Hi there, Here is my thought on this. Transcoding a media (image/video) from a highly compressed codec (like h.264 or jpeg) to a less compressed codec like (Prores or Tiff) may result in better performance in some cases. This is because the compressed codecs usually require more processing power for the encoding and decoding process. However, transcoding the media won't improve the image quality any more than the original file. Hope it helps. Thanks, Sumeet

It's not a good idea to edit a jpg file, as it is a "lossy" format - i.e. each time you save it the quality is reduced.

Thank you that answers my question if the jpeg can become a higher quality file and your saying no. 

 

Topaz offers a jpg to raw stand alone option that doen't work.

 

Does anybody have any ideas on improving a jpeg to make it edit worthy or am i barking up the wrong tree.

 

Thank you

I think Sumeet pretty much answered your questions. It depends on the source material. That's why I typically ask for the original source file. If it's graphics, then I ask for the original vector artwork (typically Illustrator). If it's a photo, then I ask if the shooter happened to take the picture in a raw format. But unfortunately, sometimes all you get is a low-quality jpeg, and you just have work with what you got.

I  can say that there have been times the conversion seemed to work, but not everytime.

 

 

Thank you

it was good information that made sence to my experience 

 

indeed there were some images that seemed to benifit but not all

 

using a tiff was an intellegent idea i wouldn't have thought of myself

 

Jpg arn't fun to edit 

 

encodding jpg to tiff maybe wishfull thinking in my head but i do it anyway because i have to try 

 

it's a gray area and Topaz jpg to raw doen't work at all from my experience

 

media encoder seems to offer a degree of edit better than jpg and i admit its a degree
