Advanced rule says:

You may..
..overlay two copies of the same original file and process them differently to enhance dynamic range.'+

But can I change the exposure value two times and combine the three pictures in the software Photomatix Pro?

then use Tonemapping method in the same software and then edit it further in Photoshop??

thanks in advance.

Yes you can, as long as all your work stems from one photo (one actuation). Weird, eh?

However, in basic you can not combine more than one exposure processing, but (at least for now) you can process one RAW original in Photomatix as HDR and create a tiff or so to further process in PS.

Very interesting idea...

Ok..
here is my process..

Open raw file in Lightroom

make one tiff image with the current exposure value
make one tiff image with the -1 exposure value
make one tiff image with the +1 exposure value

open all of them in photamatix and combine them to HDR
Tonemap the photo and save it as another tiff image.
then open it in PS to further process..

This is legal in Advanced Editing, Right ?

Unless I'm totally off, yes, this is legal in Advanced. Not in basic.

What you can't do is make the three images in camera (shoot 3 images at different exposure values) and then combine them in HDR.

PS - didn't notice Manic had answered already :)
