Lumetri Looks vs LUTs
When you add footage to your project, go to the Color tab. In the Lumitri Color panel, you find several options to color grade your footage. Let’s talk about Basic Correction and Creative.
In the Basic Correction you can use the in-app LUTs or add custom LUTs. It’s an easy one-click process to use LUTs. Luckily, we have an impressive collection of 200+ free LUTs that you can download here. Along with the download links, you will find more details about what LUTs are and how to use them.
LUTs are amazing shortcuts to color grading. But if you want to go an extra mile, check the Creative tab.
The Creative Tab gives you several powerful color tools: adjustments, curves, color wheels. That’s where you can go full Hollywood or retro or rustic in your video scenes.
Custom Lumetri Looks
You don’t have to recreate the looks for every video scene, though. Instead, finish your color grading and then save your look by going up to the dropdown next to Lumetri Color in the tab and choosing Export.look. Save it in a folder and use the preset in other projects.
