How to work with .dop (DXO proprietary file format)

Hello there,

I work with DXO Optics and would like to combine this with Lightroom and Photoshop.
DXO produces sidecar files called .dop.
How do i open a raw (.nef) imported photo in Lightroom to DXO and then save the changes back into Lightroom to go on changing the foto on top of the changes that DXO made?
If those programs cannot work together and keep the files raw and keep the setings they all make, then i can not buy lightroom and photoshop.
Or, is there maybe a .DOP to XMP sidecar converter?

Thankyou!

.DOP appears to be a proprietary file format for DXO - so nobody else is going to be able to work with it.

Okay, so DXO does not give solutions to work with Lightroom?
Or would there be another way to keep your photos raw working adobe and dxo software?

You can change the preferences when you save a file in DxO and remove the option to save as .dop, you just have to keep the original and the DxO copy in the same file.
