Lightroom Ecosystem: Sensei Noise reduction feature request

IMO you know what Adobe needs next to attract customers? An AI NR option. NR Sensei. Keep the traditional method for fast developing. Out in forum land that is one of top gripes about LR and a reason to use a competitor. Tired of the export wait times using DXO and 3rd party AI software I have tried. Even if it takes a little more time it is under one roof.

How would you like the new Sensei NR work?

Like DxO PRIME noise reduction. For the last 10 years or so, they have been the undisputed king of noise reduction which they selectively apply (automatically) to parts of the image almost never resulting in a plastic look. It gives your camera at least 1 more effective stop (e.g. it pushes APS-C into FF territory, MFT into APS-C) Also: http://www.gpurendering.com/technology/nvidiaAiForImageNoiseReduction.html This type of benefit is what you would expect from Adobe's Sensei technology.

I am surprised how little progress Adobe is making in core image processing over the last few years. A lot of nice features are being added but almost none give me a better image processing result out of the box after an import. If you look at Adobe RAW processing, it is the "mushiest" between Capture One and DxO PhotoLab would both get much cleaner, pleasant looking images by default without messing with sliders. In general, DxO PhotoLab is like getting a free camera upgrade. My preferred way is to process there and then move to another application with the cleanest possible TIF file.

I fully support this feature request. I'm using the trial of Topaz Denoise AI and the results are (mostly) amazing! But they don't offer batch processing and the whole process of exporting and re-importing is cumbersome.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled noise reduction.

Enhancement for noise reduction.

recommend development in noise Reduction features in LR Classic.
there are other outlets offering superior features for reducing Noise Reduction and would like this feature in LR to be enhanced. 
This especially for people like myself that photograph birds, so the shutter speed being used is high and therefore the ISO is high and creates a lot of Noise. 
Attention to be focused on this area rather than adding new features.

thank you

Now DXO has come out with PL4 that offers DeepPrime which apparently better than Prime. You are adding good useful improvements but again it would be nice not to have pay Topaz for Denoise AI or another company every year. That money could go towards Adobe products. Keep the current NR method for speed and add a Sensei NR option that challenges your competitors.
