Not one but two new PictureFX Updates in One Day!
Yes, you may have noticed while visiting the Fresh Lut’s website that there were also PictureFX Luts.
Well, for the past few weeks I’ve been busy converting existing PictureFX PNG film simulations to a different format HaldClut, which made it possible to create much smaller Lut files – and then much smaller cube files obtained from them.
I have already converted and uploaded the most downloaded film simulations on my own website to the Fresh Lut’s website.
Of course I’m at the very back of the list, but the easiest way to find them is by typing in the search function “Browse Luts” and then on “Name” – PictureFX – the search box is case sensitive, so only in lowercase or other do not give the correct result.
Ok then, our second update for today : the new PictureFX Perfect Sunset LUT was created by combining an existing HaldClut (PNG) – namely my PFX Provia – and Color Mapping of very specific color oriented photos – in this case a photo by Nuno Obey from West Java Indonesia (instagram nunoobey) White Rowboat @ https://www.pexels.com/ – Thank you Nuno !
The technique : I used RawTherapee and Darktable.
Rawtherapee for creating the special HaldClut based on my PFX Provia presets & Darktable for adding the typical Sunset Glow via Color Mapping.
Converted via IWLTBAP to 3DLut .Cube
Format : 3DLut 64x64x64 .Cube – usable in most image editing programs.
Very important :
To obtain the best result it is sometimes necessary to adjust the strength, but also the “Blend Mode”.
Depending on the photo and/or the subject, this can cause very large differences.
Below a few examples, this time one at 70% with the same Blend Mode as one at 100%, and one with a different Blend Mode
Blend Mode : Hardlight 70%
Blend Mode : Pinlight
Blend Mode : Hardlight 100%
As you can see, three completely different results, and for an even more subtle effect, try adjusting the strength in your editor as well.
This film simulation can (currently) only be downloaded via Fresh Luts, and therefore only as 3DLut. De Lut is completely free to download and use in any way you wish.
Would you like the HaldClut version (PNG) ? – send me a message, and I’ll send you a link.
PictureFX Perfect Sunset
Compatible with most editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop (CS6 and +) Adobe After Effects (CS6 and +) Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6 and +) DaVinci Resolve , Affinity Photo and of course Darktable.
The list is too long to list them all here.
