Vanessa & Ivo

Braga, Portugal


We are Vanessa and Ivo. We’re made of sun, sea and love. We’re looking for the romance and intimacy. We have a dog (Kira!) and two (!) cats – Rorschach and Baunilha. We listen to a lots of music and we watch lots of movies (specially those that go well with popcorns). Vanessa worked in a theater company, Ivo worked in cinema. We love cooking together and spend our evening in the sofa. Vanessa is organized, Ivo not so organized.

Vanessa & Ivo - Compass Luts

We're Vanessa & Ivo, wedding videographers. We shoot weddings since 2012 and if you've never heard of us, check us out at and About a year ago we launched our first set of LUTS, SB Luts (SB stands for Something Blue, our first brand, and it’s also the name of our Workshop). SB Luts was very, very successful, much more than what we anticipated. We had hundreds of sales for videographers all over the world, and received crazy feedback. So now, a year later, we decided to launch our new set of LUTs. We called them The Compass Luts, and it consists of 6 color LUTs and 1 Black and white. This LUTs are compatible with standard rec.709 files, shot in Neutral style with Sony, Panasonic and Canon cameras.

Vanessa & Ivo - SB Luts

We're Vanessa & Ivo, wedding videographers. We shoot weddings since 2012 and if you've never heard of us, check us out at and We decided to release this pack because we kept receiving questions about our grading process. These LUTs are not “cinematic” or “film like”. We're also really tired of the same "orange and teal" look that many LUT creators try to achieve. These are just looks that we created over time, that we like and use daily in our movies. They're warm, colorful and contrasty. In this pack you’ll find : 12 creative LUTs – 9 in color, and 3 in black and white. 4 technical LUTs - you can use the LUTs even if you already filmed with another preset. - Convert S-log2 to Neutral; - Convert Cine2 to Neutral; - Convert Cine4 to Neutral; - BONUS: Convert DJI D-Cinelike to Sony Neutral (this way you can match your drone footage and grade it with these LUTs) I use these LUTs with my footage shot in Neutral on Sony cameras. The results will be similar with any other camera that shoots neutral or regular Rec.709. Compatible with the a7s, a7s ii, a6000, a6300, a6500, GH4, GH5, Canon 5D/6D/7D/60D/70D/80D and any other camera that shoots Rec.709/Neutral. Why Neutral? Before switching to Sony cameras, we shot with Canon. Like most of you, I tried Cinestyle and a few other flat presets. Since we shoot mostly weddings, I quickly realized that these flat profiles are overkill and add time in post. Also, when we first started there was no easy way to grade and load LUTs inside Adobe Premiere, so I opted to switch to Neutral and then do some grading with CUDA accelerated plugins – mainly the native plugins inside Premiere, trying to speed-up the render process. Once LUTs became mainstream I decided to create my own presets to make the grading process easier. When we switched to Sony, I had to try S-log2 and the other Picture Profiles. As you know, they impose certain limitations during shooting (high ISO’s, for instance), and I can’t really “see” and “feel” what I'm shooting instantly, because it’s so flat! I decided to just disable the Picture Profiles, and shoot in Neutral. This allows me to shoot ISO 100, and I can get an instant feel as to what my images are going to look like after I grade them.
