    I have been using Premiere for a long time but recently started using LUTS and getting into grading. Has anyone run into the problem where the grade you see in the preview is completely different than the exported file??? I tried exporting using H.264 and as a Quicktime file but both are coming out very flat- almost like the LUT isn’t taking. If someone could help or post a link where this has been discussed before I would appreciate it. Screenshots are below of the difference.

    Example1:
    In Pr

    H.264 Export

    Example2:
    In Pr

    H.264 Export

    How are you viewing that exported file? IN QT? It’s highly inaccurate…wrong, busted. Use VLC player, see what it shows.

    Thanks for responding. I only use VLC for viewing media. I wonder if there are some settings for making sure the LUT is applied that I am missing? This seems to be a widespread issue.

    this should work for the latest premiere:

    Mac: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/LUTs

    /Creative
    /Technical

    Win: \Program Files\Adobe\Common\LUTs

    \Creative
    \Technical

    Thanks all. Youtube University helped out again!!! Long story short- you have to make sure your LUTs are copied into Media Encoder too- assuming you export from there!
