As I wrote in my previous article, 3DLUT Creator is a magnificent piece of software for color grading, and it has become an essential part of my coloring processes both for video and still work. There are now more buying options for those who don't need all the extra features that some might. Meet the Grading Edition.
With a limited set of features geared at grading only, it includes:
- Curves (with special curves)
- Look Manager with sample LUT's included
- Auto Match Colors to Reference
- Program Presets
- Image Saving
- Integration With Other Applications
- A/B Grid (one of my favorite and most powerful tools)
I graded this image below in just seconds with the A/B Grid. I do use the Pro version, but the A/B is available to the entry-level edition.
With the three levels of the program currently available, this is the entry level and least expensive way to get started with LUT color grading. The Pro edition is $249, Standard at $199, and Grading Edition at $99. Through August 20, 2017 the summer sale offers an additional 20% off.
This is my favorite program for color work, and this is a great opportunity for folks to get into this great technology.
You can review the buying options on the 3DLUT Creator website.
