decide whether they are useful for your VR videos. In this short guide, we will provide test video samples that look at the denoise and sharpen tools. 

If the Canon EOS VR Utility is part of your workflow and you're wondering whether or not to use denoise and sharpen effects, then this footage may help you make up your mind. 

Denoising with the Canon EOS VR Utility

Watch this short video (20 secs) to see what happens when using the following denoise values: 1, 2, 3.

You will see that values 1 and 2 offer minimal difference, while using value 3 adds some blur and reduces details. Whether this is desirable for your VR content depends on the kind of footage you are filming and how you would like it to appear to the end user. 

Sharpening with the Canon EOS VR Utility

Watch this short video (22 secs) to see what happens with sharpening values ranging from 1 all the way up to 10.

In our opinion, the middle range is the sweet spot. The closer you get to 10, the more the footage looks unnatural and over-sharp. However, your needs may vary depending on your type of content.
