Lightroom Classic: Add the option for batch HDR's multiple images

Working on images with HDR with images, we always process the images with the same configuration and it is a waste of time, having to convert the HDR by 1 by 1 of a project.

 LR have included the option for multiple HDR + Panoramic but it's not enough. We need an option to process HDR images in batches, which can include all the images of a project, several panoramas and that only processes HDR (selecting if it takes 3, 5 or 7 bracketing images).For example, select all the Images on a folder and process 900 images on a same folder with HDR.

 In Bridge have a similiar option but also mix with panorama images.


What do you think? Do you have any other way to process your HDR?

Many thanks in advance.

The problem with this request is that it would take a lot of work for a very limited number of users. As there are 3rd party plug-ins that accomplish this function (Photomatix for one), I'd argue that there are much more important features for the Lightroom developers to invest their resources: more GPU usage, improved object removal, native focus stacking... My vote is for them to work on enhancements that cannot or won't be provided by 3rd parties.

I'm not sure I understand the request, because I believe Lightroom can already do this. All you need to do is use auto-stack by capture time to stack the HDR brackets. Then Lightroom can merge these stacks into HDRs in batch.

As Johan, says - unless we are misunderstanding you, this functionality is already in Lightroom Classic

Alternative solution. 

 

If you have a camera with an ISO invariant sensor, HDR is unnecessary. Just create a develop profile that delivers the desired results and then apply it to the images. 

 

Cameras with this type of sensor include the Fuji X-T3 and X-T4. I would guess that most medium to high end cameras with Sony sensors released in the past couple years have this type of sensor.
