Lumetri and LUT should be saved automatically within the project.
If i'm transfering my projects external LUTs are not saved in the project and all coloring is lost. So i have to install my external luts on the other pcs first but just saving it in the project file would be so much easier even if i work on other versions of premiere it often happens that i loose all my coloring information :-/

The issue is even worse, because Premiere doesn't even recognize that it's missing a LUT, and there is no function to relocate those LUTs and re-link them. One has to literally go shot by shot and re-apply the LUTs on a per shot basis, if the project is transferred to a different computer, even if that other computer has all the same LUTs.

This would be SO helpful!

LUTs are very small, so it's not a big deal for them to be embedded.
The bigger issue is the way Lumetri handles LUTs. They aren't referenced specifically, so unless you have all the exact same LUTs on both systems, your odds of loading the wrong one are pretty high even if you have the correct installed on both. Embedding would fix this.

LUTs are very small files. It's not a big deal to copy them over with the project file.
It IS a big deal for Adobe to spend limited resources on adding new features.
I don't think this is a big enough issue to warrant those resources.
I agree that projects should be portable, with minimal steps required to transfer to another system.
I think this idea could be part of a bigger function called something like "project transfer" which gathers all LUTs, fonts, .mogrts, presets, other elements used in the project (except footage), and dumps them all into a new folder within the project folder.
It would be less extreme than Project Manager as it would not gather the footage.
