Just thought I'd share a quick tip on how I organize my LUT folder for Resolve. It can get a little crazy when you have lots of LUTs on your system. Because of the way resolve displays the list of LUTs, they don't always show up in the same structure as your folders.
Is your LUT list looking a little bit excessive?
Organizing the LUT folder
Below is what my Resolve LUT folder looks like at the moment. (Get to this by opening the Resolve Color Management preferences and clicking "Open LUT Folder" button toward the middle.)
Things are pretty well organized, but there are several categories I never use.
So, here's what I do...
I just move all the LUTs I don't use too often into a folder called "Other."
Here's the trick though: Resolve will group LUTs into folders that contain ONLY LUTS. So if there are sub-folders inside of the "Other" folder, all those sub-folders will still show up in Resolve's list.
So, the solution is put all the LUT files inside of the "Other" folder by themselves. Yeah I sacrifice a little organization, but hey... I don't use those LUTs very often anyway, so, who cares?
After that, just hit "Update Lists" in Resolve Color Management and now I have a nicely organized list when I right-click on a node.
So there it is. An easy way to organize your LUTs!
Hope that helps!
