Sony HLG LUTs

Fast & easy grading in a few clicks. Choose the LUT, balance your footage then onto the next one.

  • Four stylistic Sony HLG LUTs

  • I use these LUTs for quick grades while using the Hybrid Log Gamma Profiles on the A7III

  • Perfect for HLG2 & HLG3 Picture Profiles

  • Created using Sony A7III HLG 8bit footage

  • Choose the LUT then Correct Exposure & Colour Balance under the LUT

  • Use with all video editing software that supports .cube files

  • After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Davinici Resolve.

  • NOTE* LUTs are not the be all and end all colour corrections. They will not magically make your image perfect. Every single image is slightly different in framing, color, and lighting. These luts like any luts will require adjustments. 

How to use

  5. Done, move onto the next clip!
