Long term LR5 user here. I just tried DxO 9 and am impressed with NR and sharpness. Have not played around extensively, but if I decide to incorporate it I would use it as an converter, tweak the image and then import into LR for image management.

Quick question for DxO users: does is always take 3-4 minutes to export an image to hard drive? That is way to long, IMO. Am I doing something that might cause this?

You're probably using Prime NR. It's very effective but computationally intense. For low to moderate ISO shots you don't need it. Processing with the the default NR only takes a few seconds. In either case, you can keep on working on the next image(s) while previous image(s) are processed.

Obviously you should make sure that it's taking advantage of all the available threads on your PC.

Yes, thanks, I did realize that afterwards.  I had known about the Prime NR being processor intensive, but thought that the processing occurred while generating the preview, not the actual writing to disk.

One other quick question - when exporting to drive, it is possible to rename the file?  Something other than the default -DSCxxxxx?  I don't expect this function in DxO to be as robust as LR, but I should have the option in naming the output file.
