LUTS: Look Up Tables

For viewing directly on the set and for color correction in post, look up tables (LUTs) are used. Generally speaking LUTs are used to manipulate image data. A LUT transforms a digital signal to adjust the sensitivity, gamma and provide a color correct monitoring input.
 
To download the proper LUT for your production, we created this page to select the appropriate LUT you need from out of the many combinations that are available. These LUTs are provided as supporting tools for production. As specific needs vary by project and 3rd party LUT formats are subject to change, we recommend that you test these LUTs before using them in production.
 
Please note that generating individual LUT or complete packages can take up to two minutes.
We have divided the numerous choices into four categories:

On set LUTs

Intended to convert Log C originated footage and normalize them for viewing through on-set devices like monitors, recorders and HD playback systems. Please note that output format will be in legal range only. This tool will generate LUTs or LUT packages that cover the entire range of exposure indices available with the ALEXA.

Dailies LUTs

Intended to convert Log C originated footage in ProRes or HD SDI format and normalize them for systems utilized in the dailies process. Please note that output format will be in legal range only. This tool will generate LUTs or LUT packages that cover the entire range of exposure indices available with the ALEXA.

Post Production LUTs

Intended to convert Log C originated footage to specific formats most advantageous to your specific workflow. This tool will generate LUTs or LUT packages that cover the entire range of exposure indices available with the ALEXA.

Advanced Postproduction LUTs

Intended to convert all possible ALEXA originated formats to the format most advantageous to your specific workflow. This tool will generate LUTs or LUT packages that cover the entire range of exposure indices available with the ALEXA.

Look Files

Intended to add customizations contained in an ARRI Look File to standard Log C-to-video processing, by uploading the Look File to the LUT generator. This tool will generate LUTs or LUT packages that cover the entire range of exposure indices available with the ALEXA.
