In this movie, we are going to pull up Dead…Man's lake ungraded, and regrade it this time using a LUT.…And why are we going to do that?…Because this film was originally recorded on an Arri Alexa as Log C.…So, this is a perfect example of a film where we might…want to apply a lot to help us get the color grade started.…If you have access to the exercise files, open up exercise file 10_03_logandluts.…Before we get started on this, let's just take a quick look here at the timeline and…the format default, and you will notice there is an Alexa format default.…
The thing is, is this wasn't ARRIRAW and that's…what this pull down menu is referring to, ARRIRAW.…This was actually recorded to ProRes 444 as Log C,…therefore, this doesn't really apply to the footage we're working…on now.…So, let's jump back into the LUT tab and let's apply the LUT Look layer.…And right off the bat it looks…(LAUGH)…terrible.…Well, that's because it's giving us the wrong LUT.…it's the CineSpace LUT, and let's jump up instead.…
There are to AlexaLUTs that ship with SpeedGrade CC.…
