This bundle of free drone LUTs is designed to make the colors in your aerial videos more vivid, add depth to the shadows, increase the saturation, and apply a bit of subtle toning that fits the specific scene you’re editing. The included tools are also very efficient at improving the lighting of the footage, shedding more light on overly dark areas, and adding a bit of warmth and color to the highlighted parts. Each drone LUT from this collection is saved in .cube format, which makes them compatible with programs like Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere, DaVinci Resolve, After Effects, and so on. Created with aerial videography in mind, these color-grading tools excel at outdoor videos that feature vast landscapes, beautiful skylines, lush forest environments, beachside activities, and urban architecture.
This collection of free LUTs for drone videos covers all the basic effects that are commonly applied by professional aerial videographers for their content. You can easily use them on your drone footage to make it look fantastic even if you’ve never done color grading before.
They’re particularly useful if you want to boost the video’s colors while ensuring they still look true to life. If you’re an experienced videographer, you can also enjoy the high-quality look of these drone LUTs while being able to pair them with other effects to create eye-catching, realistic footage that will amaze your audience.
All free drone LUTs from this bundle are a natural fit for any kind of outdoor aerial footage. You’ll get better results and colors if the footage was recorded during sunset/sunrise. These color grading tools can still make even dull videos recorded on an overcast day look thrilling and exciting.
When applied to nature and travel videos, these LUTs make the hues more popping, especially the greens and blues, improve the lighting, and can add some stylish magenta or teal toning. If you use any of these effects on an urban drone video, you’ll make the sky more vibrant and bring out the details in the architecture, making its texture more pronounced and cleaner.
Some of these drone LUTs are also suited for nighttime urban videos, as they make the subjects better visible while making the city lights more atmospheric and warmer.
