I've downloaded a free preset online to make a distortion effect for my video so i don't have to waste time doing it myself. To use the preset, one should simply right click presets under the effects tab and click 'import presets', and click on the downloaded preset. When i do this, however, the pack with the effects doesn't show up like it should, in fact, nothing happens at all, and there's no sign of the effects pack i downloaded anywhere. IS THERE SOMETHING IM MISSING?
If this is something freely available, something that doesn't cost money, I can test it here if you post the link.
They worked fine for me as well. Showed up in the Presets bin.
Are they presets or LUTs?
From going to that website, the package is LUTs ... cubes with the .edl format.
They won't show in a presets search because they neither have the proper preset extension, nor are they presets.
A preset is a set of instructions as to how a particular control is supposed to be set ... but you can then go to the control and modify everything you want.
A LUT is a Look Up Table ... it's just data as to how the video signal prior to the LUT is to be changed by the LUT.
And would be used in the Basic tab's Input LUT slot, and/or the Creative tab's Look slot.
They shouldn't be LUT'S, they should be presets. When i download them they have the .prfpset extension. Is this the right extension for presets? Also, from the tutorial from the same site, they have no problem downloading and importing these .prfpset files into the presets folder and using them. When i do the same thing nothing happens.

I went to the site, downloaded ... copied the file out downloads to the desktop, then right-clicked Unzip, then went back to PrPro and did the Presets/Import thing ... and there it was. Selected, and voila, they appeared on my Effects panel.
Did you unzip them? It's about the only thing I can think of ...
Hey I tried that. And its not working for me honestly...Is there another method you can think about?

I tried to uzip them.. And the Unzipping part works but I cant get the files to show up in premiere pro.. Any ideas would be appreciated. - Junior The Mechanic -
This is an old thread. I would suggest starting a new, detailed post on exactly what you are trying to do, including the source of the presets and where you are trying to install them.
I have no trouble importing them either.
Maybe resetting preferences:
Rename 11.0 folder to Old_11.0 in
Windows: C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\11.0
Mac: Documents > Adobe > Premiere Pro > 11.0
Make new project (dont open old) and see if you can import the preset.
Thank you so much, that actually worked! There should be no reason why you have to though, the adobe products can get pretty annoying sometimes...
Just a comment on 3rd part Presets.
Find some way of managing and filing them so they can be re located and reinstalled,,, in case next versions of PPro do not carry them through.
This can cause legacy projects to have issues!
now where. i made a new folder in Douments > Adobe > Premiere Pro > Old_14.0. There is new stuff there. How do i import my presets now
me too when i import, they dont come up
A wee bit more information ... what are you trying to install? How? Where? And what version of PrPro ... number-dot-number.
Before i reformat my desktop i already have a premiere pro 2017 and used a preset from a youtube tutorial, but after i reformat it and installed the same premiere pro, i cant import the same preset and other too.
"I can't import the same preset and other too"
At this point, it would be handy to know what preset you're trying to import.
I am dealing with a similar problem. Lumetri preset created by a friend who is working on the same project.
The presets won't save in the project (Another problem we are trying to work around) So he saved presets and sent them to me. In the correct file type, prfpset. Unzipped folder, the whole nine yards. When I go to import from presets folder adobe can't see the preset files.
Any ideas why?
I can see the files outside of the importing. They are there. But Adobe isn't seeing them.
Hmmm ... I can't repro that, and wonder if there's a folder permissions issue involved. Not a high probability, but a possibility.
If the presets won't save in 'the project', but he was able to save them in another project, that would indicate something amiss with that particular project. You might try creating a new project file, then importing the old project file and assets through the Media Browser and see if that fixes the issue. Another possibility.
alexs11053833 - Thanks for this, sadly it didn't work for me.
After "upgrading" to 2019 PPro fails to import the presets. Followed the steps exactly and PPro just does nothing.
ADOBE - This is costing us, please help or fix.

Presets I'm trying to use are here:
Those presets might be corrupt, cannot import in any version of Pr, windows or mac.
Gave up on finding similar presets, made adjustments using Lumetri and was able to get the footage close enough.
