What is a LUT in Adobe Premiere Pro?

A LUT, or Look-Up Table, in Adobe Premiere Pro is a mathematical formula that modifies the color of an image or video. It is used to map one color space to another and is often used for color grading in post-production. LUTs can be used to achieve a specific visual style, correct color and exposure, or convert footage from one color space to another.

In Adobe Premiere Pro, LUTs can be applied to footage in the Lumetri Color panel. They can be used to apply a consistent look across multiple clips, scenes, or an entire project. LUTs can be created within Premiere Pro, imported from other software, or downloaded from various online sources. They are a powerful tool for filmmakers and video editors to enhance the visual aesthetics of their work.

How to use Input LUT in Adobe Premiere Pro?

Input LUT (Look-Up Table) in Adobe Premiere Pro is used to apply a color grade to a video or image. To use it, first, import your video or image into the software. Then, go to the "Color" workspace by clicking on "Color" at the top of the screen. This will open the Lumetri Color panel on the right side of the screen.

In the Lumetri Color panel, you will see a section called "Basic Correction". Under this section, there is an option called "Input LUT". Click on the dropdown menu next to it and you will see a list of different LUTs that you can apply to your video or image. Select the LUT that you want to use. You can adjust the intensity of the LUT using the "Intensity" slider under the "Creative" section. Remember to save your project regularly to avoid losing any changes.

Where to find Input LUT in Adobe Premiere Pro?

Why is my Input LUT not working in Adobe Premiere Pro?

There could be several reasons why your Input LUT is not working in Adobe Premiere Pro. One common issue could be that the LUT file format is not supported. Adobe Premiere Pro supports .cube and .look formats for LUTs. If your LUT file is in a different format, you may need to convert it to a supported format before you can use it.

Another possible reason could be that the LUT is not being applied correctly. Make sure that you are applying the LUT in the correct sequence and that you are using the correct settings. If you are still having trouble, it may be helpful to consult the Adobe Premiere Pro user guide or online forums for more specific troubleshooting advice. It's also possible that there might be a bug or issue with your specific version of Adobe Premiere Pro, so make sure your software is up to date.
