Hi there
It may not be an exact problem of MPC, I have the 4K edition of Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogy in new 4K edition, no matter to say how it took an age to be downloaded (466GB) and although I surprised by the new atmospheric DTS Audio, but disappointed by the yellow tint all over these them, first people were bothered for the green tint of the standard blue-ray editions and now we have yellow tint in new 4K editions, seriously?!

I just uploaded the screen shots here to show what exactly it looks like and I'm sure rest of the Tolkien and Peter Jackson fans are also disappointed by this too.

Any help on how it is possible to change color settings to get a better one is appreciated, as you see even the grass and trees are not green and fresh like the standard editions of the movie, while the yellow tint is almost everywhere, I tried using different players too or change MPC render settings and no chance.
Thx

I assume this is the HDR version? Then you need to select either "MPC Video Renderer" or "madVR" as video renderer in MPC-HC settings. Those are the only ones that support HDR.

I think I tried that too but will check again, thx for answer, meanwhile can u describe why HDR version may cause this?
And as I said it’s 4K edition released just before last Christmas.

And also maybe I should mention that my monitor is neither 4K nor HDR, can this be the problem?

Ah thanks a lot it's fixed color is awesome now with MPC Video Renderer, tried madVR too but CPU skied to 100% and it was so stuttering although my CPU is decent enough (i7 3770K 3.7Ghz).

Your monitor does not need to be HDR. But you do need to use a compatible video renderer, because those are the only ones that are able to convert the HDR colors to the normal color range. This process is called tonemapping.

HDR not only uses a wider range of colors (10-bit), the brightness of colors is also not lineair from low to high, but curve shaped. That is why with a "dumb" renderer you get these washed out colors like in your screenshots.
