32-bit HDR compatibility

this is a feature that i use from time to time, and i would love for ON1 to include a streamlined way to create a 32-bit “super RAW” file out of 3 or more RAW files, that would then be editable via a “develop” module. I currently use adobe bridge + Photoshop to combine files with “merge to HDR”, and then edit the final product in Adobe Camera RAW to create a much more natural image than you get with traditional “HDR” processes.

    Not a priority but I guess could be useful to some, from time to time. Hard to replace Photoshop and have one program do it all, I would rather have a rock solid / quality basic developer app that I use for 95% of my work and I don’t mind occasionally using Photoshop from time to time on special photos.

      oh i don’t mind using photoshop either. and for 32-bit, photoshop HAS to be a part of the process. in ACR/LR you “send” these files to photoshop for processing. Thats all I’m asking for. i don’t want an all-in-one editing program, but would like for this to replace ACR + Bridge for me. And if it can’t at least combine and export to PS using their RAW converter, then i wouldn’t ever use it.

    This is a very valuable feature so that I can replace Lightroom and my various plug-ins with your new raw processor.

    Yes HDR processing that produces a hdr Raw file which then can be processed in Develop/

    Agree. I use 3 or 5 pictures with typical +-1 EV per picture a lot. LR and PS does a great job here. And so should ON1 RAW:

    I would love this as well as the ability to create a batch process that specifies how many photos in a folder need to be included in the brackets. For example I have a folder with 300 images that I bracketed 3 hdr shots per scene I can say batch every 3 photos into a 32bit HDR files and the end result would be 100 hdr files.

    Being able to blend the exposures of two or more photos into a realistic 32 bit image would be a agréât advantage. The key is “realistic”.
