The following is from description from its official product website:
Created from the combined knowledge and expertise of aerospace, semiconductor, image processing and feature film mastering engineers, Dark Energy changed the game. First introduced – and still available – as a professional suite, Dark Energy was originally developed for the demanding worlds of D-Cinema and HD mastering. Now, we’ve combined our strengths again and packaged Dark Energy in an affordable plug-in. Dark Energy for After Effects has two powerful modules: Anti-Matter and Matter. Manage noise. Remove grain. Match footage. Or, just win the battle over Internet codecs. Less noise means fewer bits, which equals better video with less bandwidth.
Dark Energy is your next-gen weapon against noise, and your ally for better-looking images. Own the industry’s most complete texture management plug-in. Dark Energy For After Effects.

The following FAQ is from FAQ of DarkEnergy for Plug-in website.
Version 5.5, 6.0, Creative Cloud.
DE for AE is currently tested and recommended for the Win 7 64 bit operating system.
We are a Windows-based software platform, so any Apple product that can dual boot and support an NVIDIA GPU and Windows 7 64-bit will be able to run our software. There are no plans yet for an OS X based release.
We are considering other platforms right now. Check our website/twitter/Facebook for announcements on our next product lines.
You are currently using an evaluation license. To remove the watermark, you must purchase the license, after which we will send you a license key.
All files that work with After Effects.
Your render times are limited only by your hardware and the native render times of After Effects.
This issue is due to Multiprocessing in After Effects. Due to the temporal nature of the Dark Energy plug-in, it looks at 3-5 frames before and after each frame for analysis. As a result, segmenting/multiprocessing doesn’t work. To fix this, turn multi-processing off. The GPU processing alone will give you adequate render times.
Due to the temporal nature of the plug-in, Dark Energy analyzes frames before and after while removing noise. As a result, inter-frame compression codecs such as H.264, Mpeg2 and Mp4 will not work with Dark Energy. These codecs are not frame-based. This means a video file contains sets of grouped frames that reference each other in order to produce an image. Dark Energy will, however, work with all other intra-frame codecs such as ProRes, DNXHD, Jpeg, Motion Jpeg etc.
There are any possibilities, ranging from bad hardware to an ionic storm (just kidding). Try the usual remedies:
- Reboot your computer
- Verify that you have met the HW requirements (Windows 7 x64, NVIDIA graphics card)
- Update to the latest NVIDIA drivers
- Apply all Microsoft Updates
- Try uninstalling and reinstalling the plug-in
If you are still having difficulties after all of that, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
