  1. I apologize in advance for this post being so long. Screenshots of the color grade and video links are at the bottom of the post. --- A few years ago, I ran across a Vimeo, under the name Organik Cineworks. They are a Hungarian couple that creates wedding videos. I saw one of their videos, and loved their editing style, so I followed them. Now, I am obsessed with their color grading. Let me just say, they are SO difficult to get in contact with, because a) They're Hungarian, and b) They probably don't have time to answer someone's questions about their grading. HOWEVER, after emailing and messaging them through their social medias, I finally got a response. To summarize, the couple said this: We grade using LUTs in Lumetri, Premiere Pro, but cannot say which LUTs we are using. We have different presets of a LUT to fit different lighting conditions. I then said that I understood, and asked if they could forward me the scopes from one of their videos. The scopes I received are also at the bottom of this post. I changed the subject and asked about the settings they use on their a6300. I have the same set-up as them: All of our films were captured using the a6300. We shoot in PP6 Cine 4, and find it to be just as beautiful as S-log without the need of constant high ISO. We do not use noise reduction in post. Finally, I decided to shoot my shot once more and inquire about the LUTs they use, because I literally. cannot. find. them. anywhere. I had searched for hours, so I started to wonder if they were specifically "wedding LUTs", or maybe they were LUTs not available online for purchase, and Organik Cineworks made the LUTs themselves. I also found similar ones to theirs (White in Revery and Kreativ wedding LUTs), so I asked if I was on the right track. Here's the response I received: White in Revery and Kreativ LUTs are indeed similar to the ones we use πŸ˜‰ Yes, it's a wedding LUT that wasn't made by us, but we really can't say more than that. I left it at that, and really didn't want to bother them anymore. I then went into Premiere Pro and tried my hardest to replicate it myself. The result is something that reminds me of their crushed blacks, desaturated greens, white highlights, and general warm, earthy vibe, but isn't exactly IT. I am a huge perfectionist, and cannot accept the fact that it isn't just like theirs. Here is a screenshot from my attempt: https://imgur.com/a/UqWA1qH I ended up using Kreativ's "Osmara" LUT as a base, and made some minor tweaks. Below are the scopes they sent me and the screenshots of the grading. If you would like to watch the videos instead, here are the links to a few of their recent ones where the grading is consistent: VIDEO LINKS https://vimeo.com/311253998 https://vimeo.com/293844993 https://vimeo.com/294623662 SCOPES https://imgur.com/a/05SW8W5 SCREENSHOTS Here is a link to my Imgur album with all screenshots. --- Please let me know if you recognize these colors and know what LUTs they're using. I get roasted every time I post this on Reddit. Those commenting say these colors are very generic and can be found in nearly any LUT pack. I disagree. I've never seen this exact grading style before. I normally see the generic orange-teal, while this is more of a brown and desaturated green. I know a LUT is simply a base for grading mostly log footage, and of course can be tweaked. I also realize that just because I may find out the name of the LUT they use, doesn't mean I will achieve the exact look their videos have. There are many other factors to take into account. However, I genuinely am curious to know where they're getting these beautiful colors from at this point, and have been wracking my brain combing through LUTs online. I'm not trying to copy them, as I rarely do wedding videos and have my own film style myself. I just would like to post and see if anyone recognizes this LUT. Thanks πŸ™‚
  2. After the success of the original BozBMDFilm to Rec709 LUT for all Blackmagic Cinema Cameras, there were many requests from fellow filmmakers for a new Rec709 LUT for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K (P4K). I had no intentions of creating one, but as I'm always looking for ways to simply my own work flow I thought, what the hell. Features: Custom Cine Curve Organic Color Values Balanced Saturation Preserved Shadow Detail Preserved Highlight Detail * Softer Highlight Roll Off Download Page: https://bulentozdemirfilms.wordpress.com/bozbmdfilm_p4k-to-rec709-lut/

  5. I have been having an issue when color grading lately with the C300. After the grade, most blacks that are below 40 IRE seem to be artifacting like crazy on youtube. Whereas I don't see this from other people's work. Ive tried these encode settings in adobe media encoder, Quicktime MOV, h264 55'000 kbps 1920 x 818 Quicktime MOV, h264 35'000 kbps 1920 x 818 Quicktime MOV, h264 25'000 kbps 1920 x 818 Quicktime MOV, Prores 444 1920 x 818 But all of them just aren't cutting it and I dont know what I'm missing. My blacks are generally not brought down to 0 because the director wants a low contrasty look and some scenes were shot very dimly with only one LED to light the scene. On the other hand, we've lit darker scenes with several 1k's and Litepanel LEDs and while the highlights and midtones held up the blacks still artifacted hard. Here is an unlisted link to a test video I made. Please don't share outside of the community. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d3WQT4hcN4 Any and all info would be much appreciated!
  6. I am planning on shooting a short film with my T4i, planning on grading it black and white in post. I know that lighting for black and white is different than color and requires some more contrast (because color is no longer a factor). What do you think the best way to gauge what it will look like in black and white, short of metering and hoping?
