35 FREE LUTs from RocketStock
The best part about these LUTs? They’re compatible with all the major NLEs — Premiere, FCPX, Resolve, and Media Composer. So, if you ever find yourself switching programs, you can take your looks with you to maintain your visual aesthetic.
Unlike the LUTs in the top section, these are CUBE files. That means all you have to do is download the pack, open up your editing software, and input the file into your project. No problem.
Wanderlust: 17 FREE LUTs for LOG Footage
Just like the LUTs in the RocketStock pack above, these free assets work in all of the big-name NLEs. However, these LUTs are designed to only work when applied to LOG footage.
I find Wanderlust’s looks comparable to those you get from the paid LUTs pack offered by Buttery Films. (You can get those here.) The pack’s unsaturated aesthetic is heavily inspired by travel, and they definitely don’t look stock.
