i am doig a test in chronamator i want to put some footage in black and white.
i dont do a temp render since the file is too long and i only want to get a portion on that file as b&W.
i set the in and out points and i do a render nothing happens, it stays in color.
sorry i got it i was using the wrong tools... however now i got a render in black and white that slowly becomes color again.

Make sure you didn't key frame it to 0 desaturation by the end of the clip. There shouldn't be any other keyframes if you want it constant. Though I have no idea why you are grading in Chromy, but whatever floats your boat.

Premiere is awesome for this. Just look in the color correction and effects section. It is much easier to grade in your editing app because importing and exporting and importing again and etc. isn't necessary. Chromanator is more useful for visual effects shots that require compositing such as green screening, cloning, masking, and all the other effects Tarn has guided us through in his tutorials. (oh, and Arktic) The desaturation tool is there so you can match a shot to it's background, and things like that. But the Premiere guide or the Adobe support forum is a better place for these things.
