Removing LUT files from creative / technical menu

So I've imported some new luts into my creative menu but I can't seem to remove the old ones. I'd rather just have a list of the ones I use vs a long list of options I don't. 

 

I'm working on a mac system and I went through the path to install the new luts but the ones I want to remove aren't in there. Is there anyway I can get rid of them?

 

Thanks!

If you're talking about the shipped LUTs, those are in the package/program folders. They'd rather you not mess there.

 

So I simply add prefixes to organize all my LUTs. A two-digit number, space for visual clarity, then a capital letter, space, then LUT name.

 

01 A low-sat neut

01 B norm sat neut

01 C hi-sat neut

02 A sat rolloff low-mids up

02 B sat rolloff mids up

 

You get the idea.

 

And ... as LUTS are known among colorists as "the dumbest math out there" ... and will clip without compunction ... I always follow the proper advice to apply LUTs after a 'trim node' ... so I never ever apply LUTs in the Basic tab unless it's in a second or later instance of Lumetri ... well, about ever.

 

I apply LUTs from the Creative tab, use the Basic tab to trim the tonal range into what the LUT needs to "see" to work correctly.

Hi, Neil. I have one question, you say it´s not a good idea to mess with the LUTs folder to add LUTs (better on the Common folder, from what I understand), but you would recomend removing LUTs from the package/program folder? (I want to clean that drop down menu in my Premiere Pro). Thanks!

I know some people do, because 1) they never ever use those and 2) it makes for a MUCH cleaner/quicker working process.

 

So ... if you ain't ever gonna touch them, feel free.
