I have a 400.000 png file sequence that takes 2 seconds to import in Adobe Premiere and more than HALF AN HOUR in Video Enhance AI…
I think the problem has to do with in Adobe Premiere you just select the first frame and activate a “Image Sequence” checkbox, while in Topaz Video Enhance AI you have to select all the 400.000 files in the Open dialog and then click ‘Open’: https://i.imgur.com/CLyHJkr.png
And it’s not about Premiere being expensive and developed by Adobe, but how poorly Topaz’s VEAI handles sequence loading.
I could put VirtualDUB, which is free and developed by just 1 person, as an example of loading an image sequence.
It takes 5 seconds for the same sequence: https://i.imgur.com/VyJxVNz.png
