philmColor R3 – LUT based workflow for RED’s IPP2 Color Pipeline
Since the inception of philmColor, thousands of productions have used these LUTs on set, and in post. Phil delights in seeing BTS grabs of his LUTs loaded on set, and the creation of these LUTs is a labor of love for him.
Phil draws his inspiration for his LUT creations from film stocks. The goal is to produce digital stocks useful to the modern filmmaker that will work with a variety of lighting conditions and exposure methods. You will find hints of familiar hues, tones, and density that stretch across modern through vintage Kodak and Fujifilm stocks.
philmColor R3 builds on top of the previous release to add 540 all-new LUTS for an expansive 718 total LUTs.

Phil has included color space transforms for a few very common digital cinema cameras, mirrorless cameras, and generic transforms with PCR3’s release.
