If you’ve been using Elgato (HD60, HD60 s or the 4K60 Pro) for recording your gameplay, you probably notice the washed color in the video recording output. The video output makes the quality of your video less attractive, especially if you’re a content creator.

However, the fix mention on this tutorial doesn’t include the live video of Elgato, only the video output that usually upload in YouTube or Social Media page.

How to Enhance Color of Elgato Recording

To fix it, you need to fix the Color Saturation and Color Exposure of the video output. Most of the video editing program has these features. In the example settings below, we use Final Cut Pro on enhancing the color of the video.

  • Shadows: 0%
  • Midtones: 44%
  • Highlights: 85%

For Color Exposure:

  • Master – 0%
  • Shadows: -3%
  • Midtones: -21%
  • Highlights: -7%

Here are the before and after screenshot for the above enhancement.
