Thank you for this outstanding plugin :D .
I wish for a Lightroom MetaRaw plugin in the future.

Supporting Lightroom is possible, but less convenient than in Photoshop. Lightroom does not support format plugins like Photoshop, so MetaRaw would have to convert unsupported raw files to DNG or TIFF before they can be opened in Lightroom. MetaRaw would add itself as a menu item to Lightroom, so that you could start the conversion from within Lightroom. Would that be fine with you?

Sounds like a very good solution to me!

I do not think that a Lightroom version of MetaRaw would be so interesting for many people. Many people seem to upgrade to the latest Lightroom version anyway.

However, now that MetaRaw is used by the PhotoWiz standalones, you could get e.g. the ColorStyler standalone, use it to convert your raw files to tiff and then import the tiff files into Lightroom. There is also the free Adobe DNG Converter, which you can use for the same purpose.

If Metaraw would work in Lightroom that would be great. I tried installing the free Adobe DNG converter but it never showed up in my programs possibly because I had Metaraw installed.

Unfortunately the Lightroom plugin interface is rather limited. So I do not see how to integrate MetaRaw into Lightroom.

DNG Converter is located here: c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe DNG Converter.exe
