Yes - As HDR seems to be the only one feature that is usefull ( image Process 2012 still unchanged ???? )
a bit pity that batch ability seems to be unsupported .
Also I thought stacking could be a part of this batch processing - but of course that would need
improvement of most useless stacking method of them all - auto stack " by capture time " ( it looks good on presentations only )
I have ever never had any luck to get proper bracket stacking with this one .
It should work as it works in HDR programs like Photomatix -
Stack 3 consequent selected images at time ( or 5 or 7 ) .
And batch HDR - PLEASE !
Regarding Shortcuts . Tooltip shows ( on mac ) Shift H
but it is ctrl H that gets HDR dialog.
Actually I do a ton of HDR with Enfuse and the auto stacking feature works great. The secret is timing your shots correctly so it doesn't get stacked incorrectly. For me, I use a 10 sec count down shutter to separate each shot. If the subject is bright enough, I can do a 15 sec auto stack and everything is fine. If the subject is dark, then you would have to increase the auto stack time to a higher value along with the corresponding count down shutter. You could also go wait a bit between shots if a longer exposure is required. Its actually quite simple to get it to work.
Anyways, I am super disappointed with the fact that they did not do a batch mode for this HDR feature. Seems like a very simple detail.

Yes, I have also been using Enfuse for years, and while I'm not too happy either with auto-stacking, I found the way Enfuse batch mode is working quite useful.
After trying out Lightroom CC HDR feature, I consider that it gives better results thane Enfuse, at least for what I'm doing.
Add a batch mode similar to what Enfuse does and you have the perfect winning combination!
Yes LR6 HDR is nice ( but more HDRish look then Enfuse )
I came home with 300 images bracketed ( panorama projekt for a customer ) today
Its clear for me now that new LR is made for Adobe enthusiast Amateur Photographers in mind - not Pros ...
( plenty of Adobe emplyees are photo amateurs ) that is the reason they completely omit Batch need for HDR.
HDR processing of 300 + images is a horror .
( for example if I filter images by label - this filtering goes off the second I start HDR processing ... )
So i went back to Photomatix workflow .
