    Would be great to have modern LUT support and features. The ability to have the LUT embedded into a Session or Catalog if applied to images therein would also be extremely helpful. This would ensure that the LUTs travel with the Session/Catalog if moved or shared. Lightroom CC synchronizes the LUT catalog and your favorites via Creative Cloud so the LUTs are available on other computers and even Lightroom Mobile. It's very slick and clean.

    I would love to see C1 add it in like this. This is ACDSee I also have they added a lut feature into the raw area on the last version.

    It has the blend tool and they added a drop-down list of settings for different ways to apply them Soft light works very good for a lot of them. But this opens up a lot of different looks for each lut you use.

    I would like to see a LUT feature to i like how ACDSee dose it you can control the amount and pick filters for it as well. I am doing the trial right now and that is one feature I am looking for I was surprised to see this does not have that.

    Capture pro please add LUTS AVAILABILITY. We as a community should be allowed to import & create our own luts in C1.

    Any news on this?

    Are there any workarounds to use LUTS?

    Please include it as a layer, with all the opacity / masking options that offers.

    btw, I like the easy to grasp cost model of 3D LUT Creator:

    Updates are free up to version 1.xx. Paid upgrades are 2.0, 3.0, etc.
    The cost of the update is 50% of the current version cost at the time of the update.

    As someone who partly makes a living from selling C1 film styles, I live in fear of the day C1 adds support for them...! :D

    Seriously though, it seems like such a small simple feature which would be a big improvement for a lot of people, I'm amazed it's not been done yet. The current workaround to use LUTs in C1 (embedding via the base characteristics) is complex, fiddly and inflexible, and compromises colour accuracy unless targeting a specific camera model only. Surely a LUT tool couldn't be that hard?

    It would be indeed very useful to have Luts natively inside C1. I have 3d Lut Creator and can create Luts and/or adapt them to any ICC profile, but it would be way more efficient to have a native implementation of this functionnality. Indeed, DXO did it a few months ago...

    I would also "vote" for LUT support in layers (like you can do in nodes in DaVinci Resolve). The LUT should be at the end of the signal chain, so that you can make exposure and other adjustment changes prior to the LUT, so that the LUT/LUTs are applied with the right exposer etc. That said, you place the LUT at the end of the signal chain, but then you are able to go back and balance the shot (exposure, contrast, color balance etc.) seeing the image through the LUT. 

    The main reason that I would like to see it in layers, is that I would like to be able to adjust the opacity, and that way be able to blend different LUT's for look creation, or tone down the effect etc. 

    This is THE ONE feature that I care about! :)

    Imo, LUTs should be applied in layers for two reasons,

    (1) opacity to control the strength of the effect

    2) and to be able to bring every image into a 'neutral' base state, so that the LUT can work on this state, as the effect of a LUT depends on the image colors and tones, e.g. if one applies a LUT which was defined on a "regular" image to an underexposed image with a red color shift, the LUT would not work as desired.
    If one has a hammer (the LUT) one should apply it to the type of object it was designed for, not to screws.

    Luckily, the upper layers are applied later in the processing pipeline than the lower layers, that includes all tools which are applicable to layers (to my knowledge at least).

    LUTs can be very useful as they allow corrections which go beyond what is possible with a presets but doubt this is high on their priority list.

    Would like to see LUTs in Capture One. I do not join subscription based services and expensive third party packages like 3DLut or Lutify and hate jumping to other SW packages to utilize LUTs.

    ...sure but adding LUT support would harm their business with totally overpriced and primitive presets.

    Why was this FR marked as completed? There is still no LUT support.

    I don't think that's what it means. I just saw another post about FR statuses and apparently, it's a total mess as no one actually manages this (anymore).

    Aside from that, I don't understand why this feature still does not exist yet. It's the one feature that would literally pay for itself as CaptureOne could start selling their own LUTs, just like they do with the styles.

    I see.  Keith, are you getting a lot out of the new subscription based culling system?

    I wish for LUTs in layers so that I can use masks and opacity slider.

     

    Also great for when outdoor shots of people are sunburned. A LUT can change the red sunburn into a more suntan look for portraits.

    Just in case you don't know, this is really easy in C1 without a LUT, in my opinion. Note the dot is the target color for the uniformity sliders in the Skin Tone Editor, so set it as then desired suntan color and the uniformity sliders will push the colors in the pie segment towards this color:

    I do however fully support the request for LUT layers in C1.

    I also don't want to look for expensive ways to convert LUT to C1, but I reely need this funcion.

    Have been experimenting with importing LUT files as Color>Base Characteristics>ICC profiles. Worked on some of my .RAFs, but nothing on others, until I set the Curve to Film Standard. Hey presto, seems to be consistently working. 

     Not sure if this is Capture One's way forward with LUT's , but if so would be great if imported files could be organized similar to the various brand names already included.

    please take alook at Affinity does work with LUTs:

    I am waiting for this now a long time. Want to work with LUTs in layers and save LUTs and crate my own LUTs and use all my LUTs which are waiting to be used in layers

    LUT in C1 V22 ... it is time after two years this threadwas started. Is it so hard to do this? It is not much more than just a colortable ... come on, finally do it!

    The Alex on Raw video is about 3D LUT, which the OP began his first post by saying he didn't want to pay for.

    "Completed" just means that it's registered by Capture One as a user request.

    As far as I know, Capture One keeps a list/database of user requests; once a request has been added to this list, it's marked as "completed".
