My goal for this pack was simple - create 10 LUTs that are actually usable.
The thing is… SUBTLETY IS EVERYTHING when it comes to color grading. It’s about accentuating the detail in your shots without getting in the way of the big picture of the story you’re trying to tell.
If you’re like me, chances are you’ve downloaded with your fair share of LUTs only to find that they are… well… ridiculous and unusable (or if so only at 20% intensity).
And a lot of them are created for LOG footage meaning that they force you to bypass the “primary grade” step which is CRITICAL to coloring accurately to your camera’s needs.
I wanted to go about this a different way.
Used in conjunction with already corrected footage (conversion LUTs available for free from your camera’s website), these new Essential LUTs give you the power of subtle changes in color grading.
This process allows you to shift the mood and tone of your footage without sacrificing the true color science your camera was designed to function within.
You get powerful and easy to use grading tools - delivering incredible results no matter what camera you use.
