I'm seeing odd yellowish/greenish patches in my footage

I was recently shooting on a ski hill in very flat light with a total overcast.  When I played back the footage I noticed repeated instances of greenish and/or yellowish patches appearing in various areas of the snow.  Could this just be an issue of not being able to process the bright white snow in such flat, grey light?

Re: I'm seeing odd yellowish/greenish patches in my footage

I'd more play with the settings at a quiet time with similar conditions.   Snow is tricky to get right at first.   

 

Example that I think looks good:

Hi @andyd378,

 

May I know the exact settings you're using?

Also please provide the SD card brand and model.

 

Thanks,

-Jay

5K, 30fps, Protune on, ISO limit of 1600.  Cards are 32GB Sandisk Extreme as recommended by GoPro

Additionally, I'm also not very pleased with the resolution.  This was shot at 5K and the project is set to 4K so I would expect this to be much sharper than it is.  Again, I realize that the lighting was less than optimal but it just seems like it ought to be better than what I'm getting.

Got it @andyd378,

 

Looks weird.

 

Have you tried resetting the camera and install a new update?

 

Check if that will happen again.

If issue persist please contact our Customer Support team via phone or chat.

"Play with the settings at a quiet time"?  Play with what settings?  The Fusion offers very few options to "play" with.
