Color Lookup for Photoshop and Adobe Media Encoder: Setting the Mood with Color

Video description

Create your own collection of Lookup Tables (LUTs) for Photoshop and video rather than buying from a third party. This video will explain what a Look or Lumetri LUT is, how to create these tables from adjustment layers and apply them successfully as a new single adjustment layer in Photoshop, or reuse them in Adobe Media Encoder for short video clips.

The tutorial starts with an overview of LUTs, its history, usage, kinds, color modes, file formats and what Adobe programs use or can create LUTs. You will also find out why you should create your own LUTs. Next, you will learn about best practices when creating a LUT and how to group the adjustment layers correctly as well as look at how you can apply your LUT as a color lookup adjustment layer in Photoshop and further modifications and settings you can apply to that adjustment layer. Finally, you will learn to apply your LUT file to a video clip or stitched clips in Media Encoder. You will also find some advice on where to store your LUT files to maintain the same linkage.
