Shadow has announced the official release of the Color Enhancement feature, or 4:4:4 coloring for those that have used this setting in the Alpha/Beta clients.

This announcement can be found on the official Shadow forums, and the new feature will be available on all clients for Windows, macOS, Linux, and iOS/tvOS devices that support 4:4:4.

For those that are unsure what 4:4:4 colors are, basically, it is uncompressed colors coming straight to your computer screen versus being compressed down and limited as Shadow initially streams as. You can check out my impressions of this new feature here - I SEE THE COLORS!

Something to note is that utilizing the new Color Enhancement features does require hardware that can handle it. With that being said, some devices may not be able to handle the feature and will fail or crash if you enable it.

It is also unavailable for the Shadow Ghost.

Shadow recommends that this feature only be enabled when it is truly needed, such as video editing and/or photo editing. But, if your hardware can handle it, it would be a great feature to enable.
