3D LUT Creator Demo for Windows
By downloading you are agreeing to the "End user license agreement".
In the Demo version you can not save images and LUTs. Also, sending LUTs to Photoshop is disabled. Otherwise, the Demo is a fully functional program (including PRO tools). In addition to this, the Demo has a library of free LUTs and program presets. If you need to see how it would work with your video, you can save a preset with your program settings (menu File>Save preset…) and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then forward your LUT in .CUBE format.
A/B grid allows the user to change the color of an object in just few clicks; by dragging the desired color on the grid to the desired hue and saturation without affecting other colors. In this case color gradients remain smooth because A/B grid does not work on a mask and acts like smooth curves in Photoshop. Hue and saturation of color change regardless of brightness.
C/L grids allow to control contrast within specific color. C/L grids enable to set the specific colors shade within one color depending on its brightness. Also this tool is very useful for making teal&orange grading.
VOLUME allows you to add accents of brightness to subjects in the image depending on their color. It also highlights the main subject in only one click.
2D-Curves are side projections of RGB cube that represents 3DLUT. 2D-Curves give you great opportunities for making different color tonings for your images and videos.

3D LUT Creator developer, photographer
I shoot and edit my own photos. Quite often in my workflow I want to use a certain color in the photo, but the Lightroom and Photoshop tools do not allow me to do that. I have designed a new way to work with colors. I imagined how I can change color by curving color space, but there were no tools that would allow me to do that.
Then I decided to create a program that would allow me to operate with color just as I imagined it. That is how I came up with a new grid, based on the LAB color model. Later, I realized that the LAB color model is not the best option for working with photos, and I came up with my own color models. I also added in a lot of other tools, which did not exist before and they are all unique.
3D LUT Creator is a must have for all photo and video editors, filmmakers and colorists, for amateurs or professionals. It deserves to be much better known. Once the software is well in your hands, you will discover how easily you can adjust more than just colors. After a few hours of training your coloring skills will be at a higher level.
The accuracy is so excellent and the possibilities are almost unlimited, thanks to all the powerful functions available. As the 3D LUT Creator exports LUTs, the workflow with Premiere Pro, Photoshop, DaVinci Resolve or even FCPX is extremely easy and fast. Definitely one of the most useful softwares I've bought so far.
I'm a professional photographer who is shooting fashion models, interiors, portraits and so on. From the beginning I knew how I wanted my photos to look, but it was very hard to do. It took forever to color grade a single photo using masks, converting it to LAB, going back to RGB... I often wanted more precision, but in the end I had to be satisfied with plain editing as I had to deliver photos quickly.
Then I started looking at color grading in movies, and creating 3DLUTs when I discovered a beta version of 3D LUT Creator. I bought it immediately and started to play with it. I was thrilled by how well it worked and by the fact that I was able to edit a picture in a minute, much faster than it takes in other programs. It was so intuitive to work with, that you just know what to do immediately.
Now I'm getting into videos too; I'm shooting music videos, promotion videos etc. It works the same as for pictures, I don't have to learn anything new. I just make the grade in 3D LUT Creator and apply it to a video or a photo, and it still has the style I want.
Now I can't imagine working without it, and I'm so grateful for having it. 3D LUT Creator enables me to have the final image that I'm proud of and repeat the process every day.

The program helps out in situations with low-quality lighting, with which another software can't cope.
Owner of the Solstice retouching agency
3D LUT Creator is a very powerful program that allows for complete control of colors that would be very hard to do with Photoshop's tools alone. For fashion and beauty retouching, this has been really helpful. The ability to select specific colors and modify their luminosity and hue values really make it simple to get the exact colors you want.
The best part is the amount you can actually pull colors without seeing banding or posterization. Color shifts retain the fidelity of edges between two areas without seeing any artifacts. This versatility can be used to change color and luminosity of clothes, environments, skin tones, and so much more! 3D LUT Creator has come in handy when I really needed something more powerful than Photoshop's tool set.
Director, cameraman, founder of GOLDFINCHWORKS
Our company produces commercials, industrial videos, music videos and VR videos. When 3D LUT Creator just appeared, we did not quite understand the field of its application. The LUT was used as a tool for creating common color accent or for technical purposes. But after we saw 3D LUT Creator at work — everything fell into place.
The main advantage of 3D LUT Creator for us is the capacity to work with complex materials: high noise level, numerous cameras, and features of material conversion. While the mask for various parameters in other programs, such as DaVinci Resolve, can't accurately select a part of the image and thus creates artifacts, 3D LUT Creator can create masks with smooth edges to perform such operations. Also, it becomes possible to manage colors in any ways, which allows to expand the arsenal of creative solutions.
We optimized our processes so that 3D LUT Creator became one of our main tools. We use 3D LUT Creator in the preparation for color correction, clarification of color accents, final color correction and inside VFX pipelines. Its role is not only in artistic application, but also in the technical optimization of images without artifacts at different stages of production.
WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?
The program is suitable for standard color correction and for creating artistic effects.
Videographers and Colorists
The program lets you save color settings in files with extension .3dl, .cube, .csv which are cross-platform formats, so you can open them in a video editor, such as Adobe After Effects, DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere Pro, FinalCut Pro. You just need to take one frame of the video, process it in the program, save the settings and apply a color profile for the entire video!
Designers and Creative People
The simplicity and clarity with which 3D LUT Creator works, will not leave anyone indifferent. In addition, files with the extension .3dl can be imported into Adobe Photoshop, so you can apply these settings as adjustment layers, applying them not only to bitmap images, but also to vector graphics.

