I use this denoising tool (Avisynth + MVTools) for years, and results always impressed me. Still, despite its effectiveness, it has little recognition.
Probably because there is no GUI - to setup and use you have to dig into scripts. Last month, trying to help a non-techie friend, I think I've found a [practical enough] way to use it even for newbies. Essentially, I created a few basic presets (low-mid-high and v-log) and made them work via drag-and-drop method.
Maybe it will work for your needs. Feel free to try it out and share your experience.

Key points:
- Freeware, but Windows only
- Simple to use - just drag and drop files onto the preset shortcut. Result will be stored in a separate folder along the original
- Ready to use - include presets for "Low", "Medium", "High" filtering, plus "V-log"
- Effective even against heavy grain/noise
- Supports multicore CPU threads management, NVidia GPU encoding, 10-bit 4:2:2 input
- Output video codecs: x264, NVEnc(h264,HEVC), DNxHR, Cineform, ProRes
- The audio from original video is copied into filtered clip "as is", without any processing
- Filtering and encoding can be tweaked or new presets can be added without much hassle
- For best results try to disable in-camera noise reduction (or set to lowest possible)

Bonus functions: batch conversion into intermediate and delivery formats, 1080p proxy creation, remuxing any video into .mov container, converting dolby ac3 into pcm stereo.

With Sony Vegas I have been using an add-on called "neat video". But I will also take a look at this for sure. Ty sir.

It would be interesting to see how well it stands against NeatVideo on your samples (different than mine). In my [limited] tests results are quite close.
