I have DxO Optics Pro 8 also and like it very much. If you save the processed file to DNG you can undo the DxO changes in LR as best as LR can do. No changes are made to the raw file by DxO and other programs can not read the DxO file that contains the changes you made that I know of.
I also have LR and again think it is a good program.
I got DxO after reading Neuro's glowing praise of it and getting a trial. I got version 7, then trialled LR4 and got it since it seemed to do better than DxO 7. DxO 8 came out and it now appears to do better then LR4 most of the time so it is again my main RAW converter.
