I am using Premiere Pro CC (2015.3)  In the effects area, under Lumetri Looks, there are presets to play around with to change the color scheme,  However I also found places online where you can download .look files to add  more options in Premiere Pro. An example of where i downloaded some of these looks can be found at:

SpeedGrade Looks « digitalfilms

While these .look files originated from speedgrade, there is supposed to be a way that it can be applied to the clip in Premiere Pro.  Anybody out there know how to do this with .look files living on your harddrive?

Thanks everyone in advance for your input.

As said in the help files, and shown in the tutorials on this by Adobe ... for Look files, go to the Creative tab, click the drop-down arrow, and navigate to the folder where you keep your Look files. Select one, and it will be applied.Neil

Hi Neil, 

 

I was wondering whether you could clarify the difference between a .look and a .cube file. Are there reasons to use one or the other? I haven't been able to find a clear answer in Adobe's documentation or on other sites, but it's possible I've missed it somewhere.

 

Thanks so much!

.Look files format I think originallly was part of Iridas, which was bought out by Adobe and provided as SpeedGrade to us users until they EOL'd that application. They've kept compatibility with those files still. Essentially, they are an Adobe form of a cube LUT, and work ok in PrPro.

 

The .cube files are more cross-application usable.

 

The other thing that is confusing is the way the word "Look" is used. You can have a .Look file that is a cube LUT format file, or a Look ... that is just a preset of the Lumetri instance with the settings already 'set'.
