How to Fix Elgato Washed Out Colors for HD60, HD60 s & 4K 60 Pro

Written by

If you’ve been using Elgato (HD60, HD60 s or the 4K60 Pro) for recording your gameplay, you may have noticed a washed-out color in the video recordings. This can make your videos look less attractive, and can be frustrating if you’re trying to produce high-quality content.

Luckily, there’s an easy fix. Using a video editing app like Adobe Premiere Pro, you can change the color saturation and exposure to match the original colors. However, this only works for the recorded videos and not for the live video output from Elgato.

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 Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro on enhancing the color of the video.

Final Cut Pro

For Color Saturation:

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

For Color Exposure:

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

Adobe Premiere Pro

Add a Lumetri Color effect and edit the following Basic Correction:

  • Exposure: 0.1
  • Contrast: 25.0
  • Highlights: 4
  • Shadows: 0
  • Whites: 15.9
  • Blacks: 0.4

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

That’s it! Hope this quick settings enhance your future recording. Enjoy creating contents!
