OBS changing quality when tabbed into game.

I recently started using OBS and was able to stream Yakuza Kiwmai start to finish with no issues and was a pretty solid stream. It was clear, and minimal lag, my specs are also an RTX 2070, Intel i7-8700 with 500 mbps ethernet streaming 1920x1080 at 6000 bit rate, I also followed Nvidias guide to set up the best settings overall for Yakuza and my friends say it was very crisp and was able to stream solid 60 fps at 2550x1440 (just dropped it as most of friends watch on their phones). Now I am just curious how this is working as Sekiro is already an odd PC port, as VSync is not in the in game menu, the frame cap is 60 (unless you use an exterior program) and it only has Windowed and Fullscreen. So when I am tabbed out it looks crisp (as seen in the first image) but when I tab back into the game the stream quality turns greyish and the frames dips very low. I am just curious if this is a common issue or if there is something I could work around with.

Thank you so much and have a wonderful day :)

Set your color range to 709 partial and use VLC as your media player to check the recordings, not windows' built in one

It rather looks like not all effects are captured (conflict? hooked too early??? there is few settings in the game capture source of the OBS! and single game capture source always was wise choice for the application).

Game functions of the OS? Hardly believable that you need them when you already running OBS application... Follow the white rabbit.

Really confused on what you are referring to

The "white rabbit" is about Mathematics. Nice PC but a lot of resources just wasted for nothing. The more you advance - the more strange things you'll notice. Don't take in mind. Just Philosophy.

Is there a way to configure my PC more efficiently?

No. It is about child books: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Carroll#Alice_books
It is about the wonder, the beauty, the magic.

You need to look only at this words from my post (it was written about OBS setup, all other was written about your current PC setup):
...hooked too early... settings in the game capture source...
...single game capture source...
The capturing of the application depends on the point where you intercepting (hook) the screen image that it is rendered by the application itself.
The result image may be modified by a number of programs that intercepting the rendered image, modifies it and then your PC continues to draw the image (FPS counters on the screen, Temperature indicators over the game, the Steam's overlay etc.). So, if final effects of the game are drawn only when main picture is ready, then there is chance that OBS will capture not full image but only part of it - without the effects (this all depending how game was written).

Some streamers uses the 2 PC setups with the capture card, to always catch the final image as it seen on theirs screens.
