Export LUTs for the AJA LUT-box

Due to the design of the AJA LUT-box LiveGrade is not able to use it for real time color grading. However a 3D LUT can be created with LiveGrade and exported and uploaded onto the AJA LUT-box.

In order to be able to upload a LUT into the AJA LUT-box, you have to export it from LiveGrade into a specific format. To do so select it form the Grade Library and go to File > Save selected Looks as:

Then on Look format, you have to select «AJA LUT Box» on the drop down menu:

Once the format has been selected, the LUT export wizard will display the format specifications. Now you only have to save the grade to the specified location.
