Black & White grain removeal

Post by klaatu2 »

Description of problem or question:
. How to remove the grain on black & white source
Steps to reproduce the problem
. Grayscale is checked
. H.265
HandBrake version):
. 1.5.1
Operating system and version:
. Win 10


What is the best setting to remove grain from a 1080p B&W source with a lot of grain in the background.
It seems that the denoise options affect color and not B&W

Grayscale is checked, all other filters off
I have tried various denoise and sharpen settings, with no obvious solution
