    Agree. And actually, even if I end up not using them a lot, it is always good to have some external stimulation for improving things.

    C1 is such a powerful tool, I'm still barely scraping the surface.

    Quick follow-up here: I’m so happy I bought this set of styles. It was really my first venture into color grading and I wouldn’t have gone there without the matte pack. €69 is still not cheap but for me it was worth every penny

    There is also the opportunity to use LUTs but these are not well implemented in COP in my opinion. That may be down to my incompetence or something else.

    I was about to ask the same thing, could you elaborate on LUTs?

    LUT = Look Up Table.

    In an image, a given pixel value is found in the table, which shows the color value to be used. This process is repeated for each pixel. They can be used for color grading, film simulation, etc. LUTs are more common in the video world.

    Thanks :)
    I don't know how it works for film simulation, but thanks

    LUTS are very simple to use and there are thousands of them, some very good indeed, all over the internet. There are a lot of very good film sim ones around too (although you tend to have to pay for the best ones). Obviously the only things they can change are tones and colours and, to a certain extent, perceived dynamic range. They tend to be divided into 'technical' or 'input' LUTS, which mainly handle a transform from a logarithmic curve to a 'normal' one (generally used to process log video footage into a Rec 709 colour space) and 'look' or 'output' LUTS, which is where the film simulation (or Ridley Scott orange skin) goodness occurs. It's only recently that still image processing software has been able to employ them. I knew that PS and Affinity could - C1 is a nice addition.

    Film simulations are basically deciding to make an image look like it was taken with a film. Film has a specific response to light in various colors and intensities. Digital cameras have a more direct response than film. So a LUT maps those direct responses to the light into something more like the way film would respond.
