Developer and VFX supervisor Hassan Uriostegui has released Cinekolor, a new iOS app for colour correcting still images capable of exporting the 3D LUTs it generates to Nuke or Photoshop.
Uriostegui describes the app as “the mobile version of … high-end color editing software like Lightroom, Lustre or Scratch conceptualized as a touch experience”.
Controls and export options
Cinekolor offers a standard range of tools, including per-channel luminance and gain adjustment; split-tone colour and gain controls; and exposure, brightness, contrast, saturation and tint controls.
There are dedicated modules for skin enhancement and to tweak vibrance and saturation, plus an effects module that handles basic noise reduction, lens effects, vignetting, tilt shift and glow.
Operations are carried out with 16-bits-per-channel floating-point precision, not 32, but you can export 3D LUTs in Iridas .cube format to any desktop app that supports them, including Nuke and Photoshop CS6 and above.
Cinekolor is available now for iOS 7 and above. The base app is free, but each time you share its output – such as by exporting a LUT – you use up ‘ProActions’, available as an in-app purchase at $0.99 for 500.
