Free/Cheap LUTs for Spark Ar

Has anyone found and worth while resources for LUTs?

Everyone I come across (github, gumroad etc.) are painful.

No proper file naming, no descriptions and no examples.

Always creating LUTs for my needs from scratch or use my own library :slight_smile:

I need to just allocate some time and do this too, thanks for the reply.

I wouldn’t necessarily say “worthwhile” but I did find a few packs full of them online a while ago. If anything the issue is converting them all manually to work on spark. For some reason quite a few also end up in pixelization or other issues once ported over :frowning:

The easiest way to create them yourself is to load up the neutral lut image on photoshop, put a reference picture on top and apply all kinds of visual changes you want, then simply disable the picture. The neutral lut, modified by the changes on the image, is basically a brand new LUT.

Applying any change to the neutral LUT basically creates a new LUT :stuck_out_tongue:

We have plans to release some themed LUT bundles from the GMIC tool. It’ll have formats for Spark, Lens Studio, Photoshop, and a few more. The format conversion is a big pain IMO, so hopefully these bundles will simplify that.

If you aren’t afraid of the command line, you can grab the project and generate the previews and lut formats from the source.


Ohh, I remember LUTs app from Maru.

Can’t wait to see someone make another tutorial series on Youtube to learn how to use it~

u can always ask Maru, he is a nice guy and always answer

Requires GMIC which doesn’t seem to be on Mac (without warnings haha)

Interesting though. I’ve just started usual VSC to explore generative art.

@tommy_mopstaining I developed this repo on mac without any gmic warnings. I think I installed through homebrew or some other equally lazy solution. How are you installing it?

I put together a reference for Lens Studio’s LUTs and converted them to the FastColorLUT format for Spark AR (link to them on the page) Lens Studio built-in LUT reference guide


Warnings was probably an ambiguous word for me to use in this context…

Ohh yeah, well in that case I’m sure it would work in a docker container. Something like this: Bitbucket
