You're either using it wrong, or you're using it on images that don't have
significant noise or grain. Unfortunately, no one can give you the settings,
because the settings have to be extracted from the images themselves. You
have to select solid areas that have noise, and measure the noise
characteristics, and do so separately for darks, lights, and midtones (if
they exist in the image). And no, the file format doesn't matter.
