Where's my colour?

Hi all,
Does anyone know why when I export my project from Premiere Pro it loses (all?) the Lumetri values I've applied to it? I've heard that Quicktime is likely to desaturate your projects like this, but then I've exported projects many times in the past as a H.264, played through Quicktime, and I haven't had any problems.
It's very frustrating to see my project just the way I want it in Premiere, but almost RAW when it comes out the other end! Any tips, anyone?


Maybe this will help. On the left of this screenshot, you can see the two tracks I'm talking about, the "master" and the title of the video....

In the render menu you will see tabs at the lower middle (Audio, Video, etc.). I think, in the first tab in that line there is a check box which toggles between render with all effects and without. Please check that.

I'm afraid I can't see that option... :(

Hey out of curiosity, are you exporting through Media Encoder, and are you using LUTS in your grade? If you're using RAW/Log footage I'd assume yes?

If so this is likely an issue with not having the LUT in the Media Encoder folder on the hard drive. Just copy and paste the LUT from Premiere's Lumetri folder and paste it into the same location within the AME Lumetri folder. On PC, it's something like this:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder CC 2018\Lumetri\LUTs\Technical

Had something like this happen to me the other day at work with a new computer we bought and after a few failed attempts to change settings etc, realized it was as simple as this. Hope it work out.
