Is HDR legal in basic editing?

I'm going to guess NO, simply because the rules for Advanced specify that you MAY : overlay two copies of the same original file and process them differently to enhance dynamic range.

The answer is no. I sort-of found out the hard way, but SC had pity on me and spared me the Pink Band of Shame.
:-)

However, tonemapping of a single file is OK, I believe. Applied, of course, to the entire image as per the Basic rules.

so wait, in basic editing i can't even use a RAW editor to export say, 3 different exposure settings of a file and then combine them using photomatix?

No, because that's effectively the use of different layers, which isn't permitted in Basic.

Doesn't sound like it as the rules say you may...

"use only Adjustment Layers (or their equivalent). An Adjustment Layer is a special type of layer containing no image data that lets you experiment with color and tonal adjustments without permanently modifying the pixels. Adjustment Layers must be applied in Normal mode."

"use RAW conversion software as long as the changes are made globally to a single file on one layer and do not create new features or effects in the process."

How about tone mapping using a single tiff(converted from a jpeg) file in photomatix?

If it's just the one pass and not multiple files, that should be fine.

How about tone-mapping a single RAW file?

Again, as long as it's just the one pass used and just one file, that's fine.
