LUT FEATURES

  • FALSE COLOR LUT

    Includes false color LUTs tuned for the A7S III and FX3. Nail your exposure easily every time you hit record.

  • CLEAN CONVERSION LUTS

    This is NOT a creative LUT pack. As such, color is very clean and neutral. Luminance adjustments are gentle and will not destroy your image.

  • IMPROVED COLOR

    When compared to Sony's stock conversion LUT, these LUTs have improved color including a yellow correction, skin shift and a more pleasing luminance curve.

  • EXPOSURE SHIFT TOOL

    LUT Pack includes overexposure shifts by 0 to 2 stops allowing you to get a cleaning image without manually adjusting luminance in post.

  • SKIN TONE SHIFT TOOL

    Each LUT has a skin shift option allowing you to fine tune the hue of skin with one click. Leave skin as is, or choose from three red shift strengths.

  • MULTIPLE CAMERAS SUPPORTED

    LUTs were created specifically for the Sony A7S III and Sony FX3 when filming in S-Log3 to preserve the dynamic range while improving color.

LUT PACK OVERVIEW

Clean, natural conversion LUTs for the Sony A7S III and FX3.

This LUT pack includes a false color LUT for use with camera monitors on set and 25 grading LUTs.

Using these LUTs, you can convert S-Log3 to a pleasing Rec.709 image and make quick adjustments to exposure and skin tones.




FALSE COLOR LUT

The false color LUT only displays three colors:

  • Red = Highlight Clip
  • Dark/Light Green = Correct Skin Exposure
  • Purple = Black Clip


This means at a glance you can see if your subject is correctly exposed while also seeing clipped parts of your image if any.

GRADING LUTS

The grading LUTs can be used to achieve very pleasing color and will correct several issues with the stock Sony technical LUTs.

These LUTs ARE NOT creative LUTs. Color and contrast are natural and clean. These LUTs are designed to quickly get your image 90% complete while also improving color.

Sony’s stock S-Log3 LUT have a few issues I’ve always found myself fixing:

  1. Yellow and warm tones are too close to green.
  2. Blues lean toward magenta
  3. Skin looks sickly

Rather than spend time correcting every shot, I created these LUTs to speed up my post workflow and have added two additional features which are detailed below.

All the LUTs in this pack have the same base corrections. These include rotating each color slightly to correct unpleasing colors. Mainly yellow.

The biggest difference can be seen in skin tones and other natural elements in your shots like grass, trees and warm tones.

EXPOSURE SHIFT

Each grading LUT has two numbers signifying exposure shift. This allows you to overexposure your footage (to improve noise performance) and grade those shots easily. There are 5 exposure LUT levels to choose from:

  • 0-0 - No exposure shift
  • 0-5 - For shots overexposed by 0.5 stop (or half a stop)
  • 1-0 - For shots overexposed by 1 stop
  • 1-5 - For shots overexposed by 1.5 stops
  • 2-0 - For shots overexposed by 2 stops


These exposure shifts allow you to easily compensate for overexposures without having to spend as much time correcting shots manually. Simply find the LUT that works best with the exposure of your clip and the LUT will apply the shift and convert to Rec.709 in one click.

SKIN TONE SHIFTS

Each LUT has a skin shift option available in five strengths:

  • Base - No skin color shift
  • Skin1 - Very minimal skin shift
  • Skin2 - Minimal skin shift
  • Skin3 - Medium skin shift
  • Skin4 - Strong skin shift


These skin color shifts take the red in skin tones and shifts it toward orange. This can been seen on a vectorscope as reds rotating toward the skin tone line on a vector scope.
