Version 14 and above gives me washed out image. In V.13.1.15 everything is good.
I've been working on a project for a long time, which involved going from version 13 to 14 during editing. And I've found that ever since the 14 version, the imagery gets washed out. Less contrast, black and white levels are off. Didn't really think much of it since I was solely cutting and working with a LUT on top, but getting the cut back from color grading now and about to do final export to master, this is pretty **** critical.
I've tried converting the files to other containers/color spaces/codecs and I can't find a consistancy in what is causing the problem.
What makes it even more confusing is that when I roll back as far as to the old 2019 Premiere (V.13.1.5)-
This is kind of sad.. and is basically telling me I can't trust what I'm looking at anymore. Please look into this? :(

When I use files from Nikon cameras, I have the same issue. Especially when I have a image with transparency on top (logo, watermark). Footage from 3 different camera from Nikon does this since version 14 and was ok before. I have to transcode everything in an other format, or remove watermarks.
