9x LUTs for colour grading video footage
Inspired by everyday urban destinations around the world, these look-up-tables (LUTs) offer a professional base to colour grade your video footage. Great attention has been directed towards various urban textures and scenes, to produce exceptional results across most cameras.

These LUTs follow on from the hugely popular URBAN CHROME and URBAN STONE Lightroom Preset series and are stylistically designed to creatively enhance the cinematic feel of urban scenes, found around the world. With bespoke colour tonality, hue, saturation, luminance and contrast adjustments at micro-levels; careful attention has been paid to maximise the flexibility and quality of these LUTs.

Save time colour grading your footage and get consistent results, every time you edit videos!

Compatible with ALL cameras
With heavy attention to the tones and textures of various urban scenes, these presets will work exceptionally well across all camera manufacturers, including Panasonic, Sony, Fujifilm, Canon, Nikon and more.

Unfortunately, not all cameras are created equally, with some manufacturers applying more colour processing than others. For best results, apply these LUTs to footage with natural/flat colour profiles and tweak exposure and strength settings as necessary. Log footage will likely require further adjustments depending on the brand of camera, but these LUTs will offer a great finish for colour tonality and hues, once the footage has been "normalised".

Due to the more restrictive nature of video formats, over RAW photography, the highest attention should be made to capturing accurate exposure and white balance settings, at the time of filming, in-camera.

Every scene is different, so further tweaking and experimentation may be needed when applying these LUTs. Consistency as a base is the greatest value of applying LUTs to footage.

What's included
There are 9 "looks" in this package (in both .cube and .3dl file format). Every piece of footage is different, so further tweaking and experimentation may be needed. Continue reading for more information and visuals about each style.

A full .pdf document with installation instructions and sample images is also included within the download.

Compatability
These LUTs are, suitable for the latest versions of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Final Cut Pro X, along with any other video software that support LUTs via the .cube and .3dl file formats. 

These look-up-tables (LUTs) are best used on footage captured in a flat picture profile (lower contrast, sharpening and saturation). Most DSLRs, mirrorless and many compact cameras allow customisation of picture profiles/styles. For flexibility when editing, shoot in a profile such as Cinelike-D (Panasonic) or Cine4 (Sony), or customise an existing profile for a flatter image.

Using apps such as FiLMiC Pro or Moment Camera offer the best options for footage captured on an iPhone.
