So, I've ripped a particular Blu-ray using MakeMKV. When I play the disc itself in PowerDVD, it looks fine.
But when I have ripped it using MKV, it adds contrast, and makes the quality go down slightly. If you'd like to see what I mean, reply asking.
I've never experienced this issue as far as I know. I have my entire Blu-ray collection compiled on my hardrive, and this is the first time it's happened.
Could it be due to the recent update?

MakeMKV doesn't change the content in any way.
The only thing MakeMKV does - it remuxes/changes the video clips from the disk into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way(no video and audio reconversion).
Maybe you're playing both at the same time to compare and one player uses the overlay while any other one doesn't.
I've tried playing the MKV in both programs. Still the same outcome.
It sounds like a levels issue. It must be a playback problem.
To save a lot of typing, something like this:
Maybe pictures can help him to understand? Open one and take a picture. Then open the other in the same player and go to the same frame and take a picture. Set up a Windows Slide Show so he can go back and forth between the two pictures. My guess is there won't be a speck of difference between the two pictures.
To mention also, you can also notice more of a gradient on the MKV file on the leggings. Could be just because the video is darker.
It's just a playback configuration issue. PC vs. TV levels and Rec 601 vs. 709.
Your VLC is probably set to output full range (PC levels) and Rec709 (ie it's "mapping" standard range Y16-235, UV16-240 to RGB 0-255). That's the default behaviour for VLC if it's a fairly recent version (within the last few years)
PowerDVD is likely using Rec601 and outputting limited range (or converting YUV to RGB for display with full range matrix)
I say this because if you take your VLC screenshot and "undo" it with
You get basically the same thing . Besides, makemkv can't change anything
