X-Rite ColorChecker Plug-in for Premiere Pro CC?
When will support for quick color matching using color charts like the X-Rite ColorChecker be added to Premiere Pro CC?
This is a great request that is certainly something we want to implement. Rest assured our engineers DO understand the importance of this feature and how to get the job done. We also know that the performance and stability of the app should be our #1 priority and that is where our focus is right now.

I think Adobe should gives us a hint was to where their priorities are for projects they are currently working on. Perhaps, somehow inform the users as to when to expect an add value feature. This way we can gauge the level of support. Nevertheless, for my workflow, the free version of da Vinci resolve seems to be more than adequate. In case of upgrading to the paid version, it is a one time payment and free updates for life.

Absolutely unacceptable that this has not be escalated.
It's one thing to praise a kid, even if he's not doing too well, in order to encourage him to learn, it's another thing to ignore the fact that Adobe is not doing almost anything to please its user base. You say they are doing what they said they would? Well, they are not, they have not improved any stability, they only brought new bugs that they then chose to not remedy before the next release came, even though lots of users were complaining about their ruined work. They also started claiming implemented requested features (albeit tiny ones, but still) when they have not been implemented at all. To me, Adobe at this moment is no different from Trump, and I hope that says enough.

@Sergiu Mihalache I'm afraid I'll have to deny any sort of attachment to Adobe, whatever you may think. While I use Adobe as part of my work, I use Resolve at home because I can't afford the subscription.
Yes, Francis' post was a year ago, what I'm pointing out though is that what was claimed, is born out in their current comms and the work put into the release.
You may think the release was a bit buggy, but that doesn't change the fact that, Adobe is doing what they said they would do.
I'm not going to ignore it when they do something right and only ever kick them for their mistakes.
I work in governent / education and it's well established that giving positive feedback to people for the things they do well, that you want them to keep doing is important (in addition to any constructive negative feedback).
I want the Adobe team to keep on commenting and giving accurate information in those comments. So I'm going to say that, to encourage them to keep on doing this.
Trust me, your point isn't lost, the number of posts in this thread with negative feedback is in no way in danger of being overrun by praise for Adobe.
If you want anything other than a wall of silence, maybe some positive reinforcement of the behaviours that you do want would encourage that.
@David Kettle: it sounds like you're part of the Adobe team, defending them here "incognito".
First of all, "Francis' pinned post is talking about prioritising (sic) stability" is very recent compared to the date when he took this suggestion "UNDER REVIEW" (June 07, 2019), which is still more than a year after this was first suggested _in this topic_. I bought my Colorchecker Video in 2016, hoping Adobe will give me a tool to use it...
Secondly, the latest release was definitely not stable. It has one new, and doubtfully useful, feature, but also came with bugs (and Adobe took its sweet time to fix them).
If you want to believe Adobe - that's your choice. All I am seeing is tens of very useful and important features requested for years, most of them under review for years, and almost nothing happening about it. One requested feature a year is not enough. Implementing dubious features like Auto Reframe when the Uservoice is full of really important requests shows us how much Adobe cares about its current customers: not at all. They are only interested in attracting new ones, hopefully amateurs that will be pleased to use 5% of the software for their basic needs and will not complain about everything else (or will, but it will bee too late, Adobe will have billed them for the whole year anyway). The ones that are already paying - well, they are paying, so why mind them?
David Kettle commented
To be fair, Francis' pinned post is talking about prioritising stability and we've seen that in the latest release. It's not just lots of new features, it's more about the stability of the program.
I'm more likely to give the benefit of the doubt given that we are seeing what was talked about actually happening with the updates.
So Francis saying that they do want to implement this is something I'm willing to believe. I'd also rather have a version which is well developed and works properly rather than something half baked.
So personally, I'm staying hopeful and looking forward to when this does arrive.
I just hope that it's not too far down the line.
I don't think Adobe will be walking away from Premiere, not as long as they have plenty of users paying each month. They might not offer any real support anymore, although they are pretending to work on suggestions and bug reports, but they definitely will not ever stop taking our money, even if they give nothing in exchange.
Matthew Laur commented
Have to assume that the total lack of attention to something this fundamental to the most basic use of an editor like PP means that Adobe will be walking away from this product. What does Adobe suggest we begin to use instead of Premiere? Planning for future client projects requires a sense of when Premiere's support will go away.
Juan de Armero commented
I need this feature to automatically setup color grading starting points and match other cameras like drones and action cameras on the shot. Is time consuming to get the vectroscope and align one by one the card. The way around is also time consuming create a profile for each camera for each shot, is overkilling. This feature will definitely cut a lot of time in the hundred of hours per project.
Jonah Walker commented
Yes yes yes, please this would be amazing. I love it's support in DaVinci Resolve and wish it was in Premiere itself.
I think this feature (and many others that have been requested, as well as fixes or optimizations) will not be implemented anytime soon, because Adobe doesn't see any economical reason to: we are paying them for Premiere anyway, but if they spend the time (which is money) to implement a feature requested by users that are already paying, they have nothing to win (since they can't increase the price with e.g $5 per month for a feature like this, so it's just some money spent with no gain, meaning a loss). They are only interested in totally new, flashy features that might attract new users and thus increase their revenues; the ones they already got paying they don't worry about anymore.
If this will have long-term effects remains to be seen, but Adobe is obviously more interested in increasing revenues by getting new customers than in keeping their current ones that they can't take more money from than they already do.

I understand that other software has this available. I would absolutely love this feature in Premiere Pro! It's much needed for my work.

Dominik Achatz commented
This would be a really great feature and save a ton of time!!!
Ed Benkowski commented
I cannot believe this is not a priority feature already.
Their "engineers DO understand the importance of this feature and how to get the job done", so the feature will not get implemented too soon, nobody at Adobe has the 10-12 work hours to do it, at least not in the next years, they are too busy counting the mountains of money they get from us.
Jan Bednarz commented
More support here. It's a simple but fantastic tool to fast track a lot of first stage colour correction thus saving editors time & money to do their work. But like others, I dont want to round trip to Resolve to do it.
