Color Grading with inMotion: LUT Loader in Motion 5
What is a LUT?
A LUT is a Lookup Table that contains a mathematical formula for modifying an image. The LUT changes every pixel’s color to the corresponding color indicated by the table.
By manipulating each pixel, LUT’s can change each color range differently, giving the user more control over their look.
