Viewing Images And Video

Viewing images when LUTs are applied.

The Image View reflects the look when you have explicitly applied a LUT to it. The Gallery that can be resized by dragging the divider down/up gives a good idea of what the image will look like for each of the LUTs in the Gallery. You can get a better idea by making the LUTs Gallery views larger by zooming in with the zoom slider at the very bottom. To get a detailed look, however, you will need to apply a LUT to a chosen image or video frame. The fastest way to do this is to just drag a LUT from the LUT Gallery to the image and drop it. The LUT will immediately be applied. This also works in Two and Quad view modes.

Alternatively, you can:

  1. Select the LUT you want to apply. A blue background will appear around the LUTs name.
  2. Double-click to actually apply the LUT to the image in the Image View. Now you may want to switch between the image before and after the LUT was applied. To do so, click the checkmark in the blue title bar of the Image View at the left of the applied LUT’s name. Next to that name, on the right, there is a small arrow in a circle. To bypass the applied LUT, click the checkmark — the checkbox becomes light grey (or dark when your Mac is in Dark mode). To apply again, click the checkbox again. While having a LUT applied to the image in the Image View, you may have browsed the Gallery some more and even have selected a different LUT — with the blue background of that LUT’s name turning on but without you double-clicking it yet. In that case, you can quickly return to the LUT applied to the image in the Image View by clicking the small arrow. Alternatively, you can right-click and select Reveal in Gallery from the context menu. If you want to know where the applied LUT resides on your system, select Reveal in Finder instead. You may also want to see how the LUT affects the image in the Image View when the effect itself is not 100% applied. In that case, click the Mix field and drag the slider to the percentage you desire or enter a percentage directly in that field.
