LUTs are one of the best ways a videographer has in order to develop a style and start doing something unique. Because of this, it’s very important to know how to use LUTs in Grass Valley’s Edius.

Finding your style can be hard, but with the right LUTs and editing tools on hand, you will be able to create something spectacular, in a very short time.

Good rules to follow BEFORE applying a LUT

  • Ensure white balance is corrected before applying the LUT. This is important.
  • Ensure your exposure is correct. Expose your image so the Histogram is centered.
  • It’s better to under-expose your footage, than over-expose. (Safer to enhance the darks as you cannot recover blown-out highlights).
  • Lower the ISO, the cleaner/better the image quality. High ISO = Noise.
  • In general on most cameras, it is good practise to have the sharpness level at the lowest. This gives the cleanest image when using LUTs and sharpness can be added easily in post if wanted.

As every video is different (exposure, white balance, etc.), small adjustments are recommended to achieve an optimal result. Again, please ensure your White Balance is correct before applying a LUT. This can drastically change the LUTs look.

How To Use LUTs In Edius

Edius is a very straight forward software you can use for video editing and in it, you basically have everything you need. When it comes to LUTs, this one is a little more complicated.

1. Download and unzip your LUTs

In order to be able to load new LUTs, you first need to download some packs you like and extract them to an easy-to-reach location. The software will only load unzipped files, and you may want to keep track of all the LUTs you have.

2. Open the “Color Correction” tab

In order to add a LUT, you first need to find the 'Color Correction' tab From there, you can load all the files you need when it comes to presets and look-up tables.

3. Apply a “Primary Color Correction” effect

What you need to do now is drag and drop the 'Primary Color Correction' effect on your footage.

4. Change The 'Destination LUT'

In order to select your new LUT, you may want to open the settings of the effect you just applied, and change its destination to the file you extracted in the first step.
