For file formats, it supports .dat, .3dl, .cube, and .m3d. I just tested it and it works: $ ./melt ~/Videos/example/wildlife.avi -attach avfilter.lut3d av.file=/c/Users/ddennedy/Download s/Tom_Majerski__Tcolor_BMCC_v1_7.cube -consumer xml:/i/3dlut.mlt
The easiest way to develop it is use your existing Shotcut install, go to share/shotcut/qml/filters/. Copy an existing filter’s folder and rename things. Since this needs a file name, I suggest to copy the “stabilize” or “webvfx” folder to get an example that has a file field.
Umm, this is one of those awkward moments when someone just went to a lot of trouble to help you and you have almost no idea what they are talking about:
For example, I don’t know what this is:
$ ./melt ~/Videos/example/wildlife.avi -attach avfilter.lut3d av.file=/c/Users/ddennedy/Download s/Tom_Majerski__Tcolor_BMCC_v1_7.cube -consumer xml:/i/3dlut.mlt
Is this a command line to open shot cut with a the filter?
I also don’t know what a virtual clip is. Maybe when I have used it a little longer, I’ll be able to do this. Either way thanks for responding and going to the effort of trying it.
I know what you are talking about. I am just saying that the engine of Shotcut - FFmpeg and MLT - already has support for a 3D LUT, and we just need to add a UI element in the Shotcut to expose it. I do not expect you to be able to run those commands and do all that. Those are just notes and evidence of my research findings. Of course, a very advanced user could follow those steps and be up and using LUTs today.
Very cool, and a good timing too. The Magic Lantern guys are just about to figure out how to shoot with LUTs in the Canon DSLRs: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=16299.150
So you can shoot with a flat LUT and color correct with a LUT, which corrects the image, but preserves the extra data(though you might need 10 bit for that).
Thanks @Laccolith !
I’m interessed if you could share one that works OK. I’ve a Panasonic M4/3 camera.
I’d found some 1D Lut and of course it didn’t work, but I’ve try 3D LUT (.cube) & didn’t work either…
I found that Kodak 3D and Lustre 3D *.3dl LUT files with 17x17x17 size work well. Sizes 33x33x33 and 65x65x65 produce wrong colors (bluish-green solarized psychodelic). Also better to set "Tetra"interpolation in filter settings as this produce smoother color gradations.
All *.cube 3D LUT files generated with LUTCalc with any settings display blank screen.
I only tested with downloadable LUTs provided by Tom Majerski. The core of this filter is provided by FFmpeg libavfilter. You can see from link to the docs what formats it supports. I enforce these formats through the file dialog’s file-filters mechanism. You can search the web for “ffmpeg lut3d” plus whatever other keywords you need to learn about any other constraints, limitations, or problems.
What I was going to mention is on Windows would it be possible for the filter to remember the last directory of a opened cube file? at the moment it pops back to (in my case) C:\Program Files\Shotcut which I end up having to browser back to the previous location where the cubes are stored. Obviously I can bookmark the folder alternatively. Only a suggestion.
First, I agree with @PuG. While trying various LUTs, it can be realy quicker…
Except that, I just want to report that I still have the Black screen while updating to Nov version.
I’m on Win7 64bits. French language on the system. Doesn’t work with Eng on shotcut.
I’ll try to re install Shotcut resetting prefs. Then I’ll try changing Windows language.
I’ll come back here maybe tonight or tomorrow !
