TuFuse Pro (and Tufuse too) will do exposure blending on a single image by fusing "different" exposures of a given image. Alternatively, one can generate 3 separate "exposures" in ACR and feed them into Tufuse as 3 images. Which way is better? Will 3 separately developed images from ACR give better results than letting TuFuse genrate the "underexposed" and "overexposed" images from the original?

If you create the 3 exposures in the raw converter you are more likely to recover details from some blown or almost blown whites or blocked blacks in the fake exposures. If you send a tif to Tufuse and do it there, the whites and blacks have already been clipped. If there is no clipping at all in the raw file, it probably doesn't matter. I've never actually done a comparison but I have done it both ways on different images. If there is any chance that the raw file is clipping or even shows loss of contrast in the highlights, I do the extra exposures in the raw converter.
