Are these luts compatible with my camera?

Our LUTs were designed to work with any camera recording in a Natural / Neutral / Rec.709 profile. We made sure to test each LUT on as many different cameras, scenes, lighting, and colors as possible so that they work in a wide variety of uses.

If you are shooting in a Log or flat profile, you will need to apply a transformation LUT or add contrast and saturation before the creative LUT.

Can I APPLY these LUTs TO LOG footage?

Yes! These LUTs are compatible with footage from any camera, regardless of what picture profile you shot in. If you would like to apply a LUT to LOG footage, you will need to convert the footage to Rec.709 before applying our creative LUT. You can do this by either applying a translation LUT from the manufacturer or by simply adding contrast (s-curve) and saturation.

 
 

What is the recommended image processing pipeline?

Since LUTs apply the same transformation regardless of the input, it is oftentimes necessary to apply a base grade before the LUT in the image pipeline. You may need to adjust white balance, tint, exposure, contrast, and saturation before adding the creative LUT in order to make it look natural. For example, this can be done in Premiere Pro Lumetri using the Basic tab. Then apply the LUT in the Creative tab. In DaVinci Resolve, create a serial node before the LUT to make any primary adjustments necessary.

You can also add secondary adjustments after the LUT if you would like to make further adjustments.
