How do I install Finishing LUTs?

For your convenience, we've put together a quick guide for installing in Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro.

What's a Finishing LUT™?

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 color 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 tone Lens Distortions is known for.

Compared to common LUTs, Finishing LUTs generally have a lighter touch, though some style and footage combinations will appear stronger than others.

3 Tone Variations

Each Finishing LUT includes 3 variations of the look, each with its own Tone Curve. This provides a lot more flexibility for balancing color and contrast.

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.
