Nikon Z9 Raw files

Hi i have recently bought a Nikon Z9 and tried to hdr merge 3 raw photos but did not worked.
Could you please let me know if it is a matter of compatibility like currently with Lightroom that will improve
with a newer version or if you can propose any other way e.g transform with other software to tiff and merge the photos to SNS-HDR?
Thank you for any input.

The last update of SNS-HDR is at May 2021, and Nikon Z9 was out at December 2021. So apparently, SNS-HDR does not support Z9 raw file. FYI, SNS-HDR uses LibRaw as Raw conversion library. And the latest version of LibRaw (0.20) still does not support Z9.

One workaround is to convert the Z9 NEF to DNG format using latest Lightroom. As far as my testing, the Z9 DNG file from Lightroom Classic 11.2 can be read with no problem by SNS-HDR.
