Working with LUTs in Premiere Pro CC 2015
If you’re installing ImpulZ™ for the first time make sure you select the Generic Installation which is going to deploy the LUTs to:
The Lumetri Color Panel is split up into multiple grading sections with the ability to add 3D LUTs at two different stages of the grade. This is an incredibly useful feature not only if the 3 Step Film Emulation Technique (ImpulZ Ultimate only) is an integral part of your color grading workflow.
To make use of the powerful cineon negative and positive print film emulations in ImpulZ Ultimate we recommend to apply a Camera Negative_CIN of your preferred film stock in the ‘Basic Correction’ section of the Lumetri Color Panel. To select a third party LUT like any VisionColor 3D LUT from ImpulZ click Input LUT -> Browse and navigate to the VisionColor/ImpulZ folder.
The second step involving ImpulZ™ is usually to apply a print film emulation that brings your footage back to an sRGB gamma (with proper contrast and saturation). You can learn all about this workflow in this in-depth article: Click here
We recommend injecting this secondary Print LUT in the ‘Creative’ section of the Lumetri Color Panel. That way all primary adjustments made in the ‘Basic Correction’ section are processed under the Print LUT which simulates a real film workflow and is going to yield accurate and realistic results.
To select a film print LUT from ImpulZ click Look -> Browse and navigate to the ‘Cineon Conversions’ in the VisionColor/ImpulZ folder.
Any secondary adjustments you make in the ‘Creative’, ‘Curves’, ‘Color Wheels’ and ‘Vignette’ tabs are processing the sum total of all adjustments made above including Input LUT, primary corrections and Print or ‘Look’ LUT. These global adjustments are ideal to fine tune your grade and give your own distinct look.
