    What kind of adjustments? Is it a filled layer? Perhaps you had better show us an example.

    New Radial Gradient mask in a small location with local color balance adjustments affects the colors on the whole picture.

    Are you 100% sure that the radial gradient mask is including only the center of the mask rather than being inverted and including everything outside the center (which then looks like the whole photo)?

    I cannot reproduce your problem (it works fine for me) on Windows 11, Capture One version 16.3.4.  The only two possible explanations I can think of are:

    1. Your mask is inverted so it's allowing the operation to affect everything except the center of your radial gradient
    2. The layer with the mask on it isn't selected when you do color balance adjustments and thus those adjustments are happening on the base layer.

    Here is the example. First picture is the new image without any editing.

    Now add Radial gradient mask, adjust some color balance. You can see that the color tone of all the lights have changed. Disabling the layer will revert it.

    Select the layer and press M to show/hide the layer mask.

    When I show the layer mask, the incorrect color tint of the lights disappears, but appears again on the exported image.

    Have you tried turning off hardware acceleration? macOS or windows? Update graphics drivers for Windows? Rebuild graphics acceleration engine?

    Windows. I can reproduce it on two different machines. I'll create a support ticket.
