Important Guidelines Before Using LUTs

You can find a variety of Creative LUTs available, crafted by our team of Filmmakers & Colorists.

  • 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.

Choose one of these 2 methods to get your LUTs to LumaFusion (Computer or iPhone):

Loading the LUT section in LumaFusion ready to import

LUTs currently need to be imported from the LumaFX clip editor. This can be done by following the steps below:

  • Double-tap on any video/photo clip in the timeline to open the LumaFX UI.
  • Tap on the 'Color & Effects' tool at the bottom of the LumaFX UI.
  • Press the cube icon in the top right panel.
  • You'll find the import button just below the library of effect presets.

Now from the Download link and importing the LUTs

  • Find our download link for the LUTs which will either be on the 'Thank You' page or in your emails, click the download link, then a pop up will appear to show options. You will see an option called 'Copy to iZip'. Now the zip folder will load into the app.
  • Unzip the folder in iZip.
  • Open up the folder of LUTs and find the LUTs inside. Select the little circle next to the LUT name so it shows a tick inside (for some reason LumaFusion only allow importing 1 LUT at a time from iZip).
  • Press the 'Share' icon then send LumaFusion.
  • LumaFusion should open up automatically and you will see the LUT imported in the 'User LUTs' section in the top right.
