Any type of application / media player that I fullscreen appears as black, meaning the entire monitor transitions in ~ .4 seconds to just displays black, happens to VSCode, firefox, chrome, brave, media players in said browsers, Konsole & others. Fullscreening games like minecraft doesn’t blackout the screen.

Turning off desktop effects alt + shift + 12 gets rid of it so it is some form of kde animation
