so far, I have been using Lightroom as a catalog application and RAW converter. Just recently though, I have come across Iridient's RAW Developer and have to say that the quality of the conversion is just amazing. The level of detail and smoothness of gradations are great. So, going forward I would like to still use Lightroom for cataloging my images, but use RAW Developer at least for converting the best images.
Is anybody using the combination of Lightroom and RAW Developer? Any tips on workflow across the 2 applications? Known problems with regards to ratings and metadata? I would love to hear from you.
