So I finally embrace the LUT and want to try the cool LUT I just found here but the Speedgrade manual and Adobe help aren’t exactly helpful. What is a LUT? This Wiki will explain it.
After playing around in various forms, a restart and lots of worthless Google searches I stumbled on the solution by accident. In the lower left corner, click on the + icon to open a menu and select FILM and choose LUT.
This will allow you to select the LUT you have downloaded, is available as a default or something you have created in another application.
If you are looking to try out a LUT without paying, try out the Instagram looks I found here.
Once upon a time you could shoot 60FPS material on a video camera and use Cinema Tools to conform or alter the properties of the clip to 23.98 (or 30 if you were so inclined). With more folks using Premiere to edit I couldn’t find the solution to do the same until I stumbled upon another blog post. Within the project folder right-click on the clip that was recorded at 60FPS and choose Modify>Interpret Footage.
In the dialogue change the Assume Frame rate box to the appropriate time base for your project.
Now this does not change the size of your clip so if you recorded slow motion clips at 720 and the rest of your project at 1080 you will have to scale up the slow-motion clips or scale down your 1080 footage.
