LUTInvert will generate the inverse of a 3D LUT, assuming a CMSTestPattern-style image as input.
Have you ever wanted to integrate footage into a project that looked good on your monitor but where you didn't have the Cineon or DPX source If you have the grade or LUT for your show, you can use LUTInvert to generate the inverse of that grade or LUT. You can then use the inverted grade/LUT to bring the footage that looked good on your monitor into the Cineon or DPX space for your show.
Caveats: 3D LUTs are generally pretty low resolution, using 17, 33 or 65 steps in each dimension. We can generate the inverse with this node, but it won't be exact.
The Blink source code is available on Nukepedia and on github here:
Here we have the original CMSTestPattern image, the image with a grade applied and finally a 'inverse' image for that grade generated by LUTInvert.
