Premiere Shifts Clips Position During Transition

I am currently having an issue in which my clips' Position appears to shift after applying a transition -- they move while the transition is running, and then snap back to their original position when it completes.

 

It doesn't happen for every transition -- Cross Dissolve is an exception, for example, but all my third-party transitions and the more complex stock ones have this problem (Screen Recording, attached, shows it when using Non-Additive Dissolve -- it not only shifts the video, but actually mirrors it as well!). It just started for me yesterday. Any idea what could be causing this? It's seriously hampering my workflow.

 

I have attached a clip of the glitch in action. I am running Premiere Pro 15.4.7 on MacOS 10.15.7 on a Mid-2015 15" Macbook Pro, 2.8GHz Quad-Core i7, Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB.

Can you give us information about the footage that you're working with? If it was shot with a phone (which i'm assuming from what I see) or recorded off of the web it may have a variable frame rate and other quirks.

I would try downloading the free app Hand Brake and exporting your footage to a fixed frame rate and then try using it in Premiere.

Thank you for your response! I understand why you'd think it was shot on a phone given the vertical format of the edit, but the footage in this example is widescreen 4K footage at 50 FPS. The same issue was happening for me yesterday in the exact same way on multiple other types of footage and text -- even attempting to use a transition to bring in a text layer results in the exact same issue, where it is shifted down until the transition completes, and then it goes to its intended location. I have also tried changing the framerates of the sequences and that makes no difference.
