3D LUT for Mac

This guide shows how to apply or add your 3D LUT in the video.

A Look-Up Table (LUT) uses math instructions to replace a color with another one in the video. It’s like a color grading preset as part of the Digital Intermediate process. It is extensively used in the movie production chain. The feature can give your video a unique style.
