You might have a Node Tree in DaVinci Resolve that has multiple LUTs attached to it. What do you do if you want to create one LUT out of that Node Tree so you do not have to keep recreating it? In this movie, author Patrick Inhofer demonstrates how to condense a Node Tree with multiple LUTs into one LUT for future use in DaVinci Resolve.
- [Instructor] This shot that we've been working here…on the log timeline is actually very interesting…what we've done so far.…Take a look at it.…Break it down.…Let's turn off node number three and node number two.…We started by applying a technical LUT…here in node number one.…What was that LUT?…It was the Blackmagic cinema camera direct 709 LUT.…Kind of technical,…but really in the end it's a creative LUT.…If we don't like it,…we move on to something else.…Now we didn't like it,…but rather than moving on to something else;…we did a broad primary correction…using the offset to drop the exposure…to get the highlights and the shadows where we want,…rather than having these highlights blow out.…
So that's kind of interesting two moves;…and then on top of that,…we added this stylistic LUT that came from onset.…Now what if we want to take all of this…and shrink it down into one move,…into a single LUT?…Can we export LUTs of our color grades?…The answer is yes,…and it's as simple as coming to your shot…in a thumbnail timeline,…
Once you're familiar with the differences between log, raw, and flat recordings, explore two different methods for color correcting that footage. First, Patrick shows you how to color correct manually, using the traditional tools in DaVinci Resolve. Then, he explains how to use lookup tables (LUT), and discusses LUT strengths and limitations.
