As I commented to Phil Steele, this is a game changer for Lightroom. The lack of an opacity slider has long been a big drawback. Now I'll be able to do a lot more right in Lightroom, before (or, in some cases, without)going into Photoshop. Thanks!

So many possibilities, very good.

Hi! Love this tool. I do wish, however, that when you are at 0 on the opacity slider, your photo would be as it is when imported. I'm looking to blend the filter with the original RAW image. The profile is what seems to be the problem here. For example, when using VSCO presets, Kodak Portra 160 would be the profile. When the opacity slider is at 0, the photo does not look like the original. Is there a way around that?

Hi! Yes, if using VSCO and you want to blend with the "original" image (rather than the VSCO camera profile), you can try using the VSCO that is for general use (i.e. the "VSCO Film 01 - Standard") folder. The presets in here still use Adobe Standard as a starting point. It may vary a bit by pack, but at least in later packs, my testing shows that the "standard" versions are nearly indistinguishable from the other versions (and will blend better in this case).
