So, initially, we have to import our videos. For importing videos, we have to click "File," then "Import Media," and inside it, "Import Media Files." The second way to import video is quite easy. Here we’ve to double-click.
So today, I'm going to use "Stock Media," where you'll get non-copyright videos or photographs. Here we have "Pexels”, “Giphy”, “Pixabay”, and “Unsplash”. You can download any of these videos to use immediately for your project.
So, from all these, I’m going to import one video onto my timeline. Now, for LUT video import, we will navigate into "Effects." From the effect panel, we have to go into the last folder, which is "Filmstock," and here is our video LUT pack.
So first, we're going to try the "Portrait LUT Pack." Now in Portrait LUT Pack, we'll get several LUT packs which are 17 in total. It's very simple to use a Portrait LUT Pack. We have to drag and drop it onto our main video. So let's see the output of the video first. So this is before, and this is after.
Here, we can use LUT in two ways. The first way is to apply the LUT to the video directly. The second way is to use an adjustment layer for utilizing the LUT video without disturbing our main video.
Now we'll see the second LUT, whose name is "Nature LUT Pack." As you can see, here I have applied two different LUT packs on a single video. The output of the first LUT pack is something like this, and the output of the second LUT pack is something like this.
Now let's see the third LUT pack, whose name is "Instagram LUT Pack." Within Instagram LUT Pack, we can see many individual LUT. In this example, I have applied more than one filter on a single video, and its output is here.
