Color grading your footage is extremely important. So important, that many people even recognize and recall tv shows and movies by their color or ‘look’. When editing colors, it can be difficult to align your footage and find the right effects to match your shooting style.
Lookup tables, or LUTs, are a useful tool you can use to get started. Using LUTs can help you to create a look that matches the mood of your footage. They can bring out more colors and light detail from raw footage.
