Exporting over saturated clips in media encoder

This is the weirdest thing. When I export a clips straight from premiere they export fine. When I batch export the same set of clips, they come out over saturated and high contrast.
My settings are the same straight out of premiere and media encoder. Am I missing something? Two example screenshots attached.

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

NO!!!!!!!!!

 

This is the WRONG solution ... do NOT EVER add LUTs to the program/package files locations! They do have a specific location for users to add, which does NOT screw up things like this does. In several other ways you haven't even encountered yet.

 

The items in the package/program locations are expected to be exactly the same in ALL the video apps, Premiere Pro, AfterEffects, MediaEncoder, and Prelude. They are not accessed by name, but by relative location sorted computer alpha-numeric. In other words, if you use the 6th one down in Premiere, no matter the name! ... MediaEncoder, Ae, and Pr will use the 6th one down.

 

All users should park their own LUTs in the specified location as shown in the chart below ... note, you need to add the final folder in each tree, the Technical (for the Basic tab LUT dropdown) and the Creative (for the Creative tab LUT dropdown).

 

Using this setup, ALL the apps will access the LUT by name ... properly. I also setup an icon shortcut on the desktop so I can quickly get to these folders to add or delete LUTs. Plus, I add a suffix ... number and letter ... to serve two functions: first to get mine showing first, and second to organize them.

 

Something like:

01 A low-sat neutralize

01 B high-sat neutralize

07 A high contrast shadows/low highlights

FIXED!

Believe it or not it was a very simply fix. I had added LUTs in Premiere to the clips but the LUTs were not exporting over to Encoder. So, if you have installed any LUTs in Premiere you MUST also install them in Encoder. Just make sure you install them in the same place and folder you installed them in Premiere. I had assumed they would carry over from Premiere to Encoder but... nope. So, what Encoder was doing was making it's best guess as to how to interpret the color grade.

 

Hope this helps anyone else with the same problem.

Great, i was about to reply to your mail with two ideas. One was to try without GPU Acceleration or checking the LUT´s if you use them.

Hi R_Neal:

 

When I go to my Program Files>Adobe>Common, the only thing there is a folder that says Plug-ins and that's it. There is no folder for LUTs

If there is not folder you make one, next to the Plug-ins folder.

LUTs with 2 sub folders Creative and Technical.

As noted in my previous post ... and also mentioned by Ann ...

CB,

 

It would be good to see the Export dialog right-side in  a screen-grab. This is a really weird thing.
