you need to specify the MtoA libraries in the command line.

It would be :

C:\solidangle\mtoadeploy\2017\bin\kick.exe -l C:\solidangle\mtoadeploy\2017\shaders C:\Users\pc\Desktop\stereo.ass

And do not export the color manager node.

That is normal. The mtoa shaders were loaded from C:\solidangle\mtoadeploy\2017\shaders, and nothing was loaded from "." (the current directory)
