Same issue for me, I used to be able to do Chroma 444 8 bit or Chroma 420 10/12bit and enable HDR in my games and it would kick in.
Now if I do that I get a green screen. If use the Default OS in the NVCP and have Windows 10 handle the HDR it works.
I have been using HDR for 6 months with movies and they are OK little darker and washed but you see the brightness effect.
When using any PC game with HDR it works before the Creators Update and the HDR makes my desktop/application dark and washed out.
So far I am not impressed with HDR, is the darker look and washed colors supposed to look this way? I am convinced it is now, I just ran the Nvidia HDR test script demo run "hdr.bat". When switching the image from KITE to color pattern the reds and all colors are so dim.
If I use the xbox one s for Deadpool UHD Bluray it looks better then what is happening on the PC. Deadpool UHD is little darker and the colors look a little washed but no where near the dark and washed effect I get on the PC.
Overall frustrating and if anyone has any tips let me know.
I am doing HDR wrong? Even before Creators Update, my HDR looked exactly like everyone's compliant today. Before Creators Update did everyone's HDR look bright and colorful?
I do not think my HDR expectations are off, something is def wrong but please set me straight.
