actually merge to HDR PRO is very very good you set it to 32bit and you then use ACR/Lighroom to edit it with a huge DR, now if LR does this all in LR and better it will be great
I don't deny it's useful, and I've converted some tripod hdr into floating point dng to use with LR5's high dr editing. It's just that as existing tools do just fine, it's nothing to get excited about for me...
... UNLESS: The big question is if LR6's pano/hdr tools will break the raw workflow like external tools do. If Adobe manages to do stitching and hdr merging/fusing with "layers" of their acr'ed raw files you can still edit individually, that'd be great.
IMG_0001 was cleverly joking, you, privatebydesign, are simply rude.
Good ol' pdb might be very direct at times, but he's also very helpful. I guess there's a lot of different approaches to what is polite and what's not, and in this case the paper bag analogy made me laugh :-)
problem with the PS route is the massive TIFF files, maybe the built in LR HDR will not create any files other the preview? that alone would be nice, same with panoramas.
