Designed to stand out

Our film emulation LUTs stand apart in the crowded market of color grading tools through their unwavering commitment to mathematical precision and true scene-referred design. Unlike standard LUTs that often approximate the look of film through subjective adjustments, our LUTs are the result of rigorous analysis and replication of film stock characteristics, ensuring that the transformation of digital footage to filmic quality is not only visually accurate but mathematically true to the source material. This meticulous approach guarantees that each LUT not only emulates the aesthetic of Kodak Vision3 500T with astonishing accuracy but also preserves the integrity and intention behind every frame.

Moreover, our LUTs redefine flexibility in color grading. By truly being scene-referred, they maintain a high degree of adaptability regarding input and output color spaces. This unique characteristic means they are designed to work flawlessly within a wide range of color workflows, particularly excelling in environments that utilize DaVinci Wide Gamut. Such versatility ensures that regardless of the original footage’s color space, our LUTs can be seamlessly integrated, offering unparalleled creative freedom and fidelity. This level of adaptability and accuracy sets our film emulation LUTs in a class of their own, providing filmmakers and colorists with tools that are not only technically superior but infinitely expressive.

Tutorials & FAQs

Step 1: Applying Input Color Space Transformation (CST In)

Right-click on the first node and select ‘Color Space Transform’.
Set the ‘Input Color Space’ to match your camera profile (e.g., ARRI Wide Gamut 4) and ‘Input Gamma’ (e.g., ARRI LogC4).
Set the ‘Output Color Space’ and ‘Output Gamma’ to DaVinci Wide Gamut and DaVinci Intermediate, respectively.


Step 2: Applying the Film LUT

Right-click on the second node (the Film LUT node).
Go to ‘LUTs’ and navigate to the folder where you stored your LUTs.
Select the LUT you wish to apply (e.g., Filmblade Film (Base)).


Step 3: Applying Output Color Space Transformation (CST Out)

Right-click on the third node and select ‘Color Space Transform’.
Set the ‘Input Color Space’ to DaVinci Wide Gamut and ‘Input Gamma’ to DaVinci Intermediate (matching the output from CST In).
Choose your desired ‘Output Color Space’ and ‘Output Gamma’ for delivery (e.g., Rec.709 and Gamma 2.4).


Step 4: Adjusting the LUT

With the LUT applied, you can now adjust its intensity by changing the Key Output Gain in the Key panel.
Make further color adjustments as needed to achieve the desired look.
