The Canon Cinema EOS C500 Mark II CLog2 to Rec709 Pro LUT pack is designed to help you save time and effort in post production.
This is a set of 17 Pro Grade Technical LUTs which should be applied to CLOG2 Footage ONLY.
These LUTs will also work with Canon RAW footage from the Canon Cinema EOS C500 Mark II.
This LUT pack work in DaVinci Resolve, FinalCut, and Premier Pro.
When applied to C500 Mark II CLog2 footage, it will convert the color space into Rec709 with a simple one click adjustment.
Once you apply the LUT your footage should be ready to use as is, or you can use the LUT as a base look to get your image moving toward your creative vision.
These technical LUTs were created paying close attention to keeping Blacks - BLACK, Whites Pollution Free, and Skin Tones True.
This Pro LUT Pack compensates for the over saturated magenta and red Canon colors by properly mapping all the primary colors to their correct targets before stylizing the image.
LUTs Included Included in the pack are:
Let's talk briefly about the inspiration and motivation for each of these LUTS:
2Tone - This LUT manipulates the colors of your scene to help emphasize your story and make the production feel like you had a much bigger crew which included a set designer and wardrobe designer while keeping skin tones true.
ARRI Alexa Lookalike - This LUT mimics the ARRI Alexa look and feel along with the benefits of lower contrast in gradients in highlights.
Broadcast - This LUT allow your clips to be ready for broadcast, web or streaming delivery.
Fantasy - This LUT allows clips to represent the modern feature fantasy or sci-fi film look which is great for indie filmmaking productions.
Feature - This LUT allows clips to represent the modern feature film look which is great for indie filmmaking productions.
HBO - This LUT allows clips to show characteristics of modern HBO episodic series.
Hipster - This LUT allows clips to show characteristics of the modern Hipster styles with lower contrast and blacks that are black yet unsaturated and very low contrast.
Horror - This LUT allows clips to show characteristics of modern Horror Feature Films with high contrast that retains details in gradients and dark areas of your pictures.
Mono - This LUT allows clips to emphasize a color to bring attention and focus to your storytelling through visuals. Think of this as a dream sequence or back-flash in your feature.
Netflix - This LUT allows clips to show characteristics of modern streaming episodic series and made for streaming features without the banding issues that many face.
Nostalgia - This LUT allows clips to bring back a feeling of film with big contrast that doesn't crush shadows, highlights that roll off gradually in a very pleasing way and skin tones that pop but make you remember the past in a romantic way.
OldSchool - This LUT allows clips to bring back feelings and memories of when features were shot on Film. Contrast is lowered in the highlights and dark areas to help preserve detail across the entire exposure.
PunchIt - This LUT allows clips quickly and effectively make a point in your storytelling. PunchIt suits Men best but if you're filming an MMA event or other strength athletes, this could be the best LUT for your application.
QCineTone - This LUT allows clips to add a layer of cinematic feeling, emotion, and texture while being ready for Broadcast, Web, or Streaming Delivery.
Sunny - This LUT allows clips shot outdoors, during golden hour, and in the Summer to have that little bit of extra texture and emotion that helps tell your story.
TANDO - This LUT allows clips to leverage the most effective color contrast combination in a cinematic way that won't get in the way of your storytelling without polluting your blacks or whites.
Urban - This LUT allows clips to add grit and feeling to your footage giving them street credit while maintaining the film and cinematic aesthetics.
Let's go through the suggested use for these technical LUTs.
It is important to note that these Technical LUTs expect two things.
1. You Nailed Exposure by not clipping any highlights or crushing any dark areas of your image.
2. You Nailed The White Balance or used a tool like a color checker to help you correct the white balance during post production.
Keeping that in mind please follow the suggested use for best results.
In DaVinci Resolve, I would recommend that the first node be used to adjust your exposure and white balance if needed and then add a second node where these technical LUTs will do their work.
In Adobe Premier these LUTs should be added in the first color tab or Layer followed by the necessary (if any) exposure and white balance adjustments.
In FinalCut Pro X these LUTs should be added after the exposure and white balance adjustments for best results.
I want to take a quick moment to address some commonly asked questions and answer them so that you can make an informed decision before committing to the LUT Pack:
Q. Will these LUTs work with Canon CLog2 files from the Canon C500 Mark II?
Q. Will these LUTs work with Canon RAW CLog2 files from the Canon C500 Mark II?
Q. Will these LUTs work with Canon CLog2 files from other Canon cameras?
Q. Will these LUTs work with Canon CLog3 files from the Canon C500 Mark II?
Q. Will these LUTs work with Canon CLog files from the Canon C500 Mark II?
Q. Will these LUTs work with Other Picture Profiles or versions of Clog?
A. No they will not!
Q. Will these LUTs work with Canon 8bit Log files from the previous generation Canon Cameras?
A. No they will not!
Q. What do I do if my white balance is off?
A. Adjust your white balance in a correction prior to the layer or node where you applied the technical LUT!
Q. My highlights are clipped when I apply the LUT, how do we fix this?
A. Adjust your exposure in a correction or node prior to where you applied the technical LUT!
Q. The saturation is too heavy handed for my taste, how do we fix this?
A. Use the Key Tool in Resolve, or lower the intensity of the LUT to taste or in a way that allow you to tell your story!
