I've never had this problem until today I'm making a video on Star Ocean but when I add the video to Hitfilm the colors get completely washed out like this

When it's supposed to look like this

I don't know how to fix it

I use an HP Pavillion Gaming Laptop 15

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-9300H CPU @ 2.40GHz  2.40 GHz

64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

8GB Ram that I upgraded to 40GB a few months ago

I recorded the game footage through the Elgato HD60+ using the app 4K Capture Utility

Both the PlayStation 5 and the game itself was in HDR mode

And I'm using the free version of Hitfilm

    @JNation I cannot be sure of this, but the images look to me like you may accidentally bumped the opacity on you video a tad. You might double check that it is at full 100%.

    Go to your Project Settings, click the "Advanced" tab and make certain Color Depth is set to 16 or 32 bit (try 16-bit Float). Note raising color depth will slow HF down as 16-bit color or 32-bit color push more data than 8-bit.

    Go to the "File" Menu, top left and select "Options." In Options go to "Render Options," and make sure "Limit video decoding to 8-bit..." is NOT checked.

    If you recorded HDR you probably have 10-bit video. Hitfilm, by default, works at 8-bits/channel, so your color data is truncated. Setting a higher color depth for your project should fix the problem.

    Sry if the comment above me is gibberish lol. But the images are both unedited screenshots and changing the color bit depth didn't work.
