I have played around with colour balancing and corrections using the built in apple tools in FCPX. I am now ready to add LUTs. However, I have had some problems.
Pixel Film Studio has some nice LUTs, but the problem I have is how they are installed and the reliability. When I bought the package, I had to perform the install three times for it to work (according to instructions). So I had to repeat. It worked, I updated a project with some LUTs, but when I went back, FCPX could not see the LUT menu so I had to install again. This had me worry. Obviously there is some issue now, but any upgrade could later render any LUTs in my projects unusable.
I am looking for LUTs paid or free where installation is as easy as adding free events or transitions. I don't mind paying for LUTs, but don't want the hassle of controlling software that can breakdown rending the LUTs useless later. Any recommendations? I am a prosumer. I do this for fun, not for money so there is not a huge budget. Thanks all.
Thanks - lots to think about. I like having everything built in one place. It won't come with any LUTs, but I can get some free ones to start. I tried Pixel Film Studios, but had issues where I had to reinstall often as the LUTs kept dropping from the menu.
