Workflow: When do you apply noise reduction?

I have only used noise reduction in video a handful of times. I own the Denoiser II plug in for Premiere CC. Just curious as to how people arrange their workflow to incorporate it. Do you apply then re-render clips, then edit, then color, or edit, then color, then de-noise? Or something else entirely?

I use in-camera noise-reduction when I have to hand my footage over to somebody else, and they want a quick turn around.

Normally I edit at full resolution ( 4K now ), then once the edit is locked down, I apply a noise reduction pass. ( NR is so time consuming that you only want to use it for the footage in your final edit )

Do you apply it to each individual clip? Is there a faster way than laying it on one by one? I edit in Premiere. Even if you Past Atrributes for the NR you have to tweak settings on each clip correct? Is this they only way? Is there a more efficient way?

I use the Pro version of NeatVideo where you can create NR profiles for specific camera settings, so if you always shoot with a limited number of settings ( i.e. 400 ISO : Cine D, 0, -5, -5, -5, 0. Shadows and Highlights 0, 0, Master Pedestal 0 ) you can create a matching NeatVideo NR profiles, which makes it easier to apply NR to your edit provided you can remember how you show each scene.

Otherwise you can do the same thing to your original footage before editing, it just takes a really long time if you shot a lot of footage.
