About Buttery

BUTTERY LUTs (a branch of BUTTERY FILMS) is the result of the collaboration between Local 600 DIT Raffaele Vesco and cinematographer Matteo Bertoli.

The mission of BUTTERY LUTs is to offer a much better alternative to the manufacturer's LUTs, which often don't give you an accurate representation of the actual image (red skin tones, harsh highlights roll-off, magenta cast, etc.).

At first Matteo and Raffaele thought that it was an issue with the actual sensors, but after spending months color grading and working with a large variety of footage, they found out that the main issue was indeed the LUT offered by the manufacturer. From there, they started working on a LUT that could offer the same great results of the industry standard Arri Rec709. After a couple of months spent in front of a Flanders Scientific DM250, one of the most advanced 12-bit OLED monitor on the market, they came out with the first version of the Natural Rec709. After that, they quickly adapted it to more and more cameras and they also developed a creative collection. BUTTERY LUTs Collection currently works with some of the most common cameras on the market and it's constantly expanding to even more cameras.
