Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring. This is where the use of Look Up Tables (LUT) comes in, which are offsets that allow you to manipulate your image and create a look without affecting the camera originals. 

LUTs 201: Practical Application further expands on LUTs 101: Theory. This course explores the creative side of LUT design as well as applying LUTs in different post production applications. 

Topics include:

  • Introduction to the DIT Cart
  • LUT Box
  • LiveGrade Pro
  • Tangent Panel
  • On-Set Practices
  • Post Workflow

There is also a companion course, LUTs 101: Theory.
