using a LUT = paying for a plug-in?
on Jul 13, 2016 at 4:01:47 pm

Canon provides a free LUT for my camera, but it looks like I need to buy a 3rd party plug-in to use it. Is that right? Hard to find a direct answer to that question. (LUT Uitility seems fine but I've been in trial mode so far. )

mLut by MotionVFX I think is free.

mLut is free, and it gives me a button to load a custom LUT. Then I have to choose my own LUT the finder window. Where would my Canon LUT be via the finder?

Thanks.

Does the built in Canon LUT to FCP X not work with your camera?

I was about to ask the same about the built in LUT but that aside, you can load the Canon supplied LUT from whichever folder you put it in.

(For some reason I can't edit my own posts so apologies in advance for the stupid mistakes and bad English that I can't go back and fix)

What I'm finding generally is that you either pay for LUTs and get the plug-in free, or vice versa. LUT Utility seems as good as anything for my needs, and cheaper than some.

I use Color Final alongside mLut, a nice combination.

Although Color Finale has LUT features now.

Wish I could say the same about Red Giant Colourista III. It has its owns strengths however. Who knows, the competitive nature of color grading plugins may force them into including a LUT facility in Colourist the next time around.

I wonder if a FCP update will add a LUT effect. They designed a LUT pull-down menu into a window, but left out a way to make the menu appear.

In FCPX you can apply the built-in LUTS by selecting your clip, then looking in the Inspector. Be sure to select Settings. Then you will see the Log Processing tab. It will give a number of build-in optional LUTS. If a LUT works for you, you can select all your files and assign the LUT to all of them at once.

Thank you, John. I don't know why I couldn't find this info (or the Log Processing menu) before, but I'm grateful for the enlightenment.
