IanAvery-LeafLUTs aren't really a one size fits all thing that so many people probably led you to believe, they're usually used as a starting point to get LOG footage to look closer to rec709 standard, and then color further from there. Without letting us know what camera you're even using we have nothing to base recommendations off, so my recommendation would be to skip LUTs completely and learn basic color correcting manually, you'll thank me later
trifonitchevNot really because you can use the LUT created in Adobe Pro regardless of the camera and then adjust the .cube file in the Software itself to your needs. I've done it multiple times and the results were pleasing.
But i guess thanks for the effort.
trifonitchevNo i totally understood your point of might as well learning it completely myself which will likely improve everything. But then again for my needs it is safe to say its enough to have it the easy way and to use presets that you can adjust to your needs.
eheathYou still don't get it.
LUTs are used as an overall effect for an entire set of clips aka an edit. You correct/adjust your footage to match then you apply a LUT, the process you need to learn is the first step of using a LUT.
eheathUsing a LUT to adjust/correct isn't really what you're supposed to do. A LUT is a set look, adjusting it completely defeats the purpose of using a LUT.
trifonitchevright i see where this goes. So if i get right now , i may use the LUT as baseline and adjust the clips properties such as whites blacks sharpness shadows color dynamic etc etc ?
eheathCompletely opposite, there are other tools to adjust your clips that will not only be easier than adjusting a LUT but theyre actually made to adjust your clips. Again, LUTs are not used to individually adjust clips, they are used as a drag and drop effect to create a set of clips. In premiere, luminari color has many different tools for adjusting your clips.
trifonitchevAh damn it. Okay okay , because what i was doing at the moment and i thought it to be right , since it kinda worked out regarding the outcome. I applied the "Lumetri Color" effect via Premiere onto the clip/sequence with an adjustment layer that drag over the whole composition. Then set the Input-Lut as whatever i feel i want for this edit and then play around the "easy correction" sliders from the Lumetri color effect for every single clip to make it "fit". But that is the basically as explained to me the complete opposite i should do right ?
eheathTBH you've said different things every time you've posted so idk what you're looking for here. In the end, there is a "right" way but everyone does things differently. The fact is a LUT isn't meant to be adjusted, it's just an overall effect to apply to a set of clips, you use other tools to adjust your color. But, like I said, everyone does whatever they like the most, you don't have to be "right" to achieve your goal, do your thing brother.
Back on topic, I never use LUTs so unfortunately I do not have any LUTs for you.
trifonitchevSo maybe as last question what are your go to tools for grading ?
eheathI don't do a ton of grading, mostly just correcting with color wheels, I think curves is the best, but I find for the correction/grading I do, the wheels are more efficient for me. I also use the scopes, primarily the RGB parade to see my white balance and check exposure, adjusting to a certain white/black level by using the sliders under the wheels and adjusting red/green/blue levels with the color wheels to match white balance.
