I'm having a really weird issue with Liquify. Two of my students had the same issue today using the tool.
Liquify is applied to a smart object as a smart filter, after clicking OK the smart object disappears - there is no image in the thumbnail as well. If I turn off the visibility for the smart filter, the image returns. If I re-enter liquify via the smart filter the smart object is there with the filter applied.
I had one of the students send me their file and the same issue appears on my computer (theirs MAC, mine PC)
I did manage to get the liquified smart object to appear temporarily by copying the layer, deleting the smart filter on the copied layer and then copying the smart filter from the original layer to the copy. However, once I re-enter liquify on the copied layer and exit, the smart object's visibility is gone again.
I've looked at everything and I am stumped. Any thoughts?
