They’re finally here! 32 Video Editing LUTs focused on skin tones, simplicity and timelessness. After making photo presets for Lightroom and Photoshop, I wanted to create a way to easily grade video with the same focus on skin tones, tweak-ability and simplicity.

WHO ARE THESE FOR: These LUTs are for anyone looking for awesome skin tones but work best on properly exposed footage shot in clean natural light. They’ve been tested on some of the industry standards best cameras. The footage in the video above was shot on Red Epic, Arri Alexa, Sony A7rii, Canon C300, Canon 5D Mark IV cameras.
HOW DO THEY WORK: They work on any software that can read .cube files. For Premiere users they’ll simply load these using the Lumertri Tab. I edit in Final Cut Pro X and use the LUT Utility Plugin. The plugin is awesome because it allows you to adjust the opacity or “Mix” of each LUT. While some of the LUTs look great on their own, it’s fun to play around with applying a few of them. For example: On log footage, I’ll apply one of the Flat Fix Luts along with say PC1 at a lower “Mix” or opacity. Play around and find your own recipes!
WHAT PROFILES WORK BEST: Canon: Neutral Sony: Gamme Cine 4 // Color Mode: Cinema Panasonic: Natural
