My workflow for non-IR images is to start in Lightroom 4 and then go to Photoshop if necessary. For my IR images I have started using Capture NX2 to open the RAW NEF file and set the white balance.

All good so far. If I save as a NEF and import into LR, the new whitebalance is lost and the image looks 'as shot'. As a workaround I have been using the CNX2 'Open With' option which goes directly to Photoshop. Photoshop opens the image as a tiff and preservs the new WB setting.

As an experiment in CNX2 I saved the image as a TIFF and then imported it into LR. Now the new white balance was preserved. So I can go from CNX2 to LR if I save the image in CNX2 as a TIFF. It didn't seem to make a difference whether I check the 'embed ICC profile' box.

So my question is why am I losing the wb setting if in CNX2 I save the image as an NEF (no XMP file seems to be created). Am I doing something wrong.
