Jpgs on timeline = no waveform info

Probably been answered a million times, I have a doc with like 100 pictures tiffs and jpgs, but the scopes show no info. I'm assuming this is a limitation but maybe I'm missing something.. Mark Foerst

This also depends on where this will be shown as some broadcasters distributors might have their own specs on how to deal with 4:3 footage. Some might want to stretch it whereas others might want to l

First off, selecting the first image should trigger the image sequence option. I could imagine that the files might have too high of a bitrate for Premiere, which is limited to 16bpc.

Deflicker vs Flicker AE plugins
Hello, I have some DJI drone footage in 4K that is quite noisy probably due to a thin codec. Also flashing/pulsing effect in the shadows
Deflicker and Flicker are two plug ins. Any Opinions here?
Also looking for recommendations on noise removal. I've used neat video in the past and got good results.
Thanking you in advance

PS: Does dropping an 8bit codec material into a 10 bit comp - then treating it - help in any way?
