Color Intelligence's Look Designer is a special plugin designed to make it much easier to create and use film looks. It was previously only available for DaVinci Resolve, where it naturally competed strongly with the internal color correction routines. Now there is also a version for Adobe's Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Basically, the plugin attempts to digitally replicate or simulate the traditional processes of analog film processing (developing, scanning and printing). Especially by using a subtractive CMY color system, the program wants to set itself apart from the competition. According to the manufacturer, the Adobe version offers access to the same tools and technologies as the Look Designer for DaVinci Resolve.
Since the Look Designer works scene-referred, Color Intelligence promises an automated export for several display devices in (among other things Netflix HDR, HDR10, Dolby Vision, Apple Pro displays) whereby the color correction is to be adapted automatically to each medium.
An explicit strength of the program are the numerous input color profiles, among which you can also find somewhat more exotic cameras such as the GoPro, Z-Cam, Kinefinity or iPhone templates.
Whether the workflow and the achievable looks are ultimately to one's liking can be clarified via a free demo version. Until further notice, Look Designer 2 is available at a special price of for a two-computer license. The comparable Resolve version currently costs . Whether the price for the Adobe version will also be raised soon is not entirely clear.
It's also unclear whether there will be a Windows version, because if we're reading this correctly, the current Adobe version only runs on the Mac and not on Windows. The Resolve version, on the other hand, is agnostic and also runs on Windows.