The Channels tool works like a channel mixer in Photoshop but it has much more convenient interface. The Channels tool takes RGB channels of the image and mixes them in different proportions. It also allows you to load and make color calibration matrices.
These image analyzers came from the world of video editing.
The Waveform analyzer shows the distribution of red, green and blue channel values relative to the horizontal scanning of the frame. If you load a linear gray gradient (from black to white, from left to right) into 3D LUT Creator the Waveform will extract the shape of the curve that corresponds to your color correction.
The Parade analyzer shows per-channel distribution of red, green and blue channels relative to horizontal scanning of the frame. It is convenient for setting the white balance manually.
The Volume tool blends the brightness of individual RGB channels with the brightness of the image. It allows you to control the brightness of individual colors.
The A/B color grid allows you to work with colors in Lab color space or any other color space that you select from the Model drop-down list. You can change the hue and saturation of the color by moving the grid points, as well as changing the lightness of the individual colors.
C/L color grids provide precise lightness control within certain hue and saturation. The neutral axis passes through the middle of both grids from top to bottom. The lightness changes vertically on the grids, the saturation changes horizontally away from the neutral axis.
In addition to the standard set of RGB-curves the program also has special curves.
The Luminance curve adjusts the lightness component of the chosen color model.
The Saturation/Luminance curve (or Sat/Lum curve) allows you to control the saturation based on lightness of the image.
The Saturation/Saturation curve (or Sat/Sat curve) allows you to control the saturation of the image colors based on their original saturation.
The Luminance/Saturation curve (or Lum/Sat curve) allows you to control lightness of the image based on its saturation.
2D-curves are side projections of the RGB-cube which is rotated so that the neutral axis passes vertically upwards. On each 2D-curve one of the RGB-axes lies horizontally and is directed away from us. 2D-curves allow you to directly influence the 3D structure of the LUT and create numerous color effects.
3D LUT Creator uses the LibRaw library to load and develop RAW images.
The program also supports the following Log and RAW video formats:
• BMD Film
• BMD Film 4K
• BMD Film 4.6K
• Rad LOG3G10
• DJI Inspire Log
• DJI D-Log
• Canon Log
Using this function you can create LUTs based on the color correction in other programs. For example, you can load a Hald file into Lightroom and apply a preset to it. Then you can load the modified Hald file into 3D LUT Creator, create a LUT and apply it to your video in the video editor.
Masks in 3D LUT Creator are based on different color characteristics, such as RGB & CMYK color channels, Hue, Saturation, Luminance and others. Masks allow you to protect particular image colors from changes.
3D LUT Creator allows you to load third party LUTs, apply them together with the program tools and even edit them! LUTs can be decomposed into three parts: the Contrast curve, RGB curves (split toning) and HSL-component. Each element can be edited separately!
Also, if your LUT is created in 3D LUT Creator you can load it into the program as a preset of program settings.
The larger the LUT size the higher the quality of color transition. The quality will become especially noticeable when you work with Log or RAW images or use color masks.
You can save the settings of program tools (color grids, curves, sliders, etc.) into a separate file for later use.
The Look manager creates thumbnails gallery of your images based on your LUT libraries. It greatly simplifies the selection of the LUT that better suits your image. The Look manager comes with the library of ready-to-use LUTs that can be loaded into the 3D LUT Creator as presets for future editing.
3D LUT Creator saves images in the following formats:
* .jpg - the compression ratio can be selected in the program settings (default quality is 100%);
* .tiff - always stored in RGB 16 bit.
One click image or movie frame import from Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effect and MLVProducer.
One click LUT export to Adobe Photoshop and MLVProducer.
This function allows you to copy the toning from the image taken as an example (reference). Main colors for different brightnesses of the image (split toning) will be copied using RGB-curves.
This function allows you to transfer the toning and color schemes from other images (including frames from the movies) to your images. Also you can write your color correction to the LUT file and then apply it to your video in the video editor.
Batch processing allows you to automatically process a group of photos with a LUT.
Color Matching based on Color Target allows you to automatically build calibrated color profiles. The program supports the following color targets:
