NTown Grading LUT Collection: Miami Cop TV Look

The Miami Cop LUTs are based on a famous 2000s crime series which resembles very strong golden, sunny colors with strong contrasts.
The package includes 4 different LUT file that are based on the “Miami Cop” look which are optimized for different filming situations with different light and contrast conditions.

 

How to prepare your material for propper LUT usage

Bring your material into a de-log state by either:
    apply the right camera BASE LUT available for free
    by tuning shadows to 0% IRE and white to 100% IRE and gamma to apx. 2.0-2.5 (depending on your materials gamma)

Use material with good quality
    the better the quality of your original material, the better the grading quality
    meaning very good 8-bit content or better 10-bit material
    original material should not have blacks crushed below 0% IRE or whites clipped above 100% IRE if possible

  Be aware that the Base LUTs correcting only brightness distribution and saturation, but not colors. This is done later with one of the styling LUTs.

  NTown’s Base LUTs are available for free in our List of most popular camera Base LUT Downloads.

Many grading applications are able to apply multiple LUTs.
The first LUT should always be the “correcting” BASE LUT to get your material into a “de-gamma” state to get out of that desaturated-flat look.
Then your material is ready to get a styling LUT which does the color grading for you.

Apply the styling LUT

To fintune the style, adjust the gamma or gain if the image appears to dark, or lower the exposure or gain if the image is too bright.
It always a good idea to keep an eye on the waveform monitor or the histogram and keep the majority of the image information in the middle or lower third.
