Camera LUT to DaVinci

Recommended Posts

Can a LUT that is applied in the Alexa camera while shooting transfer to DaVinci Resolve automatically when it's not shot RAW but Apple ProRes 4444?

For Alexa MINI, SXT, Amira...  actual Look file is part of metadata regardless of rec format, RAW or ProRes. In Davinci Resolve you can right click on timeline clip thumbnail and use "Apply ARRI CDL and LUT" from the menu or use ARRI META EXTRACT if you need separate LUT and CDL files.

Thank you Miodrag, it solved everything! How does the ARRI META EXTRACT work?

ARRI META EXTRACT is a free download from arri web page. Simple registration is required for access. As name says, the app will extract all metadata (collected by ALEXA camera) from QT, ArriRAW or MXF files and save CSV with all metadata, AML (Alexa Look file), CDL and LUT(cube) as separate files. LUT and CDL can be used in Resolve (or other) to recreate the look. Real fun begins when you dig into CSV file. VFX department loves it. Check it out.

Do you guys have any idea about how to disable the built in ARRI LUT after enabling it?
