What programs can I use the LUTs with to color grade my footage?

You can use these LUT’s with any program that reads a LUT / .cube file. This will work in Premiere in the Lumetri Tab. For FCPX 10.3 or

earlier, you will need to get a LUT utility in order to load the color grade. We recommend Color Finale or mLUT from motionVFX. With

FCPX 10.4, you will be able to use the LUTs natively with the new LUT utility built-in. For Davinci Resolve, you can load these LUTs as a 3D LUT in your node window in the Color Tab.
