  4. How can I change the strength/opacity of the 3D LUTs in Adobe Premiere Pro?

In order to be able to easily change the strength/opacity of the 3D LUTs in Premiere Pro you should apply them to Adjustment Layers.

First, learn how to apply a 3D LUT in Premiere Pro, by visiting the “How do I apply 3D LUTs in Adobe Premiere Pro?” document.

In this document, we’ll explain how to create adjustment layers and how to reduce/increase their strength/opacity.

Applying a 3D LUT to an adjustment layer is exactly the same as applying a 3D LUT to a regular clip, so make sure you know how to apply LUTs in Premiere Pro first by visiting the “How do I apply 3D LUTs in Adobe Premiere Pro?” document above.

Reducing the strength/opacity of a 3D LUT

1. Create an Adjustment Layer by clicking on the New Item button and than choose Adjustment Layer.

2. Drag your newly created adjustment layer and position it above your clip. Adjust its length so it affects the clip you’d like to color grade. Please note that adjustment layers will affect anything below them, so make sure your adjustment layer covers only the required clip/clips.

6. If you wish to push the effect even further, you may create additional adjustment layers to further increase the effect 3D LUT has.

7. You’ve increased your 3D LUT opacity.

Please note, in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015 you can change the strength of the LUTs by changing the value under Intensity in either Color Interface Tab or under Effects Control.
