What I was trying to do was have a LUT emulate the difference between a linear RED file and a REDGamma2 Red file. Quite often I have to work in Cineform and its conversion does not preserve the Red metadata values and my idea was work in a linear gamma space with a LUT applied on top
So i imported the same r3d file twice...set one to linear, the other to redGamma2....did a histogram match between the 2, then CC's the LUT Cubecreate tool with the instance of the CC, ran that through the analyzer and wrote out the LUT...
Now when that LUT is applied through the view LUT or the file LUT the image is way off....not even remotely close
any ideas why this would be?
