What is LUTs?
LUT is known as Lookup Table. In short, LUT is pre-defined color preset or a template which is used to color grade the videos instantly. It is pre-defined because in a LUT the color is defined for shadow, mid-tone and high-light, we cannot change the defined colors. For an example, If I color grade a clip from scratch and want to save that color theme as preset for further use. So, in that case, either I have to save it as color preset or convert into a LUT. We cannot transfer the preset from one PC to another but LUTs can be.
People use LUTs because it is convenient to use rather than make an entire color space and also saves a lot of time. It also gives you an option to share your color space to others in the form of LUTs. Accept a professional colorist, a normal person can also color grade his video clip with LUTs. So, you don’t need to hire a professional to color grade your footage to look great. But still, it has certain limitation.
Types of LUTs for Color Grading
There are 6 types of LUTs are used for basic colour grading and they are:
- Transformation LUTs
- Viewing LUTs
- Calibration LUTs
- Log normalization LUTs
- 1D LUTs
- 2D LUTs
