I use LR only for the catalog and DAM features. Of course now I use it for digital negative conversion because of DLP. However, I use Adobe ACR/Photoshop for everything else, including final jpeg output and all printing. I use Photoshop Actions heavily for this.
What I want to know is whether I can use ACR/Photoshop after I’m finished with the NLP conversion. Will the converted negative load in ACR and into Photoshop with all the correct settings intact? I ask because I thought I noticed some differences with a couple of images I tried. Maybe that was because I opened an image that I had converted using NLP 2.1 but now I have NLP 2.2 installed?
