General

What can I do with Lutify.me 3D LUTs?

Lutify.me 3D LUTs are designed to elevate your color grading style and give you the best starting point for your color grades.

The provided 3D LUTs are divided into two main categories:

Creative Looks – These 3D LUTs are more profound creative looks and effects and are great starting points for all your creative needs. These 3D LUTs have been carefully crafted with a special attention to skin tones and have been designed to work in as many situations as possible (within context).

Film emulations – While we believe it’s impossible to truly emulate a specific film stock, these 3D LUTs are much more subtle grading looks emulating general characteristics of certain film stocks. You should use these 3D LUTs whenever a more subtle color grading look is desired. Just as our creative 3D LUTs, these 3D LUTs have been carefully crafted with a special attention to skin tones and have been designed to work in as many situations as possible (within context).

You should remember that no matter the way you choose to use Lutify.me 3D LUTs, it’s nearly impossible to manually recreate the subtleties of thousands of individually crafted color transformations each LUT offers.

The best way to explore Lutify.me 3D LUTs would be to check our showcase.

What do I get when I buy one of Lutify.me products?

Each package we offer has these items included in the downloadable package:

High Quality 3D LUTs
The type and number of 3D LUTs included depends on the package you buy. Some of our packages include in addition Log-to-Rec.709 3D LUTs to normalise your footage or linearly developed images from Capture One, prior to applying one of the creative looks.

Film Grain Pack
In order to allow you to recreate an organic film look, and to give your images more pleasing aesthetics, we’ve included a film grain pack inside every package we offer. The film grain pack consists of 4K 4096×2304 16×9 25 FPS film grain scans, HD 1920×1080 16×9 25 FPS film grain scans and 50MP film grain scans for your images.

Documentation
Full documentation is included with every package we offer. The documentation covers common usages, best-use practices, tips and tricks for getting the best out of your LUTs and specific information for every LUT describing the optimal settings to get the best possible looking images.

In addition, when you buy one of our packages you get 1-Year license entitling you to free updates and support.

What makes Lutify.me collection of 3D LUTs unique?

We offer industry-standard 3D LUTs only, trusted and used by professionals for better, faster and easier color correction, color grading and creative photo looks.

We meticulously tweaked the color science of all of our LUTs to deliver the best looking photos possible, while retaining organic cinema-quality looks for your videos.

What is a 3D LUT?

LUT stands for Look Up Table. In short, LUT is a table used to map one color space to another. For example, a LUT can remap a log image into Rec.709 space or it can be used to apply a preset look for any given image or footage.

LUTs are commonly used to calculate preview colors for a monitor or digital projector of how an image will be reproduced on another display device. However, LUTs may be used as a starting point for color grading.

It is useful to think of LUTs using the following equation:
Result = Source Material + LUT
LUT in this case represents the difference needed to make up between the result and the source material.

In practical and simplified terms, a LUT is a highly sophisticated look which you can apply to your image or footage in order to correct it or give it a distinctive, creative, starting point for your final color grade. However, 3D LUTs are much more than just looks.

LUTs allow you to overcome the limitations of standard color grading tools by altering thousands of individually crafted color transformations per LUT. Simply put, it’s nearly impossible to manually recreate the look of a LUT.

Why use 3D LUTs when there are other photo effects/filters software solutions?

Since LUTs allow you to overcome the limitations of standard color grading tools by altering thousands of individually crafted color transformations per LUT, it’s quite simple the most advanced starting point for your color grade.

More importantly, it’s nearly impossible to manually recreate the look of a LUT. You might be able to recreate the broad aspects of the color science behind a LUT, but you won’t be able to recreate thousands of individually crafted color transformations found within the LUT.

Therefore, LUTs allow you to achieve sophisticated looks otherwise impossible with standard photo effects/filters software solutions.

What is color correction?

Color correction is the process of manually tweaking your image or footage in order to find a correct balance between exposure, color temperature, contrast and light.

Typically, color correction would require you to correct the white balance, adjust the shadows, midtones and highlights, contrast and set the overall balance for your image and footage.

3D LUTs can help you normalize your footage, for example remapping it from log space to Rec.709, however their biggest strength is for setting a creative overall look for the image or the footage, or emulating a film stock.

What is color grading?

Color grading is the creative process or manipulating your images or footage so that further enhancements are made to image’s color, contrast, lighting within the image, color gradients and more. Film stock emulation is also done at the color grading stage.

Simply put, while color correction purpose is to normalize the image or the footage, color grading purpose it to creatively change it.

3D LUTs can be used as “AS IS” looks for color grading, however we encourage you to use them as your starting point to further enhance your images since not all images are created equal.

What is the difference between 1D and 3D LUTs?

From a simplified point of view, LUTs simply take an input value from the source material and re-map it to a new output in order to create a new look.

1D LUTs may be useful for setting contrast, the white point of a display, or overall color balance adjustments but they do little to convey the complexities needed for creating a good looking image when grading.

3D LUTs overcome the limitations of 1D LUTs by placing color and luma in a 3D space, a much more representative way of how color works in real world. 3D LUTs are much more useful for capturing and relaying complex color grades than a 1D LUTs.

All of Lutify.me LUTs are 3D LUTs.

Will Lutify.me work with my Camera?

To increase the flexibility of the creative process, all of our 3D LUTs are decoupled from any Log to Rec.709 conversions. This means, Lutify.me is camera agnostic.

For still photographers as long as you use Lutify.me 3D LUTs with images of a normal contrast range and white balance, it will work. This includes all Raw, DNG, Tiff and JPG files, processed with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Capture One and other software.

For filmmakers, you should normalize your footage prior to applying one of our creative 3D LUTs. This means if your footage is in Log you should use one of the Log to Rec.709 LUTs found within your package to first normalize the footage. We offer conversion LUTs for following Log formats:

How should I expose to get the best results from Lutify.me?

For most parts, Lutify.me should work best with properly exposed photos and footage. This means no overexposed highlights and no underexposed shadows. Your image should be balanced.

However, this doesn’t mean you should protect your highlights or shadows at all costs. If your subject is in shadow behind a large bright object, it would be smarter to expose properly for your subject rather than keeping the highlights from overexposing.

Having said that, please bear in mind, that some LUTs work better with slightly over or under exposed photos and footage.

Specific instructions for each LUT can be found in the documentation inside your package.

Should I use a specific white balance for Lutify.me?

You should always use a correct white balance for the type of lighting you’re shooting in.

If you’re aiming for a warmer look for example, you should still shoot with a correct white balance and than apply one of the warmer LUTs from your package. If you use incorrect white balance for the type of lighting you’re using, you’ll not be able to anticipate Lutify’s output.

Lutify delivers expected results for photos and footage with correct white balance.

Should I aim for specific contrast while shooting?

Most Lutify.me LUTs will work best with photos and footage of normal contrast. This is especially true for film emulation type LUTs.

However, some LUTs will work best if used in low or high contrast scenes. Specific instructions for each LUT can be found in the documentation inside your package.
