Hi everyone,

I think I have a some basic understanding on how LUTs or film stocks work in general, however it gets very confusing with all the variety of film emulation LUTs available and searching in Google or through thousands of topics doesn't really help. 

My question is how these LUTs actually work and how are they created? Are they a combination of negative stocks and print stocks? For example I see a lot of films shot on Kodak Vision 5207 and printed on 2383. According to Film Convert "FilmConvert applies a combined emulation for print, negative and a viewing simulation for projected film. Isn't the Kodak 5207 very different from the 2383 as far as the colorimetry is concerned?

Thank you.

Ideally your negative stock LUT would still keep the image in log gamma and then you'd color-correct with a print display LUT. But I suppose for a smaller project where you aren't creating deliverables in multiple display formats and don't want a color-corrected log master, you could combine them.
