If you want to create the best results:
Make sure to lower the opacity of the LUT and adjust the contrast, highlights and vibrance of your footage to fine tune the look to your style.
While these LUTs are designed to work with any footage, you will get the best results if your clips are shot in a flat picture profile for better dynamic range (eg. LOG C, SLOG or C-LOG).
For footage that has already been corrected, the Rec709 LUTs will work best, for LOG footage, the LOG LUTs will work best.
How to use them?
When applying a LUT, if you find the result too intense for your footage, start by decreasing the contrast, highlights and vibrance values of your footage to create the desired result before decreasing the opacity of the LUT. Decreasing the opacity, will result in loss of the colour values built into it. I personally find setting the opacity between 70-90% and adjusting the contrast and highlights works best for me.
The same concept applies to white balance. If your image is looking too warm or cool, a simple white balance correction will instantly fix this. To achieve the best results, make sure to correct the white balance of your footage before applying the LUT.
My personal recommendation would be to first apply your camera manufacturers Rec709 conversion LUT for your specific color profile (you can find these on the manufacturers website) and then apply one of the Rec709 LUTs from this collection. This will ensure the best color reproduction for your specific camera.
If you are unsure how to install LUTs into your video editing software, a simple YouTube search will solve all your problems. Simply type “how to install luts in your editing software."
Will these LUTs work with my camera?
Yes, these LUTs, specifically the Rec709 versions have been tested on Canon, Sony, RED, Arri and Blackmagic cameras to ensure they work well across the board. To achieve the best results, pair these LUTs with your manufacturers Rec709 conversion LUT that you can find for free on their site. There is a tutorial included that details how to make these LUTs work on any footage.
Will I get access to any updates to this collection?
Yes! Any updates I make to this collection will be emailed to you for download.
Will these work on iPhone?
Yes! I regularly color grade my iPhone footage in VN with these LUTs! All you will have to do is transfer the LUTs to the files app on your phone then install them into your video editing app of choice, I personally use and would recommend VN.
