i am really interested in the following:

what if i want to grade in resolve 10 lite and i want to denoise with neat video in after effects..? cause the resolve lite version has no denoiser..

should i denoise before color grading?
and if yes, how should i render in after effects to keep all my options in grading with the best possible file..?

i see the problem that when denoising in after effets i also have to wb the material and loose my raw advantages in resolve, so how should i do it best?

can anybody explain.

I do it like this:

Import DNG sequences into After effects and make LOG files in ACR. Then denoise and export to Prores 444 or whatever you have access to. Do your edit and then XML to resolve and grade the prores files.

Yes you will be losing the ability to grade to DNG's directly but the ACR debayer is better than resolve's and LOG files will still give you loads of room for grading.
