The Buttery LUTs collection is the result of the collaboration between Local 600 DIT Raffaele Vesco and cinematographer Matteo Bertoli. Our collection includes a Natural Rec709 LUT, inspired by the industry standard Arri - Rec709, and four different creative LUTs.
The Buttery LUTs Collection was developed using Flanders Scientific DM250 OLED monitors which feature full 12-bit video processing and are among the most advanced for on set monitoring and post production.
The Buttery LUTs collection is currently available for:
- Panasonic GH5 and GH5s
- Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro (G1 and G2)
- Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC4K and original BMPCC)
- Sony Alpha Serie (SLog2/SGamut3Cine) | FS5/FS7 - (SLog2/SLog3/SGamut3Cine)
*All our LUTs need to be applied to the LOG footage.

The idea behind the Natural Rec709 LUT is to give cinematographers and colorists a better and more neutral starting point for their color grading process. Not only that, the Natural Rec709 is also an amazing tool for people who have a quick turn around and they don’t have too much time to spend in the color grading process (for the samples in this page we simply apply the LUT and adjust the contrast and color temperature, nothing else!). It’s also great for monitoring the footage during production, giving you an accurate representation of what colors really look like. With the BMPCC4K you can even bake the LUT into the footage and go straight into the editing process. Check out this tutorial to see how to use the BUTTERY LUTs: https://youtu.be/PkATCGopPgc
Some other unique features of our Natural Rec709 LUT are: more pleasant skin tones, smoother highlights roll-off, cleaner shadows and overall a better dynamic range when compared to the manufacturer’s ones. It also works in any kind of situations, interior, exterior, day and night.
NOTE: Blackmagic usually adds a +10 TINT to the BRAW files, but our LUTs work better when TINT is set to ZERO. Be sure to double check your settings on both BMPCC4K and Ursa Mini Pro before applying our LUTs.
Our Creative LUTs are inspired by some of the top high end commercials and they include two soft and two contrasty looks, one warmer and one colder.

These LUTs are not recommended for monitoring since they are made to stylize your footage, but we still used our incredibly accurate Natural Rec709 as a starting point, so even if they are a little bit pushy, they still retain a lot of information in the highlights, shadows and skin tones.
