I'm on PD 365. I found out that LUTs and color presets are now part of the "effect room". So far, so good, but I've one remark and one question regarding LUTs:

1) The only way to see the effect seems to be drag-and-drop to the clip. It would be easier to just select the clip, and then to see the preview of a LUT in the preview window by selecting the LUT. Now, to try out different LUTs, you have to drag the LUT to a clip, see the results, remove the effect, try the next LUT etc.

2) Is there a better way to apply a LUT to multiple clips than dragging it to each clip seperately? Is it possible to somehow group clips and apply one LUT to the whole group? It would be great if PD had something like an "effect layer" which could span multiple clips.

Until the most recent update, LUTs were part of the Fix / Enhance tool and a preview was provided, and you may want to let CL know that you'd like to have the ability to preview and apply LUTs to multiple clips by using Rate Us & Provide Suggestions from PD's File menu.

In the meantime, it might help to use Undo (Ctrl+Z) and Redo (Ctrl+Y) when cycling through a number of possible LUTs you've tried, then you can hover the mouse over the small orange "i" icon at the start of the clip to see the name of the currently applied LUT:

You can also click on the heart icon at the lower right of the LUT in the FX room and it will be added to My Favorites so you can easily find it later on:
