    Applying a LUT to improve tracking in mocha AE?

    Dan Nr. 4380238

      I am currently doing background clean-up in After Effects on ungraded ARRIRAW footage, interpreted as Loc C, which naturally has very low contrast. The footage will remain like this till color grading, which happens after my retouching. I use mocha AE to track the footage and attach my retouch layers from Photoshop to the background.

       

      Since I am using ARRIRAW footage I have to export each clip to a different format before I can use it in mocha AE.

       

      Here is my question: Since I have to render out the footage anyway, would it help with the tracking if I applied a LUT or a simple contrast enhancement (e.g. using curves) to it?
