5 Steps for properly adding a LUT to Blackmagic Pocket 6K Pro

  • Prepare Media

    Format your media via your camera’s ‘storage’ settings. Tap on the storage indicator at the bottom of the LCD touchscreen to enter the storage manager. Select storage option and Format.

  • Add Monitoring LUT to SD Card or Storage

    Place an SD card into your computer (after it has been formatted in your camera) and place the monitoring LUT in the root directory of your SD card

  • Select 'LUTS' in Menu

    Place the SD card back into your camera, press the ‘Menu’ button to open your camera’s Dashboard and then select the LUTS tab in the top right.

  • Import LUT onto Camera

    To import a 3D LUT, tap the ‘manage’ icon at the bottom of the ‘LUTs’ menu. Tap ‘import LUT’, then tap ‘import’ to confirm. Select the LUT you want to monitor and click the ‘Load’ checkmark icon. (*Note: if you want to import a new LUT but all 10 3D LUT slots are full, you need to delete an existing LUT to make space.)

  • Turn on 'Display 3D LUT'

    To display the loaded LUT on your camera outputs, navigate to the Monitor menu tab and switch on ‘display 3D LUT’. (*Note: this LUT is not “baked” into the footage and is only for monitoring purposes.
