Creating A Show LUT – Keeping Things Simple

In this insight we are going to take a look the idea of using a “Show LUT”.

What Is A Show LUT?

I’m not sure if this is the correct term but I’ve heard it used many times.

A Show LUT is when you decide the look of a certain scene or location you can then use the LUT as a starting point for your grade.

In this Insight below I show how it can be used to take a simple but hard to replicate look that I spent hours getting just as I wanted it.

We then create the LUT using the automated process in Resolve and apply it to other shots in the scene and also some other scenes in the film.

Do you work in this way?

If you use Show LUTs or Show Transforms I’d love to hear more from you in the comments below.

As I work in commercials my work is always after everything has been shot and decided upon.

Also most jobs are totally different from each other so I never get the opportunity to try something like this!
