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'm also waiting for this.

LOLOLOL @ the official Adobe response: "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."
Suuuuure it is, Adobe. Sure it is. 😂😂😂😂

You'll end up like Avid on some old grandparents in Hollywood. Avid mastered the RED format after 4 years as others have long ago. System programmers and system administrators are the laziest professional groups. They always have one answer - "Why?"Color matching doesn't work well either. Premiere does not use Color Checker.

Why am not surprised that, nearly 2 years later, this tool/feature is still "Under Review"? Shame on you Adobe. And that sound you hear, is the pressure from tens and thousands of your dissatisfied users, crushing your financial baseline. Know what comes after that? Fossilization: go the way of the dinosaurs.

Not that I am happy to see so many users frustrated with adobe’s performance/direction/focus, for the money my company pays per year in licenses for a “pro” set, we really could buy a pro tool set.
Taking two years to implement a change that a coder could literally do in a weeks worth of work shows you how broken poorly implemented agile methodologies are.
Adam Rickman commented
I would agree with Sergiu mainly because this is me now actually. I've been editing everything in Davinci and actually no longer even work in Premeire. My company still has it because of other projects that randomly come in that need reworking, but most everything is in Resolve now. It took a little relearning but I've come to learn it and embrace it. There is no real reason to go round-trip anymore because I'm always in Davinci now. Premiere is more focused on being relevant to social media influencers and their latest updates show that rather than adding real professional tools, ie color chart support.

I've sussed it out. There is literally no incentive at this time for Adobe to implement this.
Showing my work:
DaVinci Resolve is FREE
User can export Premiere timeline as XML
Import XML timeline into FREE DaVinci Resolve
Color correct and grade to your heart's content with the FREE, world class tools in DaVinci Resolve
Export timeline from Resolve as XML
Import color graded XML timeline back into your Premiere project and continue editing to completion.
Absolutely no incentive for Adobe to put any time or resources into developing a feature in Premiere so long as Black Magic naively offers its product FREELY for users to round-trip projects between Premiere and Resolve for color grading. QED
James Lucas commented
I'm truly at a loss on how this didn't make it into the 2021 version. This is a basic workflow that's needed support for years now and Adobe still can't seem to get around to it. If I have to do my color corrections in Resolve, why bother editing in Premiere then. Especially when Resolve's weaknesses as an editor are far less annoying than Premiere's weakness at color corrections at this point?
Ricky Cahill commented
The complete lack of support for requests like this for features that are REALLY needed has finally made me go to resolve, bought the studio version which I'm learning and am doing my last project in adobe products at the moment.
Aaron Lewis commented
Premiere lacking core features like this one has pushed me to do more and more work in Resolve.
Craig Hickerson commented
Please add this feature! I love how I can make entire objects disappear using AI but this important tool is still unavailable.
Cameron McFadyen commented
Unbelievable that this still isn't implemented yet. Oops, gotta go. Premiere just crashed again.
M. Milic commented
We need this please!

I'm with Dale, lets get this done!
Still waiting... Lumetri Color is not cutting it. No color matching function, and HLS can't distinguish backgrounds from skin tones like Resolve can.
With nearly 600 upvotes, this is one of the most-requested features that professionals have been asking for, and yet Adobe is asleep at the wheel. The entire 2020 release cycle has been plagued with so many bugs it's unreal. I built a new machine and only have access to 2020 versions of Premiere now, all of which contain the same bugs that cause renders and exports to crash. Had my ticket escalated to senior engineer and still couldn't resolve, yet I have to create work-arounds to get simple features like text (native) and photoshop layers (static, not even animated) to not crash my exports. The issues are consistent and can be duplicated on every machine I try it on. How do I go through this process with senior engineers yet it's not even on the list of know issues??

Fully switched to Resolve and seeing my GPU actually get utilized is PURE JOY! Studio 17 coloring is ABSOLUTE MAGIC! Stop the Suffering!
Stability has been a HUGE issue for all 2020 versions, seems like this will NEVER happen. Ready to switch our company over to Resolve and be done with the crashes and lack of integrated color chart recognition.
Chris Fox commented
resolve and final cut both already have this, would love to see it implemented very soon. This would be a huge impact on workflow.
Craig Moore commented
Would love this. Davinci Resolve has it easily.
