Edit Sonic Colors - Ultimate.exe with a hex editor
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\SonicColorsUltimate\rainbow Shipping and open Sonic Colors - Ultimate.exe in a hex editor, such as HxD.
  2. Search and replace both instances of 39 8E E3 3F for 8E E3 18 40.

This is for 21:9, might work for other aspect ratios by replacing 8E E3 18 40 for the correct hex for your aspect ratio found from the WSGF's Common Hex Values but haven't tested. UI seems fine but cutscenes are stretched.
