CineMatch, a FilmConvert company, is an Adobe Premiere Pro plugin that will save you time when trying to match color between different cameras. The idea is to select your main camera, choose the manufacturer/model, same goes for your B camera, and let the plugin magically convert the colors.
CineMatch Makes Technical LUTs a Thing of the Past
CineMatch is a one-click plugin solution to match different camera in post-production, easily. The first version has been launched at NAB 2019, and it is pretty impressive. The plugin will first be available for Adobe Premiere Pro, with future support for FCPX, DaVinci Resolve, Avid Media Composer and more on the way.
CineMatch is not merely a set of LUTs; it contains dedicated profiles for each camera based on it sensor and not by comparing the light situation of the scene. Currently, the list of supported cameras includes the Sony a7 III, the Panasonic GH5, the FUJIFILM X-T3, the Nikon Z 6, and the BMPCC 4K. I do not doubt that the list will quickly expand.
Who is CineMatch for? If you are an editor, colorist, DIT technician, DP, or independent filmmaker, it can save you time. The first sample footages are impressive. It doesn’t matter if you shoot on one camera in LOG and the other in a Rec.709 profile. So, choose the picture profile that suits your scene and let the plugin do the magic for you. Also, no need to rent the same camera multiple times, shoot with what you have at your disposal and apply it in post-production.
There is no information from CineMatch about pricing and availability at the moment. We can’t wait to get our hands on it and make a review – stay tuned for more info.
