Modern Fujifilm cameras are renowned for their built-in film simulations, however only a handful of photo editors are capable of replicating them.
Presented here are a set of CLUTs (colour look up tables) that can be used by software such as Affinity Photo and RawTherapee. They have been created by photographing the HaldCLUT identity image with a Fuji XE2 and using the film simulations from Fujifilm’s own RAW FILE CONVERTER (RFC) along with a neutral reference (“Standard Color”). They can produce very close results to the original simulations.
Included are the X-Trans II versions of Provia, Astia, Velvia, Classic Chrome, Pro Neg Std and Pro Neg Hi.
They will also soon be available in G’MIC which can be used both in GIMP and standalone.
Affinity Photo – create a LUT adjustment layer, select “Infer Lut” then select the identity file and in the second dialogue the desired simulation. You can then save the adjustment as a profile for quick access in the future. As it’s a layer you can blend/mask as desired.
RawTherapee – set up the main HaldCLUT package then go to the install location and add the profiles to a subfolder in the Color folder (also restart RT).
1. AP RAW -> AP + Velvia LUT -> Fuji RFC Velvia -> RFC neutral export + Velvia LUT. Exporting from RFC will give the most accurate results, converters like Affinity and RawTherapee produce slightly different base colours and tones and can lead to small differences in output.
2. AP RAW + Classic Chrome LUT -> RFC Classic Chrome.
3. AP RAW -> AP + ProNegHi LUT -> RFC ProNegHi.
4. AP RAW -> AP + Classic Chrome LUT -> RFC Classic Chrome.
