I have been using Darktable for raw processing. Like RawTherapee it is a free, non-destructive raw editor with all changes being recorded in sidecar files. Again like RawTherapee, the UI takes a little getting used to but the software comes with many very powerful modules and is perhaps more fully featured than RawTherapee. Until recently it was only available on Mac and Linux but is now also available to those poor souls cursed with using Windows

There is an excellent series of tutorials on YouTube in the "Bruce Williams Photography" channel. One of the early ones deals with importing catalogues of photos from Lightroom which appears to be very simple, with good preservation of the work already done in LR. Other good demonstrations of the power of Darktable can be seen in YouTube videos by Harry Durgin, although it can sometimes be difficult to follow what he is doing.

Having said all of that, I have to stress that I am still at the baby step stage of raw processing
