Perhaps I should have said : For Nikon NEF RAW what is your software of choice for global edits -> then what is your software choice for local edits ?

I haven't found a problem with any of the trial versions of popular software I have tested or the ones I have owned.

These days, I usually start in Lightroom for basic adjustments.

Then I usually go into Photoshop and do noise removal and sharpening with Topaz AI Clear.  Then I do whatever else I like in Photoshop, often using NIK Color Efex or other plugins.  I typically use layer masks for selective local adjustments.  Then I save the result as a JPEG for casual viewing and I save the NEF to support the media storage industry.
