Filmic Luts – Professional Pack Free Download
QUICK AND EASY TONE-MAPPING DIRECTLY FROM YOUR RENDER ENGINE OR IN POST- PRODUCTION
When we work with LWF using lineal render engines such as VRay, Corona Renderer, F- Storm, etc. We get as a result, an image with high dynamic range, that represents with great accuracy the physical properties of light. However this result is NOT photorealistic. To properly replicate the the behavior of a camera in an sRGB monitor using linear rendering tools, we need to use “tone-mapping”. In this task, the use of LUTs combined with the dynamic range compression tools of render engines, helps us to standardize the Look of our work and guarantees us consistent results in all our images.
I’ve designed this pack of 56 LUTs to help professionals and enthusiasts transform their flat and non-contrast renders, into photorealistic renders rich in detail, contrast, and color. Easily, directly in the render engine or in your preferred post-production application.
HOW TO USE THIS PACK
In order to successfully use this Pack, you need to combine some type of dynamic range compression such as “Reinhard Burn” in V-Ray or “Highlight Compression” in Corona Renderer with a contrast LUT. It’s also possible to replicate the output in any post-production application, such as: After Effects, Nuke or Photoshop. But remember, if you apply the LUT directly on a linear render without compression, the results will not be correct.
It’s important to apply our LUT BEFORE starting to lighten and render our image, if we apply our LUT on a picture with low luminosity, the result will not be satisfactory and we will get a dark image. With the LUT applied in the VFB, we proceed to do WB and contrast, .
