The One LUT. Simple.
This LUT takes the confusion and guess work out of getting natural colours from the BMPCC4K.
I found Blackmagic Design’s recommended BMPCC4K LUT rather underwhelming.
The highlight roll off felt too severe, the skin tones were out, it added an odd ‘brown-ness’ to the image, it didn’t reflect what I was seeing on set.
When I shoot with the Alexa, I use the one Arri Rec 709 LUT. It just works.
I performed extensive tests against the Alexa to create one LUT for the BMPCC4K that achieves a comparable colour response, accurate skin tones and smoother highlight rolloff.
I use it in camera and in the grade for consistent, natural results. No LUT packs. No snake oil. Just the one LUT.
