I'm working through the Aurora trial and I was hoping to replace Oloneo,Photomatix (used for different purposes), Lightroom and Photoshop with Aurora/Luminar and Affinity... I hit a major snag though (among some smaller ones that are topics for another thread); the batch process for HDR does an automatic grouping of brackets... the problem is that it's not very dependable, and in a batch of several hundred images, I always end up with quite a few divided/broken brackets. To make matters worse, if I take the time to drag the thumbnails into the correct grouping, the batch ends up skipping those brackets altogether...
The fancy automated feature is kind of a neat idea, but there really isn't a practical need for it that I can see; the ability to define the number of shots in a bracket (ie: multiples of 3) like in Oloneo and Photomatix works just fine, every single time, and doesn't take any more time.
I think there really needs to be a way to do an absolute, defined grouping method based on the order in the folder, for when the "smart" detection doesn't work.
