Straighten horizons and correct vertical lines using Lightroom Panorama Tool

Dear Lightroom Team,

I really like the new Panorama Merge Tool built in in Lightroom. Especially because i can create non destructive DNG / RAW panoramia files. Nevertheless there is a major break in my workflow if I need to straighten horizon and correct vertical lines. I usually use Photoshop CC and its "Adaptive Wide Angle filter". But if I go back to Lightroom I have to save the image as a TIF file. That means that I "lose" the DNG advantages. It would be great if you could create more sophisticated straightening options within Lightroom for a Panorama - since i guess that I ́m not the only one having this issue.

Or is there a possibility to save the DNG File after using Photoshops "Adaptive Wide Angle filter"? Or any other workflow-idea to straighten a Panorama?

Best regards
Chris

Have you tried using the Upright tools or the Manual perspective controls in the Lens Corrections panel?

Yes I've tried these options but I'm talking about more complex panoramic images
