Origami – Natural REC709 LUT for BMPCC4k/BMPCC6k

Origami LUT, a natural LOG to REC709 LUT for BMPCC4k & BMPCC6k Digital Cameras. Build on the ACES platform to give your Pocket Camera the most accurate REC709 starting point for your project.

Origami LUT is designed to get the most natural colors out of Blackmagic Design BMPCC4k/BMPCC6k cameras when converting to REC709 making it an ideal starting point for color grading

Origami BMPCC4k/BMPCC6k LUT to REC709 was created by mixing ACES Color Response and natural organic look. During the creation of this LUT, no filters including ND and Polarizers were used in the process. It’s very important to get a proper clean image of the camera to create accurate LUT. Most filters and other third party gimmicks contaminate the color science.

I highly recommend settings default 13% ‘TINT’ of your Blackmagic to 0. Even though 13 may not be a huge number, in my experience I noticed that very often it introduces a green color cast. Even if you are shooting RAW, it’s always advisable to set exposure and white balance correctly. This is how you get the most out of your camera.

in the example above we can see how native BMPCC LUT wash out the image giving skin tones yellow look.

In the second example, the same yellowish look is very predominant while Origami LUT keeps skin tones very rich and organic.

Basic Structure of Origami LUT

Origami LUT was designed to give Colorists and Editors a proper starting point of color. The build-in LUT that supplied with the cameras is very inaccurate and degrades the overall look of your image forcing a user to do extra adjustments prior to starting the work. Extra nodes, means extra time and computer resources. Few nodes may not sound like a lot, but once you have a solid documentary or feature film, it may result in potential extra hours of rendering. Using Origami LUT with the BMPCC4k & BMPCC6k is very simple. Once you apply the LUT, you can do exposure adjustment in the RAW panel or just create a node before the LUT to adjust it. Once you are happy with the results, you can add a node after the LUT to continue your work.
