Hi there,

Smart objects are great, but after upgrading to 2020 Photoshop, whenever I have a Smart Object with a 'Smart Filter' applied, and then I include that layer in another smart object, the Smart Object created has a bounding box of the entire canvas. This occurs regardless of the contents, but only when a layer within the new smart object has a smart filter applied.

There's a mask on your smart filter that looks like it is the full canvas size. Trash the mask and see if that changes the behavior?
