how to install luts in filmora

Filmora is one of the fastest growing editing software for beginners and intermediates. It boasts some professional features while yet being one of the easiest user interfaces to use.

If you are unsure what a LUT is, in simple terms, LUTs are color presets that are compatible in nearly all editing software. All they simply do is carry a set of color values, changing one set of colors to another. They are used by many professionals for tasks including color correcting, color grading, monitor calibration, transferring colors between software and much more.

Here you can find a variety of conversion and creative LUTs, crafted by our team of Filmmakers and Colorists.

Important Guidelines Before Using LUTs

  • Ensure white balance is correct when using LUTs! This will dramatically change the look of the LUT.
  • Ensure your exposure is correct when using LUTs. You can use a histogram to help in camera or editing software.
  • When using LUTs, your footage may need small adjustments to get optimal results, such as exposure, saturation, contrast, etc. depending on your preference.
  • Shooting conditions such as lighting, weather, locations etc. can vary which can drastically affect a LUTs look. Some LUTs will work better in different scenarios. It’s best practice to experiment with which LUTs work best for your style and scenes.
