I've read that the SDK is for export/web/metadata, so apologies for asking a question when I the answer is probably no...
What I'd like to be able to do is write a plugin that would enable me to select an image in the library, and then automatically create virtual copies, with each copy having a variation on the exposure settings, in effect creating a bracketed set, which I can then export for exposure blending.
Is this type of functionality feasible right now?
On the LR/Enfuse plugin guide it says that when batch processing LR/Enfuse can re-import the blended result image into the source image stack, which gives me hope that the SDK can do things with the Library module.
No, it's not possible to do this with the current SDK. The limitation you'll hit with what you're proposing:
I've noted these as feature requests for future SDK enhancements but I can't make any promises about when/if it might appear.
Thanks for the info Eric. I wasn't holding out much hope, but it's good to know either way!
