Free Alexa LogC to video LUT plug-ins for FCP

They are not intended to be used as part of a finishing pipeline, but hopefully should be useful to people for preview, dailies and editorial.
I am just waiting for a bit of feedback from Arri, and expect to release them at the end of this week.
If you would like to be sent a download link when I release them, then drop me an email – nick [at] antlerpost [dot] com

When I first developed my ALEXA LUT plugins for FCP, I saw them only as a stop gap solution. However they have proved more popular than I had imagined, and there is now a demand for an update to support the ALEXA 3.0 firmware.
I cannot afford to keep developing these plugins and giving them out for free. I have therefore decided to ask people for a voluntary PayPal donation of $30(US) to support the ongoing development of the plugins. If you do not wish to donate, you are of course free to continue to use my existing plugins, although the web link to download them will soon cease to be active.
People who donate will receive an update I have written which uses ARRI's 3.0 curves and has some other changes including the option of a colour matrix as well as the saturation slider. It is important to note that this is NOT the actual matrix used in camera (as ARRI does not publish this information) but is my own matrix which I feel better approximates the in camera Rec709 colour processing than a simple saturation boost.
I am designating this release as beta, because it has not been tested yet on a wide range of 3.0 footage. Those who receive it can send me feedback on how it works for them, and how they might like it changed, and they will receive an updated release version as soon as it is ready.
Future updates to the plugin in its current form will be free to donors, as will versions of it which I have in development for REDlogFilm, S-Log and others. I have started work on a more sophisticated version of the plugin using the FXPlug architecture (32-bit float processing and GPU acceleration, thus removing the "preview only" restriction) and while this will not be a free update, donors will receive a discount towards the purchase which will be greater than the amount they donated.
