The Kodak 2393 LUT aka the Kodak 2393 LUT Film Print Emulation is one of my favorite Film Print Emulations to use when creating looks inside of Resolve. Davinci Resolve comes with a handful of useful LUTS in the Film Looks folder including some Kodak Print FiIm Emulations, but it does not come with The Kodak 2393 LUT. You can download the LUT below and add it into your Film Looks folder in Resolve.
A LUT is a Look Up Table, you can use LUTS to prepare footage for specific devices and you can use LUTS to quickly apply preselected color grades in one click.
Certain LUTS have been created to emulate famous film stocks inside of Davinci Resolve those LUTS are Film Print Emulations. Using a Film Print Emulation is common today to create certain looks inside of Resolve. For example The very popular Kodak 2383 LUT that comes with Davinci Resolve is a Film Print Emulation.
The images below have been graded inside of Davinci Resolve with the Filmmakers Powergrade which is build with the Kodak 2393 Film Print Emulation LUT.
Open up your project settings by clicking the small gear in the lower right corner of the window. Under the Color Management tab in the Lookup Tables section click on the Open LUT Folder button and add the Kodak 2393 LUT into you Film Looks folder.
