Although sometimes difficult to get right, a good professional Show-LUT can save you a lot of time in the post and help you create the images you envision.
This new update for Colourlab Ai makes it easier to go the right way.
In a short time, the concept of a “Show LUT” on set has become standard practice. I remember a time when external monitors didn’t even have the ability to display real-time LUTs. Now we can develop a nice lookup table before we step into the set and capture and light each image specifically for that look (referring to the LUT in our monitors).
This is a so-called “show LUT”. A show LUT is a LUT that you can use as a peek through the entire pipeline, from pre-production to post-production. A show LUT can give anyone a base color and feel for the intended visual tone.
Colourlab Ai just announced its new 1.3 updatewhich puts power in the hands of the developer and uses AI to create custom professional LUTs that can work across multiple camera platforms and applications.
This new update contains an addition to the “EL zone system” which was developed by Ed Lachman, ASC (Carol, Far from heaven), which provides an intuitive model for displaying exposure values with apertures, a standard that anyone who has exposed an image can understand. Colourlab Ai’s use of this new zone system is a great way for users to quickly assess the exposure of their scenes with 20 different types of cameras.
Also included in the update are HDR scopes, extended LUT export functions and a new dual view vectorscope.
For the broadcasters out there who Update also adds NDI supportwhich has gained momentum in several areas of the industry.
Colourlab Ai is currently only available for Mac and is available as a subscription for $ 49 per month or $ 490 annually.
