    Thanks for responding!

    Here's my info:

    iMac - 10.15.4 Mac OS Catalina
    AE 2020 - Version 17.7.0 (Build 45)
    AE 2021 - Version 18.2.1 (Build 8)
    Quicktime files- Prores 4444, Prores 422HQ

    Workflow:

    After years of issues with colors/gamma shifting from AE to Quicktime to Premiere I have found one workflow that works file (attached).

    - project settings are set to rec 709 gamma 2.4, simulating what will be done in premiere
    - Use Display Color Management is checked ON
    - Simulate output is selected and I choose a custom setting My Custom RGB and use: Covert to ->Output profile->rec 709 gamma 2.4. Then below that Reinterpret As -> check ON preserve RGB-> Simulation profile HD-709-A

    Last I start working on my animation and at the top layer I add a LUT from here:

    That was mentioned in the youtube video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t61b6Nk-YPw&list=PL2UPWhj3IUOTuzy293HsjBgeY2-_FnycN&index=4

    Using this color management recipe, I have been able to have what is in AE be the same in Quicktime,Premiere and ultimately the same on Frame io/youtube. Though youtube looks different for everyone due to other color management tweaks on chrome, safari and probably on youtube itself.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    *** EDIT ***
    For anyone reading this and wanting to try out this workflow... I just realized that this fix is only for Mac users. I just watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcNWzP-vLJY&t=300s describing how colorsync is applying a gamma shift on quicktime, safari, chrome, etc. so basically Apple is applying a gamma shift that no else is doing. Ridiculous, its like I'm back to square one on how I should deal with color management....
