Fujifilm LUT Pack for OBS

Fujifilm LUT Pack for OBS

I created a Fujifilm LUT presets pack for OBS (or StreamLabs). You don’t know OBS? OK, Let me elaborate…
As you know, I recently started live streaming on YouTube. And I have been testing a few apps for to help me with that. Once I settle for one solution I may enthusiastically write (or stream) about that particular one. But for now I’m only going to briefly mention all I know.

OBS (Open Broadcaster Software)

OBS is an open source platform available for Windows, Mac and Linux. It’s de de facto standard for streaming and other solutions are based on the same codebase. OBS is a really good piece of software and offers plenty of features that can be extended even more via external plugins. It may be a bit rough on the edges and could use a UX Designer or two, but it does the job pretty well.

StreamLabs OBS

OBS can be overwhelming to somebody completely new to the streaming world. That’s why StreamLabs created their own fork of the application. They made it easier to install thanks to a friendly wizard. StreamLabs started by offering widgets to add to OBS and then decided to create their own standalone software, StreamLabs OBS.
Most of the customisations require a payment to their Prime subscription. To some extent it makes sense because they offer a lot, including other apps like PretzelRocks for background music. But it feels a bit expensive to someone that is only moving their first steps. Also considering the OSX version is (a lot!) more limited.
But, if you’re keen on trying it out, clicking on link above you’ll visit the website via my affiliate code. And that will grant you $10 off your purchase.

OBS.live

OBS.Live is another fork with a similar background. Coming from StreamElements, who also had their solutions available for the parent platform (overlays, themes and chatbot). I actually haven’t tried it yet.

Ecamm Live

Ecamm Live is relatively new and only available for Mac. As with many other apps for this OS, it looks like “the cool kid” and indeed has some nice features out-of-the-box. Being dedicated to Mac, it is also well optimised for the platform. For example, it’s not so demanding to trigger all the fans in my old iMac 27”, while when running any OBS fork I can clearly hear it struggle. I really like it, but it has limitations as well, like not being able to use VST plugins to play with the audio. But seeing how quickly they release updates, it may come.
It’s subscription-based and they offer a fully functional 14 days trial.

Customising your look in StreamLabs OBS

Even though I’m testing all of them, my first YouTube lives were all streamed through StreamLabs OBS. And that is my shortlisted solution, together with Ecamm.

As a photographer, and wannabe videographer I guess, the look is always very important to me. It’s a reason I’m so in love with Fujifilm. And these platforms offer some customisation on the look&feel of your streaming. Ecamm does it by using the standard LUT filters with a .cube extension. The OBS apps instead use a PNG image with a colour pattern. It reminds me of a camera sensor pattern (if you’re curious, I talk about sensor patterns in my previous post).

The reason I’m telling you all of this is that I managed to figure out how to customise this PNG to achieve specific tones. And in my case, I wanted to match the Fujifilm film simulations I already use for my photos.

I took my favourite film simulations and turned them into my Fujifilm LUT pack for OBS and StreamLabs. Right now, I’m using the Acros+Y myself in my streaming but there are more in the pack. And it’s on sale in my store!

This is not a preset pack that you can use in any video editing software as is. It’s specific for the OBS platform.

There are convoluted ways to convert these PNG files and use them. And if you’re keen, you’re welcome to purchase the pack and try. It’s so cheap you could very well do it. But I cannot guarantee the results.

I spent some time creating these filters but it was well worth it because I really enjoy the looks.
Here are a few examples. I borrowed an image of a web call from Unsplash (thanks Visualz) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Acros + Yellow filter (the one I use right now)

There are 13 film simulations in the pack and it also includes a neutral PNG file to start creating your own.
The instructions to install and use the filters are in the product page and in the PDF document you receive with the pack. Now go to the store page!

It was a really fun work to create this Fujifilm LUT pack and they’re a pleasure to use. Hope you’ll enjoy them too. And if you do, please leave a nice review.

Cheers.
