LUTs are a popular choice for many over recent years. They can help anyone build a portfolio of colour presets that can be used across all editing software.

They’re also heavily used by professionals to convert Log footage to a natural colour which is known to be difficult to do yourself unless you are an experienced colourist.

In this guide, I will show you exactly how to use LUTs efficiently and also install them in the program files so you don’t need to import them every time.
