Possible bug - Distorted/Rippling effect on Second monitor looking at full screen playback
I'm using 2 LG 4K monitors. One is my editing desktop for Premiere Pro the other is for monitoring Video output.
All settings are fine.
NVidia 2070 Super feeding these two monitors via Display Ports. Nvidia drivers on 471.11 and Intel latest on 22.214.171.12466. Windows 10 all updated.
I have noticed on PP 15.2 (and 14.9) a slight 'ripple effect' and minor Video break up on the second video monitor output when there are panning shots - up/down & across - ie when video is not static. This is quite subtle but annoying.
Looking at timeline playback of the Program Reference monitor on the Desktop - this is solid and does not exhibit same problem.
I have done a lot of tests and went back to my PP 2019 version 13.1.5.
Amazingly this ripple effect distortion on Video Monitor output goes away and playback is excellent - HD and 4K video sources with PP 13.1.5.
Has anyone else encountered this weird effect on a second Video monitor? lately?.
Conclusion so far is that it is Premier Pro release dependent.... tbd
All Exported video is fine of course but during editing it is very annoying when looking at playback from the timeline.
I suspected the NVidia 471.11 driver initially, but this is not the case as worked fine on PP 13.1.5 version
I have not swapped monitors as 13.1.5 proved it was not the monitor.
Any comments/assistance appreciated as trying to track this down will be a pain.

I've gone back and done more tests and only variable is Premiere Pro version.
Version 13.1.5 (PPro 2019) fine , Version 14.9 and 15.2 has the anomaly.
