I post gameplay videos on YouTube, and I've noticed that when I add text to the video, it makes the screen a tad brighter while the text is on screen. It's not a disaster, but it's definitely a little irritating. I've added a short video for an example.
As far as I can tell, it doesn't change the video brightness within Premiere- just Windows Media Player and YouTube, so I suspect it has to do with my export settings.
Thank you so much. It worked perfectly. Thank you again!!
YES! Thank you!! I have been dealing with this issue for over a year and this is the ONLY solution that worked for me!
YES! This fixed the issue for me — thank you for sharing this! Awful problem. Might not be too bad for others, but for me, the contrast on the video looked like absolute garbage.
I noticed this artifact when exporting for the first time and I believe I found a fix.
Go to File -> Project Settings -> General
Then at the top you see a panel for "Video Playback and Rendering"
Make sure you choose "GPU Acceleration" for final exporting.
I've had issues in premiere rendering some effects with "GPU acceleration" and so sometimes toggle back and forth between "GPU acceleration" and "Software only" rendering. I forgot to toggle back to "GPU acceleration" before exporting and noticed this strange brightening (its sort of like a desaturation, actually) with not only text overlay, but when some other elements were overlapped as well, such as nests overlapping other unseen footage (bad practice, I know, but easy way to use audio from a clip without delinking, etc).
Discovered this strange bug today. The solution André0D45 posted worked for me, so I went looking for something related that might make it easier. I believe I may have found it:
After I did this, none of my clips with text overlays changed brightness, and I didn't have to apply Lumetri Color with Basic Correction unchecked to individual clips.
I had followed the instructions of André0D45, and that worked for individual clips, but this solution worked for the whole video. Thank you! I wish there was a better way to upvote solutions like you can on Stack Exchange. Greatly appreciated!

You inspired me to experiment. I'm not a moderator, but I found that I had the option to select the WesleyWasTaken solution as the correct answer.
Oh nice! Hopefully this fix works for everybody else too. Thanks!
