    If so whats your methodology?
    Do you use resolve or Photoshop or another software?
    I've been dabbling with photoshop but want to see how other people have been doing it.

    I use Resolve,

    Most of my Luts I use as quick grades which only require some Gain and Whitebalance adjustment at the start of the chain. This makes it easy to quickly give a demo to a client of options for a more fine tuned grade or if I have any lower paid jobs which need less work/faster turnarounds.

    Some of them are to make it easy to transform the image from one type of camera to another - so that the remaining node chain can be the same for both cameras.

    I use Resolve for mine. I would usually spend a long time making a complicated series of nodes which get me to the result I like. Then try that same node chain on several other example scenes of varying light colour and quality. Bright scenes, dark scenes, high contrast, low contrast etc. Once I am sure the node chain seems to work well on them all - I boil it down into a 3D LUT file which I can easily apply later on.
