    Hi All,

    Been piloting for 8 months, recently qualified. Things going quite well.

    But...I'd like a FAST-TRACK tool that has a bunch of quality PRESETS to help with color correction.

    - I don't want to sit with a bunch of sliders and dials, until I think I have the right look. My mind just can't keep up
    - I DO want to click on a bunch of presets, and then use the one I like the look of best. Visually, I can copw with this

    Thanks,

    SC

    Judge you how?

    Do you have any editing software? A good solution might be to get a few LUT packages. You can go a long way with these to getting pleasing output with minimal fiddling- you would only need to play with two sliders, white and black points and apply the LUT you like the look of.

    As stated above LUTS can save a lot of time but keep in mind they are someone else's idea of "The perfect scenario" and may or may NOT fit your eye.

    Agreed to the above statements, both Davinci Resolve and Premiere Pro come with free LUTs, as well as free film looks. Just add a LUT, and/or film look, and then fine tune the intensity, as well as other minor corrections.
