In addition to specifying a specific frame number to start applying the "De-Noise" feature, it would be nice to have the ability to simply request it be applied to the FINAL ITERATION when rendering.
1) On my tests, I see no difference in the quality if I start rendering right away, or wait until the final iteration. But I was able to measure a performance impact if I denoise every iteration. So it would result in improved performance if I wait as long as possible to activate the Denoise feature.
2) But... I can set both an "Iteration" limit and a "Seconds" limit on my rendering process. Suppose I wanted to render up to 1,000 iterations, and I turn on Denoise at iteration 999 or 1,000, but because I reach my time limit first, I might only render 850 iterations, so the Denoise feature does not get activated.
So if it is technically possible, that is why it would be nice and easy and convenient (and "safe") to be able to simply Denoise the final iteration, whether it is the last iteration due to a numerical count or a time limit being reached.
Although this could be applied to the Preview settings, I do not think that makes sense, because in a preview situation, you want a "good, usable" image as quickly as possible.

From the **Nvidia** documentation I've seen, it is "Denoise" without a hyphen. We should spell it the same way they do.
