What is a LUT?
A LUT, or lookup table, is an array of preselected values used in movie colour correction to map colours from the original input footage to the desired colours in the final output. Colour correction is performed by looking up input colors and assigning them new RGB values based on the data in the table. To be able to correct saturation or hue requires a 3D LUT, in which each combined RGB value maps to a single combined value in the table.
Regardless of whether you use the Nikon 3D LUT or another LUT you will need to colour grade your N-Log video footage.
Nikon’s N-Log 3D LUT is available for the Rec. 709 colour space and makes colour grading a snap in Adobe Premier Pro CC, Apple Final Cut Pro X or Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 15. This LUT enables adjustment of brightness, saturation and hue.
