Gradients and targets for experiments

Colors of RGB space

 

There are two gradient, in both the Hue changes across the horizontal axis. On the left lightness changes across the vertical axis, on the right — saturation. The gradient is used to analyze the quality of color conversions: color posterization is clearly visible after you apply your LUT. It also allows you to analyze the form of the color bo6dy shape of the working color model of the 3D LUT Creator.

Gradients

 

The file consists of 7 gradients of the main colors: Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue, Magenta and Gray. These gradients when are loaded in the program 3D LUT Creator allow to realize color distribution on A/B and C/L color grids depending on the selected color space model of 3D LUT Creator. With the help of them you can see the location of Saturation peaks for the individual colors in different color models.

Linear gradient

 

This is a gradient of shades of gray in which the brightness varies linearly. You cannot get this gradient in Photoshop. It can be done manually or programmatically. Or you can download it here :) Waveform tool in the 3D LUT Creator in conjunction with a Linear gradient allows you to analyze the work of 3D LUT Creator adjustments, photoshop adjustment layers and other plugin filters by replacing them with the RGB-curves.

 

Complex Linear gradient

 

The gradient consists of several linear gradients in different channels: in the Red channel there is a vertical linear gradient, in Green and Blue channels there are horizontal linear gradients. Waveform tool in the program 3D LUT Creator, combined with the complex linear gradient is used to determine the type of color correction: single-dimensional or three-dimensional. The single-dimensional color correction can be replaced by RGB-curves, three-dimensional — only by 3D LUT.

Color wheel

 

The color wheel allows you to evaluate the impact of the created LUT or other  LUTs to different color shades. Also it can be used to observe the work of a Channel Mixer in the RGB-matrix and Camera Calibration modes. The color wheel is useful for creating color schemes and a certain color harmony.

Advanced Color wheel

 

Standart color wheel is complemented by the same color gradient but with lower saturation. Advanced Color wheel allows you to control less saturated and pastel colors including skin tones.

Hald Images

Hald is a graphical representation of 3D LUTs in the form of color tables which contain all of the color gradations of 3D LUT. If the Hald is loaded into editing software and a color correction is applied to it you can use the 3D LUT Creator to convert your Hald into 3D LUT and apply it in the photo or video editor.

Technical 3D LUTs

This category contains technical LUTs for adjusting the exposure and white balance of the Log-encoded video. This procedure should be performed before development LUTs in case your shot has incorrect exposure or white balance settings. After applying these LUTs your video remains in the same Log profile but with changed exposure or white ballance. If you perform the exposure compensation and white balance after you developed Log-material you will loose a part of the tonal range (loose details in the highlights or shadows), or get an picture with a "twisted" color temperature (white balance in the shadows, midtones and highlights will be different).

 

LUTs perform exposure compensation +/- 2 stops with one step increment and white balance adjustmet (temperature and tint). To fine-tune the effect you can adjust the opacity (blending) of the adjustment layer with the LUT.

 

LUTs are divided by cameras' Log-profiles.  Find what Log-profile your camera uses and download the needed LUTs below.
