Part 2: How to Control the Intensity of a LUT
Found the perfect look for your project, but the results are perhaps too bright or colorful? Read on to find out how to tone down a LUT (or any single node) in DaVinci Resolve.
Apply a LUT to Any Node in the Color page
- Find a LUT you want to apply to your shot. The LUT browser panel on the Color page works great for this (it includes a hover-scrub preview too!)
- Apply the LUT by dragging and dropping from the LUT browser to a node in the node graph.
- Open the Key panel from the panels toolbar.
- Key Output controls the opacity for that node (and the LUT applied to the node). The Baseline value is 1.0. Turning a LUT down by half would be a value of 0.5
Part 3: Using DaVinci Resolve LUTs in Photoshop
The standard format for LUTs in Davinci Resolve is .cube, which is compatible with Adobe Photoshop! Somewhat annoying, there is no way to live preview the results – you have to manually load each LUT one at a time. You may want to use Resolve’s LUT panel to preview which LUT you might want to add first then move into Adobe Photoshop.
Apply a LUT to Any Image in Adobe Photoshop
- Open the image you want to modify
- Add the adjustment layer color lookup.
- Select 3DLUT File, and load the .cube for the look you want
And that’s an overview of 500 LUTs available for DaVinci Resolve! Which pack was your favorite? Keeping resources on hand can help with creative lulls and searching for inspiration on where to take your next project. The list above provides tools and looks for any kind of project! So get filming!
