Warp and Liquify a MASKED object

Hi all.

Sorry, this probably gets asked a lot....

We're all used to Warping and Liquifying items in an image.

But...

If that pariticular object in image (let's say a Person) has been and is isolated via Layer Mask, then what is the best practice when it comes to Warp / Liquify distortions?

I ask because clearly, warping and liquifying do not distort any MASK 'in tandem' with the object. Indeed, the manipulated object pretty much instantly disappears OUTSIDE OF the limits of the Mask. That seems strange to me. I guess it is a hell of a lot to ask (the Mask might well be really complex and soft-edged) but surely in an ideal world, Masks and Masked objects should change TOGETHER 'in real time'?!

It's obviously impractical to keep discarding careful Masks every time I want to distort an item.

Thanks!

Andy

Is the link between the thumbnail and the layer mask visible? If they're linked and you apply warp, then the image plus the mask get warped.

 

If you'd like the image and the layer mask to get modified together when you use Liquify, then convert the layer into a Smart Object first.

I should add that the image plus the layer mask also can be modified together with warp if you make that layer a Smart Object first too.
