3-strip Technicolor Picture Profile or LUTS

Recommended Posts

Hello

I'm using the Canon 5Diii with ML and am looking for a Picture Profile that resembles the color, contrast, hue, saturation, texture, and grain of the original  3-strip Technicolor films such as Rebel Without a Cause, Gone with the Wind, Black Narcissus, Red Shoes, or La La Land for that matter

ANy suggestions of in-camera PP that are designed for Canon DSLR's using Magic Lanterns??? Ideally, I would like to just apply this look in-camera... but if someone does have a LUT to use in post-pro, then that would be of interest as well. Though I would like to use such a LUT more frequently than on Stills.... I'm not quite aware how or if it I possible to apply Cinema Style LUTS to still photos... please clarify. 

In other words, for my intentions of what I'm doing, I just want to get in the ballpark and do not want to do any grading in post on the video clips or stills that I take while in the same picture profile.

Any suggestions?? If I gotta pay, it might be worth it if the intentional design was to replicate this very look and the match is close enough

try to triplicate your footage and play with color dodge, i have do it years ago with 2 strip colorama with red and blue channels, i dont remember how exactly i do it but apply the luts you want(in my case asome high constrast luma and colour lut) and then play with mix channels.

the best way you can get it is learning how the 3 strip technicolor tech work, and then reverse eingeneer that with post vfx.

Yeah that's what I'm trying to avoid-- I'm not a color correction guru or aficionado -- for my purposes, that post-processing would be far too time-consuming. Baking in the look via a picture profile is the ideal.

But in general-- is there a way to add LUTs to still photos in either Resolve or some other program?? Post-processing stills photos in Resolve seems a rather clunky workflow app for simply making stills more filmlike/cinematic. Other app suggestions?

 

Any picture profiles of note that are great emulating a certain film stock??? Various choices are always welcome

This is a pretty comprehensive tutorial for Resolve for doing 3 strip and includes a downloadable .DRX file to automate it for you

It's a Resolve powergrade file that you can load up to replicate all of the processing steps he took in the tutorial on your own footage. 

If you just want to use a LUT then Cinepunch has a variety of different 2 strip and 3 strip emulation in its Lutmaster bundle that you can preview here.

This is looking very interesting. A LUT might be the way to go. I didn't know that LUTs can be uploaded into PS and therefore be utilized on stills in that method. $48 seems worth it. 

One thing about these LUTS though is they seem to always primarily focus on color when reality, the film grain and texture of the image is really what makes it come alive... after all-- film is movement. And this grain and texture in my opinion does also make for a more dense and 3-dimensional image ~giving a more immediate illusion and perspective of depth cues
