Last important bits of information before you download these...

How should I grade my footage? Do you have a LUT?
Shoot RAW. Then import the DNGs into After Effects (on a 16-bit or 32-bit project!). At that step, the Adobe Camera RAW screen will show up (you can make it appear later on by right-clicking on the name of the clip, interpret footage, main, more options). There you can load the Flaat settings, select your white balance, add a curve or adjust exposure if you wish (I won't give you a LUT, just add a simple contrast curve if that's what you want), and accept to go back to After Effects.
Two ways to apply the Flaat settings:
* expand the little menu on the right, load settings, look for the xmp file on your hard drive
* copy the xmp file to your Adobe Camera RAW settings folder (something like C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings), then when loading the image just go to the presets tab and select Flaat
Doing this will override most settings in ACR, so make sure you're fine with losing your current settings before applying Flaat (the only settings that will remain as they were are white balance and exposure).

Is this free? And DOWNLOAD
Well, it used to be donationware, but since I think it's not very useful for anybody anumore, it's completely free now. Feel free to donate if you find it useful, but I really doubt that will be the case (not only because most BMC users are working with Resolve nowadays, but also because this tool was designed for an old version of AE and I'm not sure it works as well as I would like with more recent versions).
