Welcome to MM -- it's great to have you around!

I have four questions off-hand....

1.) What is the (tentative - I do this too and know how it goes!) timeline for a public release?
2.) What (ish) will the pricing be?
3.) Is there any possibility of a native Macintosh version in the next 3-6 months?
4.) Any chance of moving to 3D projection of the LUT, or will it remain 2D?

Thanks in all cases for making what looks to be a much-needed / long-neglected tool for the serious PS user.

1.) There's no real timeline yet, but there going to be stream featuring this program at November 19th and November 22nd. Both of them are going to be in russian, but I hope to shape the program into public beta before that date.
2.) It's $50 for now, and will be in the near future.
3.) It would require huge amount of luck. I have a plan in my mind, but there's a lots of things that can go wrong. So I'd say the answer is 95% no.
4.) I'm going to add another grid, so you'll be able to apply corrections at 2 luminance levels, one for shadows and one for highlights. It seems to me that going further is too complicated for a human perception, maybe until the moment when we the holographic displays arrive, who knows smile

Thank you for your interest!

It occurs to me that this project would be ideal for a Kickstarter.com funding. It could be given chance to gain momentum and the advantage of a huge user base of Photoshop folk on various forums and the like to turn people towards it.

I've started using LUTs quite extensively for the past 6-7 months now (I have a collection of about 50-60 of them). I have 3 photos in my MM portfolio where I've used them. Mostly just artistic choice rather than emulating a certain look. However I've found that SOME of them, in the right blending mode, give the image a painterly effect (that wasn't present when I got done retouching).

Examples:

Dear Clear Touch,

Can you please indicate where to find those collections of LUTs?

TIA,

I have found .look files all around the web, no doubt they are a little tricky to find, but they are there. A lot of them are free and I have found a few paid ones.

Speedgrade comes with about an extra 30 or so if you have a CC and can download it, just for the presets and then uninstall.

Adobe recommends.

"3DLUT Creator is one package to create them, or SpeedGrade."

I've been using the 3D color tool in CS6, pretty much just playing around with the presets and trying to figure out how to use agorka's software. One observation about the presets that are bundled with CS6, as well as those I've downloaded from agorka's FB page, confuses me. They are all so heavy handed, meaning the results are so extreme as to be unusable. What am I missing here?

I think it's just a matter of taste of those who create the presets.

Luts are not flexible. Even different color temperature, would give you different result. What would work for one image, wouldn't work for other. You create LUT, you apply it, and then you throw it away, because it would not work on anything else. Why aren't you get DEMO version of the software and play with it? If you have questions, I will try to answer.

The approach is to make parts of the image orange, and other parts - teal. Usually people go for orange highlights / teal shadows. Seriously, that's about it as far as approach goes.

IMO for photographers (or those who have good relationships with their photographer clients), this may be a workflow issue then.  My advocation for quite some time has been to apply two layers of color calibration, which at the quality available is likely to hit the mark for most retouchers on here and only require tweaks for the real sticklers [Bob among them!].  To get to the meat of it, the workflow would be to shoot with whatever color balances in available (respecting color ratios and that they will still have an impact on the result), to shoot a color calibrator on set under the model's light, and to then correct for that lighting as the first step of post production.  This normalizes the shot color and allows that when you next apply the LUT to the image it will look very very much as would be 'expected'.

Now of course if Adobe'd had the vision to integrate something like a LUT builder within PS, you'd be able to make any little tweaks necessary in a completely nondestructive fashion, but that's a battle for another day.

There is no issue. You get one image from the set. Create LUT for it. Apply to the rest, trash the LUT.

No need also. This thread about such program.
