Exporting LUT from Colordirector to a format that the Powerdirector understands

Hi All,

I have a situation with a ton of short clips recorded under exact same conditions, in need to be color corrected (several seconds per clip).


I would like to avoid launching an instance of Colordirector for each and every one, and instead just apply preset to the clip In Powerdirector.

I had Director Suite 16, and could not get it to work.

So I've upgraded to yearly subscription, lead by the key note for the Colordirector 7:

"Import and export LUTs for professional-grade color adjustment"

Unfortunately, the only export option is still ".cdadj", that is not recognized by the Powerdirector.

Wierd, right? One would assume that the formats should be recognized between programs in the same suite of the same version.


Does anyone have an idea on how to convert ".cdadj" to any usable LUT file format for Powerdirector?

Am I looking to this problem from a wrong angle?

Help please !

Hello eki,

Welcome to the CDR forum if you've not been welcomed before laughing

In CDR, after you've made the adjustments you wish to the clip, click Create and select "Color LookUp Table". After filling in the necessary details, click Save.

Your LUT will be saved in .cube format which can be imported into PDR.

Those steps are shown in the attached screenshots. I've also attached an example LUT created in CDR.

If that's unclear, let us know & we can rectify.
