When I import RAW photos into LR it creates a preview if my understanding is correct. What is that preview based on ?

Is it the jpeg that is automatically created in camera ?

Is it a RAW image with a LR conversion ?


Is it just the RAW image ?

The quick preview is, I believe, the camera jpeg but I may be wrong.  This is different and should not be confused with the generation of a smart preview if you have selected that option on import. However, you can start working on a photo while the others are being imported.  Once all of the photos are in and the import bar disappears I believe all of the photos are in full RAW format.
