Well, Pixmantra custom made each profile for the 1D MarkIII sensor, so while you can try to use with other cameras, the results will not be optimum.

If anybody wants to make custom profiles for their cameras and try to reverse engineer the action, that would be cool. I'm not exactly sure what method Pixmantra used for his custom sensor profiles though.

Thankyou, I was wondering about the hardware and software differences. No reverse work from me, but I certainly appreciate the abilities of those who work on projects like this, and even more appreciate their willingness to help others.

AFAIK this only works on Windows, but you are free to try.

You tried converting to mac? It probably didn't apply any noise reduction at all because the action has to point to specific folders on a windows system.
This is one (of a few) reasons I won't buy a mac. I guess you could always run Photoshop in bootcamp or some other windows emulator maybe?

My guess is that it could recreate the action set for a Mac but it will take you a little time.

To see what steps the action contains you can highlight the Action set you want to save, then hold down Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Command+Option (Mac) while selecting Save Actions from the actions menu. This gives you text file containing all the commands and settings contained in the action set. But, and it's a big but, you can't import this txt file back into a action again.

/Rant
does anyone else think this system for actions is stuck 10-15 years back. I mean come one surely they can do better than this. Yes, I know I can run/edit a script but the action pallet is handier.

Here is another example.

185mm, F2.8, 1/100s, ISO3200 underexposed by 2/3 stop and recovered and lots of sharpening (more than I normally use).
Notice the nice film like grain.

Because it was underexposed, that's more like ISO5000 or so.

I am amazed that it doesn't crush the details.
I really have to try this. I downloaded the file so I just need to make some time and check it out!

Nicksan, that is the genius that is/was Pixmantra. He designed the action not to remove all noise, but to reduce it, saving critical detail, and leaving behind a slight grain. The look is very reminiscent to what I've seen from the D700 and D3.
