Lightroom/Camera Raw: HDR effect with glow and edge settings

I work a lot with Lightroom Classic and it is my first choice for photo editing. For some pictures though I need to turn to Cyberlink photodirector. They have a section under 'Global Adjustment tools' (comparable to the 'Basic' menu in develop in lightroom) called 'HDR Effect' with sliders for 'Glow' and 'Edge'. This I miss in Lightroom. Do you know if there is a Lightroom alternative (which I did not find yet, and it is not HDR merge) or do you know if there is a possibility that this might get included in any new releases?

There is a plugin to LR called LR/Enfuse to be found in the Adobe LR plugin list. This plugin is limited to assemble mutiple photos. It is based on the Hugin project. The are no special preset. There is an other plugin named HDR Effex Pro2  to be found in the DxO program liste. There are preset. The last, is perhaps the most well known: PhotomatixPro to be loaded at hdrsoft.com

Thanks, but this is not about assembling multiple photo's and for HDR effex Pro2, I also have the DXO programs/plug-ins, but it is not what I am looking for. This is a global adjustment integrated in the panels with sliders for a subtle effect that can be used as needed (just as the white balance, tone, HSL sliders,...) and not a preset or different program/plug-in.

I couldn't find the page listed by Todd Shaner. I got a 404 error msg. Page Not Found.

Sorry, the last few characters in the link got deleted. I've fixed the link in the above email and added it here as well:

Also try Color Efex Pro 4, which you already have as part or the Nik Collection. There’s a filter (left panel) called HDR Like (or something like that). I put many of my single shots through that.

Thanks, I looked it up and tried it out. Good tip for future use, but not really as replacement for what I was looking for.
