Version 15 and 15.1 - can no longer disable embedded ARRI LUT on Alexa footage in source settings or "disable masterclip effects"
Premiere imports Arri LogC footage with the preview LUT from the camera embedded. In older versions of the software, this could be disabled as a masterclip effect or in the source monitor. This is no longer possible and becoming a huge problem for color workflow.

The comment below has a way to disable using the InterpretFootage option, but that only seems to work on the source clips. I have already synced all of my footage and edited the project with the synced clips. But changing the Input LUT to None on the Source clips does not affect my synced clips. How can I remove the ARRI LUT from all of my synced clips so I can export my timeline for color?

There is a change in the workflow related to ARRI footage with preview embedded LUT.
Earlier the embedded LUT was applied as Lumetri master clip effects and there were problems reported with the workflow e.g. increase in project size.
With the newer versions of Premiere, embedded LUTs are not applied as Lumetri master clip effect, but applied as Input LUT in InterpretFootage.
To disable the LUT, please do the following.
- Clip -> Modify -> InterpretFootage
- Select Input LUT to `None` in Color Management group.
Hope this helps.
