What are the pros and cons of the 8 available denoisers?
Which of them is the best choice for which purpose?
Are there any recommendations?
I did try a few of them (but not all) and found that atadenoise is good 
for high-ISO videos of the night sky. This testing is very time 
consuming because most denoisers have several parameters that must also 
be optimized.
