Speedlooks vs mLooks vs ?
on Oct 3, 2012 at 3:04:24 pm

Has anyone used either Speedlooks or mLooks predefined 'looks' for Resolve 9?

Care to recommend either of these or suggest another 'looks' package?

I will be grading primarily H.264 material from a 5D2.

I use the looks from Bob Sliga and it's a good place to start:

It also comes with tutorials videos that are quite useful.

Thanks, it looks like a great value and bought directly via paypal.
I'm VERY curious however about the pricey speedLooks which are based on 3D LUTs and will probably pick up the clean package. Not sure if they all work with DSLR footage.

Most LUTs used for look presets are 3d luts. I don't see anything special about their looks at all to be honest just a lot of marketing and some basic grades.

You're probably right but got seduced by the marketing.;)
Also picked up Bob Sliga's set which come with a ton of tutorials and are great for learning.

Hey Dan.

I will take your comment about marketing as a compliment. I am the owner and creator of SpeedLooks and also created all of our marketing material. :)

I would like to comment on your posting "just a lot of marketing and some basic grades".

SpeedLooks are far from basic grades...in fact they are not grades at all. SpeedLooks are 3D LUTS based on 35mm shooting stocks. They are true film emulation and transform digital footage into the color space of 35MM film.

SpeedLooks have been used on hundreds of commercials, music videos, corporate videos and network television programs. Check out the link below to the CBC drama "Trauma"; this program is shot on the Arri Alexa camera with SpeedLooks applied on set and finessed in the post-production process with SpeedGrade, to give the series a rich and dramatic film look.

And lastly SpeedLooks work in all major color correction systems (SpeedGrade, Resolve, Film Light, Scratch, Lustre....) and LUT boxes/monitors.

To see our product and examples of how SpeedLooks can create beautiful images, check out all of our before and after videos on Vimeo. https://vimeo.com/looklabs and our website http://www.looklabs.net.

Hey Jim

SpeedLooks work great with the 5D II. In fact SpeedLooks are optimized for all major cameras (ALEXA, RED, Sony S-LOG, 5D/7D, REC 709).

SpeedLooks use LOG-C as thier base. So if you shoot 5D with the Technicolor profile and then apply the SpeedLook 5D patch (5D Technicolor to LOG-C) SpeedLooks looks just work and are beautiful.
