AME LUT gotcha
on May 14, 2019 at 3:24:47 pm

Heads up - If you add any of your own LUTs they go into the Technical or Creative folder for LUTs inside the Premiere Pro application package. I've had to do that for Sony and Panasonic cameras. When you export from Premiere, then you are OK. However, if you export through AME, you must have also added these same LUTs into AME's application package. Otherwise, those shots will export/render without the LUT applied.

Oliver,

You shouldn’t be putting the LUTS in the app packages individually, they should go in

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

Windows File Path: \Program Files\Adobe\Common\LUTs

Inside the LUTs folder add these two folders:

Creative
Technical

This way they are available to all Programs.

(Only applies to CC2018 and newer)

I don't see any LUT folders in either of the two Common folders. Unless you have to create a LUTs folder manually.

OK. I ran a test. Yes, if you create these folders in the Common folder and place the LUTs in there, it works across the apps. For some reasons though, I had to create these folders. They didn't already exist. Thanks.

Yeah...as you discovered, you do have to create the folders. I meant to include a link with the excerpt I quoted.

https://mixinglight.com/color-tutorial/permanently-adding-luts-lumetri-colo...

The “Common” folder method is the sanctioned Adobe way to do it. The “App Package” method is a hack, and can lead to problems, like the one you encountered originally.

[John Pale] "The “Common” folder method is the sanctioned Adobe way to do it"

Thanks. The only problem with either approach is that Adobe links these LUTs by their relative stack positions, which have been sorted by their alphabetical file names. If you add any LUT into either app package or the common folder, it will shift the alphabetical order. This means any sequence where you previously used a LUT in the basic or creative Lumetri tab, that LUT may now be in a different relative position within the LUT stack order and your sequence may now be referencing the wrong LUT.
