When I import Amira Log C material into premiere and drags the clips to the timeline it seems like Premiere is auto adding some sort of REC709 LUT to the footage with no options to disable it, even on export.
I want to be in control of what is happening with the footage I import and be able to export Log C sequences out without having to copy paste into After Effects to do that. Is there a sollution to this ?
Having the same issue, but when I offline and online the files, they sometimes change to show the Log C correctly. But sometimes they remain with this rec709 LUT that can't be disabled. Any solutions ?
This is still an issue in the 2018 release.
We have projects going between different stages of proxies and offline and online media. The result is that some of the clips end up with the embedded LUT working and some don't, even though it says on all of them that the LUT is enabled.
I had a similar problem with Arri Amira Prores 4444 footage and found out the cause from the Arri website:
"When AMIRA footage is ingested into Premiere Pro, the appropriate LUT from the camera is automatically applied as a Lumetri effect, which can be toggled off if necessary."
The way to switch it off is to right-click the imported master clip(s) and go "Remove Masterclip Effects" , the cause of the baked-in look.
Hope that helps.
This no longer works in the 2015 release...
Hoping someone from adobe fixes this ASAP!
I've found another issue with the auto LUT is that it creates a large, unwieldily Premiere Project file which can take a long time to save.
To batch disable the Amira LUT, select all clips in a bin, then open the Effect Control panel and toggle the Lumetri Colour (AMIRA LUT) effect off.
The LUT can be turned on and off from here and will be updated in sequences.
Has anyone found a way to set this upon import?
It looks like it's going to be a better idea to apply this LUT to an adjustment layer
rather than each clip.
I just came across this issue myself. With Amira footage in 2015, Premiere automatically adds a LUT to each file that you cannot disable/delete. You can only toggle it off use the fx switch in the Master Effect panel. It also seriously bloats the size of the project.
My workaround (for now) is to import everything into a new project in Premiere and export it as an XML. Then I import the XML into my actual project. The LUTS are stripped out, and the project file drops significantly (my file reduced from 150MB to 1MB).
If you still need to apply the Amira LUT, apply one to the master effect of a clip, copy it in the Master Effect panel, select all the clips in your project panel and paste. This does not bring the project back up to its original bloated size.
that did it for me! thank you
Yep, this totally worked even on the latest version of premiere pro as of May 10th, 2016. I wish premiere didn't automatically apply LUT's to imported footage, especially when it was shot Log.
this video offers a good solution to this problem :
This said, it doesn't work if you already selected all your clips and right click "disabled the master clip effect"
and once you already disable the master clip effect, it seems that there isn't any way to batch reverse that action...
Please advise if you have a way !
Same issue with Alexa Mini ProRes4444 material...
I have 2 major questions:
1) after I do "disable master clip effects" - how do I bring back the LUT if I would wish to??? there's no undo for that action, there's no "enable master clip effects" ... why? I really dont like features that cant be reversed back if regretted... makes me nervous
2) WHAT is this LUT? What's the name of it? Where's is the LUT-file situated?
ok so nevermind, I get it now.
I was unschooled about the Master Effects panel.
Wanted to add this additional note, because the answer marked correct here and in other places did not work for me. I found the method below in this linked thread, and it works super easy.
Easy Fix: Reveal the clip in your project, right click and scroll to Modify > Interpret footage
In the interpret window, you'll see the Color Management section at the bottom has Input LUT: Alexa/Amira default. - change it to none.
