    Hello,

    since people were asking me how to create nice skin tones, cinematic look etc... I've tried to build a LUT.
    https://vimeo.com/user330487

    This is my first attempt creating a Lut,
    used BMC film LOG as input.

    My attempt was to create a cinematic look.
    Output is contrasty (strong s-curve), rich colored, with teal shadows, while keeping the greens as natural as possible and orange skin tones (very film like)
    Hope, you like it

    feel free to use it for your own projects.

    Looking forward to your own results.

    Here are some samples:

    2 nodes 1_1.6.1.jpg2 nodes 2_1.4.2.jpg2 nodes 3_1.2.2.jpg2 nodes 4_1.1.5.jpg
    Its quite a nice LUT! Its not as harsh as some others and it doesn't push it too far towards the Teal/Orange style.

    In these images, they are graded from RAW stills I shot.
    1st node reduces the highlights a bit and adds a bit of contrast, the 2nd just contains the LUT.

    Thanks!

    You've got to be joking. I'm going to assume that you are. Teal and orange looks revolting! Was there ever a modern classic film that had a teal and orange grade?

    What if he isn't? Would you feel something then?

    I like the Teal/Orange look.

    It's just a matter of taste. Teal and Orange is what most people associate with film look. Some of the examples on this page are cruel (Transformers especially!) others are fine.
    My LUT doesn't colorize as much as many of these examples, because input differs too much.

    Please try it before judging.

    No. I anticipated the possibility, but it's more important to let my opinion be known.

    I really disslike the Teal/Orange look

    I appreciate that you have put time into the grades, but I'm sure you'll also appreciate my honest opinion.

    The orange wouldn't be so bad in a shot such as a sunset where the skin-tone reflects the light in which it's set. But with a teal, blue or green tinged background It looks unnatural and the entire image looks sickly.

    Teal and orange are complimentary colours, but the word complementary is a misnomer. Really they are contrasting colours. They Jar with each other.

    You say your examples aren't that extreme, but there are weird bright teal patches all over the first examples:

    In the first image they are in the tree line to the far top right and above the guys backside, and also in the highlights of the leaves.
    In the second image along the edge of the couch shadow to the left and in the shadow areas of the guys vest, and in the highlights of the couch itself.
    In the third image, again along the tree line, on the back of the guys neck and on the shadow of his hand.

    It looks like extreme chromatic aberration.

    You are obviously free to colour however you like, but I wouldn't like someone new to colouring see threads like this and think this is the cool new look that everyone's doing that they absolutely must must have without at least seeing a counter argument to the style.
