I wish that Photomatix Pro could recognize edits made to raw images in LR or ACR, without having to first process tiff files. I've noticed significant improvement in graininess if I apply some noise reduction to the raw images before processing the HDR. This probably won't happen though because Photomatix is not an Adobe application. Still this is one of the few advantages that Photoshop's HDR Pro has over Photomatix.
Well I stand corrected. Photomatix Pro 5 does recognize edits made to raw images in Lightroom, but first you have to establish that Photomatix Pro 5 is the second external editor in the Lightroom preferences. When I updated from 4 to 5 it didn't update that preference. Although LR would export to Photomatix 5 just fine, it wasn't recognizing LR edits until I updated the external editor preferences. Yay. I'm just happy it works.
