Before Live ( or any host for that matter) can see what needs to be automated in Kontakt, you first need to go to the 'automation' tab in Kontakt. Use host automation, not midi cc's ( host automation has a higher resolution than midi). You will see a list of host automation Id's. Drag those to the parameters in Kontakt that you want to automate, and save the Kontakt patch. Now press the 'configure' button in Live, and move the automation-enabled controls in Kontakt. They should now appear in Live.
