I was able to add FF3 16bit to the Lightroom 4 "edit in" menu (Edit>>Preferences>>External Editing), along with all my other image editors.
Problem is, when I right-click on an image in lightroom and choose FF, FF opens, but NOT with the image I selected, rather the native "life preserver" image. This doesn't happen in my other editors.
Is this an enhancement or a bug? Is there something I can do to fix it?

Seems to me that Lightroom opens up Filter Forge as an external Image editor and not as a plug-in...So the image that you use does not open because Filter Forge does not know to open that image..Filter Forge is opening as if in Stand-Alone Mode...What you need to do is install FF as a plug-in....In Windows find...C:\Program Files\Filter Forge 3\Plugin Then copy this into your Plugins in Lightroom..(I have not used Lightroom) so I am not sure if it even supports this......

I think that perhaps the problem is that Filter Forge is not an editor software, it is a plugin software, so perhaps there is a missing link or bridge that is the one that should send the image from Lightroom to Filter Forge and then back to Lightroom.
I do not know really if Filter Forge can be compatible with Lightroom or not

|Filter Forge has never supported LR as a host application.|

Clear answer from GMM
I have not used Lightroom but I think I have seen that the Plugins for Lightroom must be made specially compatible for Lightroom and is not compatible with the Photoshop Plugins directly. Please if I am wrong, tell me as I do not really know if this is true or not.

||Just curious and wondering, Why Filter Forge Inc. does not want or can´t support and be compatible with Lightroom ?|
