Light Adjust Doesn't Work Version 3.0.0

Photo AI increases the lighting on my RAW imports. Went to preferences and reduced setting to ZERO. No change as it still adjusted to lighting. Back to prefs and changed both settings to -25 each. Made do difference. Some weeks ago the update was so bad I reverted back to 2.3.2. Program told me there were 4 updates so I went with the new version. This is not a help. And it’s not a help that my file saves to a TIFF. I have to go outside of LR just to use this. EVERYTHING seems multiple steps backwards.

Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. Step 1
  2. Step 2
  3. Step 3

Is there not a way to delete my post?

This is still an accurate assessment. Lighting is adjusted no matter what you tell the program to do.
