Achieve a Cohesive Aesthetic

Finishing LUTs are designed to tie your entire sequence of shots together, resulting in a cohesive, cinematic tone. They’re less about infusing new color into your project and more about tightening up all of your shots around a disciplined color palette. 

The focus of each Finishing LUT is uniform consistency across all of your footage, preservation of color integrity, and a stylized look – in that order.

Whether you use them as a starting point, in conjunction with other LUTs you already own, or as the final touch in your workflow, Finishing LUTs can improve your color grading process.

Note: Finishing LUTs are not conversion LUTs. If you shoot in LOG format or a different color space, please normalize your footage to Rec. 709 before applying a Finishing LUT.

Tested and Refined

The majority of LUTs on the market focus on heavy-handed style at the expense of quality. Those dramatic blockbuster replicas may feel expressive, but odds are they are completely compromising the integrity of your shots.

Finishing LUTs are rigorously stress tested to ensure color stability across a wide variety of footage all while providing the cinematic color grades Lens Distortions is known for.

In the example below the sky gradually shifts from Orange to Deep Blue (this is a very common scenario for dawn and dusk shots.) Most LUTs ruin this gradient, creating harsh contrast between the two colors. Our LUTs are designed to preserve gradients, making the transition as smooth and natural as possible.

Finishing LUTs not only do a great job of preserving color fidelity, they are also designed to shift unwanted tones to their ideal hues. For example, many cameras are often biased a bit green. We don’t love that look, so we’ve designed our LUTs to restore these tones to a natural state.

Universally Compatible

Works with Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve, Lumafusion, Photoshop, etc. Compatible with any software that supports 3D LUTs.

Finishing LUTs work with any standard video footage (Rec. 709). If you shoot standard footage on your camera, you’re good to go. If you shoot in LOG format or another color space, please normalize your footage before applying a Finishing LUT.

Cinematic LUTs are tools used in video editing to apply color grading and color correction to your footage.

LUTs (Look-Up Tables) are essentially files containing mathematical formulas that alter the colors and tones of an image based on predefined values. They serve as a reference guide for transforming the input colors of a video or image to achieve a desired output look.

Cinematic LUTs are specifically designed to emulate the aesthetic styles and color grading techniques used in movies, cinematic shows, and high-end commercials. They often aim to replicate the look of popular films.

By applying a cinematic LUT, video editors can quickly enhance the visual quality of their footage and create a more polished and professional look.

Cinematic LUTs are often used in conjunction with other color grading tools to fine-tune the overall look and feel of a video, including adjusting contrast, saturation, and brightness.

It’s worth noting that while cinematic LUTs provide a starting point for achieving a specific visual style, additional adjustments and tweaks may be necessary to tailor the look to a particular scene or project. Therefore, they serve as a helpful tool in the color grading process, but the final creative decisions are still made by the filmmaker or video editor.
