There’s a lot of misinformation regarding the use and application of LUTs. In this tutorial, you’ll not only learn what they are, but how to use them appropriately to give you the maximum control of your image during color grading.

So many LUTs so little time. This tutorial will show you some insanely fast workflows for previewing your LUTs and you’ll learn the best ways to apply them to groups of clips in your timeline.

There’s a LUT for That

Because many of today’s cameras shoot in either LOG or RAW formats, you’ll explore different approaches for normalizing your footage using Resolve’s built-in Color Management and some great 3rd-party tools to expand your creative options.

    Nice job, Jason. While I am familiar with the technical and creative uses for LUTs, I learned some great tips especially with using them in parallel and layer nodes with DaVincI Resolve. Overall, the presentation of this tutorial was clear and well placed.

    No surprise to me, I’ve just completed another excellent tutorial series from Ripple. As a big fan, and new user of DaVinci Resolve, I’m always on the look out for tutorials for Resolve. To date, I’ve purchased all but one of the tutorial series for Resolve from Ripple Training. This series on LUTs is no exception. Just when I thought I knew all I need to know about LUTs, Ripple comes along and drops this series on me. If you’re new, or old, to Resolve I highly recommend this tutorial series. What separates Ripple Training from other 3rd party tutorial developers, is the clear and concise instruction found in their tutorials. Always well paced, it is very easy to follow along each tutorial without feeling overwhelmed. Jason, the instructor for this series, clearly explains the process and doesn’t talk fast and loose like many other teachers I’ve come across. I’m sure I’ll be back again, in the future, picking up another Resolve training series from Ripple. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with Ripple.
