Dynamic Link to After Effects Colors

When I create a dynamic link between Premiere Pro and After effects the colors completely turn back to flat. In Premiere Pro I always change the color interpretation to the Sony space shown below.

From here at the end of my editing I apply color grading to the footage. Below is a shot of what it is meant to look like.

AFTER going and linking to AE for a quick modification to a clip, the color comes back completely wrong.

Just spent 30 minutes with Adobe connected to my computer only for some person to just click around and tell me I should always be in Rec709..... Hoping someone on here can help me, otherwise Ill keep having these coloring issues. I just got past the barrier of useing a Gamma Correction LUT pre-export...

Here is a good explanation and solution by Karl Soule back on YouTube:

This workaround worked for me on a vast roto video editing project.

These are my project settings from the research I could find online,

If I try to do the same "interprate footage" in AE, the exposure blows out completely and ruins it in the opposite direction.

I guess you should also change your working Color Space in the AE Project Settings to Rec.709. From there you should do the same for your footage in AE as you did in Premiere. Change the interpretation of the footage to the Sony S-Log3 color space.

 

Let me know if this works for you.

It seems that any combination of Premiere and AE being in S-Log doesnt let the color come out correctly, and always ends up over exposing.

And what sequence color space?

 

I think for comps, AfterEffects settings need to match the Premiere sequence settings.

Here are the composition settings, the project settings screenshot above shows the color space. Unless there is another place to look, let me know, im not that familiar with AE.
