I havent used it yet, but I've watched a few videos and its a bit of work to get it done.
Google, Magic Lantern HDR workflow or something along those lines and I'm sure you'll find a lot of help.

I already googled it and like you say it's a bit complicated, i suppose I was hoping some of you guys would have it all worked out and just tell me. How selfish am I, haha, thanks for the reply....

Marty,
If you have After Effects(I think you can do it in Premiere too), you can layer the images over on top of each other and blend it with multiply layers.  From there you can just play with hue/saturation and other color correction tools to get the desired look.  Then if there are areas you really don't need,  you can use the rotopaint tool to get rid of it.

That's the simple way of doing it.  I tried it out before and it was hit or miss for me. Some videos looked ok, some didn't. Worth a try.

You do have to seprate the frames and yes it is fidly. I wouldn't bother with it except for specific high dynamic range shots, like windows or blown out faces in interviews. But you loose half the frames. So I use 50fps and put up with the moire.

Check out my YT channel, I have a couple tutorials there. Using Blender (freeware) but the ideas translate to many edit suites. http://youtu.be/BXvMWzE0Mhs

I also have used it to pull an exposure change in post at the right time, instead of relying on auto exposure ;)
