So im a bit confused about the use of LUT's.
In color i can import the standard LUT which comes with color which makes redlogfilm images appear to have proper gamma? again.
My confusion comes from that I can also achieve a better looking image by using a curve. My question is, are LUT's used to view the image while doing color work then removed before export and print to film? If so, seeing as i am exporting to dvd, blu-ray and HDCAM, should i just ignore LUT's and use a curve or am I getting this all completely wrong?
I did some reading on all of this but some of the answers were quite complicated and I'm still not sure.
Any help/explanation would be great.
