    Too bad it's for Mac only.

    Couldn't you do an agnosstic OFX plugin for Luts browsing ?

    That all really depends on what the look up table actually does.

    Other types of custom look up tables can also work but they have to be specifically designed.

    Look up table does not have to "break" the DR. As with all, it greatly depends on how it is designed and used.

    After our initial release for Mac we'll look at what it requires to port to Windows. If you're interested in staying up to day I suggest signing up here:

    I didn't say it would. I said the grade never would, since you have the ability to tweak the correction anywhere you want. For those working in alternate color management, particularly ACES, LUTs aren't the answer. Powergrades (particularly custom ones for specific situations) can and do work, since the user can dig in and change both the input and output parameters and what the ultimate effect is with the given material.

    My comments on LUT preview still hold: you can already do this in a custom Powergrade bin. You just have to create one grade per LUT, store it, name it, and then recall it as needed. But... in many cases, I think a Powergrade designed from scratch is more flexible, at least for the kind of work I do.

    Thanks for the clarification and your input.

    Considering your context I agree, but as it is important not to throw away the creative potential of a full grading workflow by relying on LUT based creative look choices, it is also important not to generalize and go to the other extreme and throw away the potential of a lookup table based signal shaping potential, utilized in conjunction with particular grading tools.

    There are many routes which allow integration, they just require a slight modification in methodology for proper usage to enable harvesting greater practical, productive and creative potential.

    Denver, normally I would add something like this to Feature Requests thread. But since you've created a solution, I don't want to in any way impede your excellent work. ;)
