hi
i shot one feature film (docu -drama) with 550D in excruciating heat of 45 degree in India. camera is pretty solid. i used one home made method of keeping camera cool.i used a wet lawn cloth and put in on camera gear all the time. wink:
i shot the entire film using Technicolor picture style. tried to install LUT buddy in premiere pro so i can edit the native footage. but to my frustration LUT buddy is working in after effects but not in premiere pro. no idea why.
so i used auto curves and some how i feel the results are batter then LUT buddy . here is one sample.
what u guys think ?

Don't know to much about this precise software you're talking about, but seem to understand that lut buddy is applying some sort of standard lut to your material isn't it? I use to work with on set LUTs and haven't found yet a quick way to apply them onto the offline process. What I do is to recreate a color preset with a 3 way color corrector, is a cheap and easy way to do it, so to create a buch of favorite presets to use as translation of the lut. I know there are other ways to import my luts but this is the only way I found to avoid renders.
If lut buddy is applying an auto lut... well it's badly done, the point is for you to create your own luts.
