A smooth, timeless black & white
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.
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.
