  1. Hey Guys,
    awesomne job on the tutorials! : ) quick question, I am trying to get a LUT ofr FCX.. and for AE…
    I am a bit confused about this. I am using the cinestyle,(technicolor), for my 5D3… I herd there are other options too, now in case I keep this one, and I want to make the best out of the “cine style” where do I get the LUT and how to I take it to FCX? Regarding AE, does it come with its own LUT? or I have to download one also.

    Do you suggest other styles for DSLR’s besides Cinestyle?
    what it gets me confused is that I have to go from Techniclor and then to Red Giant? to download some stuff from them?

    Ok, looking forward to hear from you soon…

    Thank you

    1. Hi Gabriel,

      Technicolor makes the Cinestyle, which is a profile for your camera, along with a recommended Look-Up Table (LUT) file you can use to help with your colour correction.

      Red Giant makes the LUT buddy, which allows you to import LUTs in Adobe After Effects or Adobe Premiere. The LUT buddy can work with the Cinestyle LUTs, or any other LUT out there.

      As for FCX, I haven’t used it yet, so I’m not sure which plugins are required to import LUTs for it.

      From the research I did, Cinestyle seems like the best profile for Canon. There are others out there which also aim at flattening the image, but Cinestyle is my favourite.

      So what you will need is the Cinestyle from Technicolor, which comes with a .LUT file. Then you need some plugin to apply the LUT, such as Red Giant’s LUT Buddy.

      I hope this helps clarify things. If you have more questions, let me know!

      Have a great day,


      P.S. I heard rumours that the next version of Adobe Premiere might support LUTs natively.
