Hi Ismael,

A couple of things you could do. The simplest is to add an effect to the shot which is Effects>ColorCorrection>BroadcastSafe. In its settings change the mode to Very Conservative. Disable the luminance limiting then adjust the Saturation Max Out to something like 100 and it's start threshold to 95. If it is still too high tweak the RGB output.

Alternatively, add a Simple Color Corrector (not the 3-way) In it's Visual settings open the 'Limit Effects' section, use the eye dropper to select the red then use the Saturation control to reduce the red levels. Adjust the Limiters Saturation and Hue softness widths to blend it in better.

Hope these help
