Neat Video has just released an update for its famous denoiser plugin: Neat Video 5.5. This free update includes support for macOS 12 Monterey operating system, GPU support for Apple Silicon, including M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max chips, and more. For Windows users, this version now supports Windows 11 and adds support for AMD Navi 23 GPUs. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Neat Video is a third-party noise reduction plugin compatible with most NLEs on the market, including Adobe Premiere Pro/After Effects, Final Cut Pro X, DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer, and so on. This plugin is amongst the best noise reduction tools you can get, and it just got even better with the latest Neat Video 5.5 update.
Neat Video 5.5 update for macOS users
Neat Video 5.5 includes numerous improvements for both macOS and Windows users. Let’s start with all the changes and modifications for Mac users:
- Neat Video now supports macOS 12 Monterey. Also, they improved support for macOS 11 Big Sur.
- The latest version adds GPU support for Apple Silicon computers, including M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max chips. If you get your hands on the latest Mac Studio with an Ultra chip, you’ll probably have to wait for the next update.
- Improvements in GUI:
- Several corrections in menus.
- Added hints in several controls.
- Added shortcut for Auto Profile with Current Frame.
- Improved support for color themes (Preferences > General)
Neat Video 5.5 also improves support for multi-monitor systems with different DPIs. In addition, they improved the installer and fixed several minor issues.
From my experience, the plugin is smoother, faster, and more stable with every new update, so I have little doubts performances will be stellar with an M1-based computer.

Windows users will benefit from all the GUI improvements listed above, several minor fixes, and a new installer. Furthermore, Neat Video 5.5 adds support for Windows 11.
