Weird "broken glass" effect in the The Witcher 3, 5700XT

Discussion created by scdf on Jan 18, 2020

Two broken visual effects in The Witcher 3.
Weird broken glass like effects where their shouldn't be any. Two examples, detailed below.

 

Broken Boat Effect:
In The Last Wish quest, Yennerfer casting a spell on the boat is broken, with a weird broken mirror effect (look to the left of Geralt in my video) and no pulse effect (watch the water near the boat in the correct video).

Broken Wavey Effect:
When talking to Yennifer about finding a crystal, a "flash back" has weird broken glass effects instead of the consistent blur / wave you'd expect. It is also missing blur effects that it should have.

Graphics settings etc:
Everything on highest, with the exception of: No Hairworks, SSAO not HBAO, Shadow Quality and Foliage Visibility Range onHigh instead of Ultra. 3440x1440, also seen in not ultrawide, vsync off.

 

I've also reported these as bugs, but thought I'd also post them here to see if any one else has seen stuff like this.
