Photoshop / SpeedGrade: can't get .look file from SpeedGrade to work

Howdy all

I'm working on a new set of brand styles for my company and stumbled up the color lookup adjustment layer. I know my needs aren't exact to it's functionality, but what I'm looking to do is have an easy way to apply our brand colors to a photograph. Color Lookup seems like a great option, but I cant get it to work.

I've read that PS can't make a .look file, so I switched over to speedgrade after reading some tutorials. The problem is, when I export the look file and apply it to an image PS... nothing happens.

I'm pretty sure I'm missing something in SpeedGrade, but I thought I'd post here to see if anyone knows how to get Photoshop to apply the color correctly.

Sounds like you did miss something in SpeedGrade.

Photoshop will apply whatever color adjustments are in the 3DLUT you choose.
But if you saved a 3DLUT without any color adjustments in it...
