Brush Glitch in Photoshop 21.1 when using Smoothing + Build Up settings.

I've discovered a glitch in Photoshop 21.1 that affects brushes that have the "Build Up" setting checked in the Brush Settings panel.

You'll see in the attached screenshots and demo video that the glitch causes a large blob / dot to form at the start of brush strokes when the brush smoothing settings are on.

I've discovered that the issue even occurs in some brushes that have brush smoothing set to 0% however it is significantly worse when brush smoothing is set above 50%. 

The only fix I've been able to find is to uncheck "build up". 

I make and use a lot of brushes so unfortunately I now need to choose between using smoothing, or build up. You can't have both.


This issue will only be apparent when used with a pressure sensitive tablet. Mouse input will not  trigger the error as the error is pressure input related. 

I'm not looking for suggestions here but just wanted to make Adobe aware of this issue so that it can be fixed.

Mac OS Catalina 10.15.2
Photoshop 21.1
Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 - latest driver installed

YES!! The same exact thing happens to me on both my Mac laptop and iMac! It first began on my laptop. Then photoshop automatically updated on my iMac and now I cant use the smoothing option at all until they fix the glitch. And I use the smooth tool at all times. And yes, it glitches with all of the brushes I use.

Hi, is it also the case in 21.1.1?

If yes, please search or create a thread on the https://feedback.photoshop.com site, watched by Adobe staff. Make sure to provide as many relevant details as possible, like you did in this post.

Thank you Kindred for explaing this problem so succinctly. I'm guessing this is still not resolved? It is a rather annoying glitch.
