It's actually been released to those who prepaid, as of this morning. I gotta say, that's a HELL of an HDR engine they have going. And the whole organization of it is seamless and intuitive. This is an HDR Processor that'll work very, very well for those who "don't like HDR", for which I say "Bravo"!
Yes, I'm playing with the 2 week trial right now. I didn't buy the prerelease because the $10 savings wasn't worth the hassle of asking for my money back if I didn't like it--and the bonuses didn't seem worth anything.
Looks very nice, I might add, but I've only tried it so far on a couple of images.
Unfortunately, the integration with LR -- at least how it's working for me -- leaves a lot to be desired.
You can get it to install a LR plugin, but to do HDR, LR has to create copies of the three or more pics you're combining, and then there's no "Save" in Aurora to save it back to the LR filmstrip. Then you have to delete the copies it made.
Also, the ghost removal and alignment, are subar, especially compared to LR.
