Motion blur way too strong- new issue in 4.26

We updated our project to 4.26, and I immediately noticed our motion blur looked pretty bad. This is for cinematic rendering, so our motion blur is always set to 24fps/0.5, but now the amount of blur is way overcranked, and it seems like the background interferes with the velocity pass and smears across the edges of the foreground. I’ve opened new projects and had the same behavior. Anyone experience this or have any insights as to what might cause it?
