What is a LUT and what is it used for?

LUT, otherwise known as Look Up Tables, are a method of changing the way an image appears. LUTs are used with video footage to change the color of the video to match that of another video or still image. There are two main types of LUTs: 3D and 2D. A 3D LUT is applied directly to the video footage and has a more dramatic effect than a 2D LUT. A 2D LUT is applied to a video after it has been recorded. The result is that a 2D LUT will alter the color of a clip in post. LUTs (Look Up Tables) must be one of the coolest things in video editing. They have the power to change the look and feel of your footage drastically and are used by many professional colorists. Probably because they look so cool, LUTs are often over-hyped online, but their real power is often misunderstood.

What makes a cinematic look?

Cinematic storytelling is a complex thing. It takes great writing, acting, editing and directing to create a truly immersive experience. However, if you set out to see what makes a scene cinematic, you’ll find that there are patterns. One of the most popular patterns is to use wide-angle lenses to frame shots. Wide-angles allow you to capture a lot of information in the frame at once and make it feel like you’re part of the scene. If done correctly, this can make your audience feel like they’re walking through the scene with your characters.

How do I make footage look cinematic?

Not all videos have to look cinematic, but if you want yours to stand out, it should. So what is a cinematic look? Cinematic is a look that gives your film a professional feel, and it’s used in many different types of content.

Should you use LUTs in video editing?

LUTs are most commonly used to create and store the degree of color that can be used or applied in other film projects. You can also bring logs and flat materials to life by adding contrast and style, and converting them to the Rec.709 color space. As mentioned above, you can also load the LUT onto your monitor or display and adjust it to get an idea of ​​what the movie will look like. One of the reasons for using the LUT is that is readily available online and is often free. They range from specific LUTs created by the film manufacturer to LUTs created by the camera manufacturer to work with a specific camera or set of cameras. LUTS can also be created to reflect the look of a particular footage (for example, Kodak or Fujifilm). This is because we don’t want the movie to look like video, we want it to look like traditional footage.  Experienced color graders can easily achieve results equal to or better than LUTs, but can be an invaluable tool in grading and editing workflows, especially for inexperienced editors.

Is it OK to use LUTs?

LUTs are a way of making color grading easier. Most camera sensors have the same sensor pattern, which means that they have the same visual appearance to the human eye. They also have a different internal pattern, and the LUT is used to correct that difference. Most cameras ship with a standard LUT installed, but photographers and videographers can install others and choose which one to use depending on their shooting environment and desired look. A lot of people say that using LUTs is cheating, or isn’t really videography. Others say that LUTs are necessary because you can’t get the same.
