Very nice. Do you know if there is good focus stacking software available as plugin for Lightroom?
I don't know. I would wonder about Lightroom, as it would be early in the PP process, or earlier than I like to do stacking. I generally process the layer photos in NX2, convert to JPEG or rarely TIFF, then stack, then crop if necessary. You have to be very careful not to introduce any more variation in light levels or anything else before you stack, since the software needs layers where the variation is mainly in the point of focus. By the time HF takes on the stack of images, everything is already done to them. PP sharpening, any WB adjustment, etc. But I don't play with anything that wouldn't be the same adjustment image to image. So you can batch adjust a whole stack to a certain light level, a sharpness level, and maybe a WB adjustment to a grey card or something. Then stack them in HF and run the results. I might rarely adjust light in the final image, or even select a piece of the background to darken or lighten in NX2 afterward.
You can't stack NEF images. So a plugin to something like Lightroom doesn't really help much, I would think. But that's a guess, I don't really know.
