I use the Blur Filter in "The Color FX Room" of Color, don't overdo it just a little is what you need. Pay close attention to a noisy area as you change intensity of effect.

It is also great for doing subtle changes in color. Just spend some time in the FX section and play with all the controls.

For smoothing out harsh skin tones, you can select just that color and blur that. See attached diagram from Color.

A really good Monitor is crucial to see what the true result the will be.

Just created a bluray disk from the 5DMKII... it looks great and plays great on my
OPPO bluray player and my PS3...

Here is the work flow I used...

1) ingest 5DII footage to computer by "clip and paste" from CF card reader
2) Convert footage to Cineform intermediate via HD link (converts footage to 29.97 and
fixes color issues with the original 5DII footage)
3) bring into Premiere Pro with Cineform preset " Prospect HD 1920x1080 30P "
The preset lets the footage on the timeline not require a render this way.
4) Do all the edits at this time...
5) Export the Premier timeline using the media encoder "mpeg-2 blu-ray " preset.
Quality set to "5", this transforms the footage to 23.97 for blu-ray media..
Make sure the preset is set for 1920x1080 on output...
6) The file gets saved to the hard drive with a file extention of " M2V "
7) ingest the conformed footage into HDVit Pro HD and create blu-ray disk...
8) very fast once you get the footage to HDVit Pro...
9) the output from HDVit Pro HD is great.. very nice features, titles, subtitles and lots more
easy to use... Roxio has a great video tutorial.. just watch it and you can create
a great blu-ray disk in less than an hour at the most...

If you want to see the DVDit tutorial click on " watch the flash demo " in the middle of the
screen here... Roxio DVDit Pro HD - DVD Authoring ? Overview

I'm sure you can do the same thing with Adobe Encore... I just don't have my head around that workflow and so I don't use it....

Same here.
Exported a prores sequence from fcp.
Encoded in Toast 10 + HD plugin (mpg4 avc blu-ray compliant, 1080p30).
Burned sequence onto a cheap dvd-r.
Played on a ps3 + Pioneer 1080p lcd tv (50hz country, but tv showed 30p w/o problem!).
Smooth and high detail video
