In StarTools, your signal is processed (read and written) in a time-fluid way, by means of an ever changing equation for every pixel. Being able to change the past for a better future not only gives you amazing new functionality, changing the past with knowledge of the future also means a much cleaner signal. Tracking always knows how to accurately estimate the noise component in your signal, no matter how heavily modified. Unnecessary subjectivity, sub-optimal sequences and overcooking are - literally - taken out of the equation, yielding vastly better results in less time.
The latter settled SNR-measurements can than be taken into account by the Regularization algorithm to yield the most appropriate results for your image.

You are forgiven if, at first glance, you get the impression StarTools offers only the basics.
You can convert everything you see to a format you find convenient. Give it a try!
