Show LUT Design
Show LUT design is an essential part of the color grading process. However, designing Show LUTs can be a challenging task, and requires some understanding of color science, technical specifications, and artistic principles.
In this insight, we look at how to build Show LUTs that can be implemented in all major cinema cameras and monitors, while also being optimized for the increasing demand of monitoring HDR on set, grading in Rec709 or P3 and delivering for a variety of display targets.
The insight covers a range of techniques, including utilization of the new Reveal Color Science from ARRI, aligning middle gray values of looks to various cameras using the free LUT Assistant Plugin for Resolve, managing neutrality of middle gray, exposure compensation, extreme curves, and on-set CDL adjustments. We also discuss LUT generation and its limitations.
