  • LUT Preview creator

    Hi

    Im new here but it looks like there are a lot of clever people around so i thought i would give it a shot.

    Im looking to find or write a script that does the following:

    1. Open an image (jpg, png etc).

    2. Select a folder containing LUT's (.cube etc.)

    3. Apply LUT to the image.

    4. Write the name of used lut as a watermark in the corner.

    5. Save example without overwriting the original.

    (6.) Repeat for all LUT's in the folder.

    I may be wrong but this feels like a rather simple task. Am i wrong?
    I haven't made any PS scripts before but i have worked with Javascript.

    Maby something similar allready exists.

    Thanks.

    Try 3d lut creator. Even demo will do what you need. Problem is, output depends on input. Same lut will affect every image different.

    P.S. Never mind, you can't save in Demo.

      Is it the batch processing you are refering to?

        I assume you trying to have visual representation of what every LUT does to the image. I think it's pointless, because what it does for one image it will not do for another.

          Here is an example. Different image affected differently by the same LUT.

            You can do this with either batch processing or by recording a set of actions. Javascript would be more robust if you want to define specific behavior for naming conflicts and unavailability of specific resources such as drives. A set of actions just halts upon encountering any such error.

            Tulack's point is that LUTs are not guaranteed to use continuous remappings. His example is piecewise smooth, yet exhibits discontinuities across specific ranges. They aren't exactly the same as photo filters.

              And that, combined with "knowing when you're there" is 90% of retouching.

                Thank you for your input.

                My main use for this will be film stock LUT's so the extreme example above isn't an issue.

                The use is for quickly previewing a bunch of LUTs for video work. It is NOT for a final product.

                How would you go about doing this with the batch processor? Im not sure that is possible.

                  There was nothing extreme. Simple LUT that changes green to red. If you have green it would work if you don't have green it will not work. Same with any other LUTs. I usually go through all of them with mouse scroll in seconds. Why saving?

                    Hehe. A LUT that shifts the entire red color channel ls kinda' extreme when you talk film stock emulation luts.

                      Well it is a difference between a relatively continuous smooth mapping and a piecewise smooth mapping. Additional jumps are a significant difference.

                        Anyway, that is irrelevant to the OP.

                          Let's assume I have a CD full of pictures. All the pictures are different sizes some are upright and some are view, some may even be square. (But they are all correctly orientated)

                          What I would like to do is create a batch file to:

                          I make an action to open a pict file, crop it, "save to web" as low rez jpeg, named "26a.jpeg", save it, then close original file with no save. Stop making the action.

                          So I go to do a batch on a folder of picts all the same size and rez.

                          Hi

                          I have been sent 3 CD's full of EPS Images created on a Mac.

                          I can open the files in Photoshop but the default size is very small. I can change the size in Photoshop and save as a jpeg.
