Hello, On the left is the preview in premier and on the right is the exported file, I have tried the QT gamma lut and saturated the footage too much. I used the h.264 and all the regular export settings.

We'd need your system, the settings, and your monitor plus any calibration you've done.

 

Here's some links to the general issue of color management, which is what you're having troubles with.

Are you working with proxies and are the proxies toggled off while you're coloring?

 

Another thing to try is using Software Encoding rather than Hardware Encoding on export.

It won't necessarily have a huge impact like what you're showing in your pictures, but the point of working with good quality footage is to have color latitude. If you're referencing the proxies when you are coloring, then you're cutting out all of that color information. I tried to make a small example here (it's going to be compressed and look like crap but hopefully gets the point across): 

You can hopefully see that the color information is different between the two. On my screen you can actually see that there are less pixels in the proxy version, less color data, but it's all getting mushed up in compression. In most situations - the grade that gets applied to the original footage on export is probably not going to have a drastic difference, but I'm bringing this up just in case it does in this instance. If your footage was in log but then you're applying a gamma curve to the proxy video, the results may not be as intended. It's at least worth looking into, even if it's not the bigger answer here. You want to be grading your original media - not your proxies.

This video demonstrates a method to have your rendered images that are upload to YouTube look like what you see in the GUI of Premiere Pro.
