I have been searching everywhere for this issue and I've had no luck. I'm in the apparel printing business and recently I was assigned a project to create mockup templates that our merchandisers can use to place different artworks/designs on our garments for our online e-comm marketplaces.
I thought to set up a smart object layer and apply a distort >> displace smart filter to follow the folds of the garments and make the image look more realistic. That way, all the merchandisers would have to do is swap out the art.
My plan was working and it's the perfect solution to making quick product images, but my smart objects aren't always rendering properly. Sometimes I'll make a file and they're working perfectly normally, then I'll come back in a few weeks and open the same file again and this weird artifacting appears on the images. Sometimes the files work great for me, but the issue appears when the merchandisers try to use the files. I suspect it has something to do with the smart objects or the smart filter.
I cannot figure this one out, and I feel like I've exhausted Google with my searches. Please, has ANYONE also been experiencing this issue (screenshot attached)? Have you found any solutions? Is there a way we can sleuth this together? Here are my specs:
