This is a comparison of Photomatix Pro and HDR Expose. I think the video speaks for itself.
This was shot full manual with a ND 3.0 filter. I adjusted the colors and cropped the image in Lightroom and used LRTimelapse to animate the crop. Then exported out 1920x1080 JPGs. These JPGs were used for both Photomatix and HDR Expose.
I may have made a mistake with in Photomatix, but I've tried lots of settings and really can't see anyway around the flickering. Obviously the alignment is also a little crazy.
Lastly, I actually like the controls and final look of Photomatix better, but maybe with a little more tweaking I might be able to get the look I want.
