Migrating project with LUTs that are no longer installed
on Aug 27, 2013 at 1:27:51 pm

I have an old project that used some LUTs that I no longer have installed, which I am trying to migrate over to a new machine.

I have tried moving the entire database (via backup/restore) and also exporting the project (ticking the LUT box when doing so). Neither methods seem to migrate across the old LUT.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Toby

It's worth noting I applied the old LUT via a node and despite the LUT not being installed anymore, is still being aplied by the node in the old project!

Are you not able to create a LUT from a Node/Correction? If the non existent LUT is still being applied correctly, you could try opening the project in "Read Only" mode, disabling all corrections but the LUT and generating a new one...

May not work, but if it does you have the LUT you no longer have...

I thought of that but I've never found DaVinci's LUT generation to be 100% reliable, especially when using a complex 3D LUT like this one (Alexa LogC to Technicolor Vision 3 250D log film scan LUT, that's increasing colour separation and is fragile as-is, without DaVinci ripping it which might introduce further problems). I'll give it a go if there's no other way and report back.

Thanks!

What about stripping everything but the LUT and saving the Node to the Still Store?
