I'd like to conduct my workflow using DPP to first convert the RAW files into TIFF images, then importing those on Lightroom and continue from there on. Just because I love how Lightroom works, and have the set of Lightroom plugins from Nik Software ( but could not afford the Photoshop/Lightroom Combo yet, so, I need to start the process from within Lightroom ) which I use with some frequency. But, I prefer the raw conversion from DPP. In some situations, DPP handles shadows and shaded areas better than lightroom. But converting a whole photoshoot into TIFF16 just to work on the selected few images, creates a jump on how much storage is used on my HD and later, on Backup, that I just cannot justify. I'd rather do a pre-selection using a rating system on Lightroom, and then convert only the selected ones using DPP. Problem is, DPP and Adobe use a different way of storing the rating.
Is there any way to integrate both, so that from within DPP I can see which ones were selected from within Lightroom/Bridge?
