The ARRI Look Library is a collective of predefined creative colour gradings that can be installed in ARRI cameras equipped with advanced look management.
Providing a repertoire of 87 high quality looks in three intensities, the library allocates each of them a unique number and groups them into themes such as film emulations, historical periods, seasons, and more.
The ARRI look library is available from the Software Update Package (SUP) 5.0 for ALEXA Mini and Amira cameras.
Numbered within nine theme groups: application, black-and-white, contrast, environment, film, period, season, special, and tinted. Each look provides a unique but repeatable aesthetic when combined with the cinematographer’s choice of lens.
According to ARRI, Creative collaborations will be made easier - whether over large distances or between different units on the same production - and time savings facilitated in post production, since scene-specific or even shot-specific looks can be implemented long before the final grade.
Developed by ARRI Media, additional looks inspired by customer feedback are likely to be added to the library in the future.
