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.
