Film colors have made a comeback to become one of the most interesting looks out there.
While you can achieve a lot of these looks using LUTs and traditional presets, we at colorist factory have been digging deeper into the looks offered under our Power Curves Project. We know what some of you reading this are thinking, what are power curves? right?

Hold up, let’s learn what Power Curves do.

Power Curves are a set of Industry inspired color Grades, masterfully recreated using native tools of popular editing platforms: Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Davinci Resolve. Power Curves are crafted keeping in mind the color limitation of Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro.

Power Curves install as normal presets, but their application goes beyond to offer much wider flexibility for novice to veteran filmmakers. Let’s take a look at a quick trailer showcasing our brand new Power Curves and walk through the basic steps of integrating Power Curves into our post-production workflow.
