I'm the author of LRTimelapse, the market leading software for time lapse photography.
Since over a year I'm running a feature request that would be very important for the time lapse community and already has nearly 150 votes: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/enable-jpg-conversion-for-dng-converter
Now I've seen that someone just closed this request with a senseless reason.
Could someon please check what's happened there and maybe even help to prioritize my request? Thank you!

This appears to have been a mistakenly closed item, Gunther. I will reactivate it.

@Rikk - could you forward that to someone in charge for the product development of the DNG Converter too? That would be awesome. Thank you!

Hi Gunther,

Are you using the DNG Converter's command line interface to trigger conversion?

Thanks,

- Chris

Yes, I do. In LRTimelapse I use the DNG Converter for preview creation. This allows to get developed previews to use them as reference for deflickering time lapses. Currently this only works with native RAW files, since the DNG Converter only converts RAW files.
Therefore it would be great to be able to use the DNG Converter to wrap JPGs and TIFFs into DNGs too (Adobe Lightroom already supports this). This would allow the time lapse community to work with JPGs and TIFF sequences too the same way. Check out my video tutorials to see how it currently works.
