Adobe needs to fix this issue immediately, to go back on Mojave is a pain, and no time for some people like me who need to deliver fast and with deadlines. So angry !

You can use a free program called Kext Beast best to use version 2.0.1 to install all the Mojave 10.14.1 AMD kexts from System/Library/Extensions copied from a Mac with 10.14.1 to repair the damage 10.14.2 redid!

Adobe decided to remove my post from the forum probably because I mentioned another program? But this works! You just use the program to put 10.14.1 AMD drivers that worked back into your 10.14.2 system so you dont need to roll back the entire system but just the drivers.

Thanx

Here a dropbox link to the 20 AMD driver from 10.14.1
Dont forget to disable SIP or install driver on the active systemdrive wont work. Or start up from external drive to be able to install might also work but I have not tested that.

We have to downgrade to High Sierra as AMD Fire PRO GPU on mac pro bugs after update 10.14.1(which was solved) since we tried updates 10.14.2 and 10.14.3, different Kext manipulations etc. Nothing worked... Shame.
I found without OpenCL it worked faster than with it on 2 GPU's crazy.
Now have build 10.13.6 and it is decent.

Why not revert to 10.14.1 so you can still run dark mode? I believe that's the only version of 10.14.x that didn't have the issue right?

See the official answer. We're working with Apple to get a fix for the AMD driver for affected cards.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Black Pixels with Liquify Tool.

Liquify Tool. The black pixel issue when using the liquify tool which first appeared last year is back. I've been living with it for a month now. Last year it appeared and then Apple and Adobe addressed it and it was corrected. But it has returned and is really frustrating. It is adding so much time to my workflow. I understand turning off the graphics processor is a workaround, but that disables other key tools that are huge time savers in my workflow. Scrubby zoom, flick to pan, rotate, etc... Please...... this is costing lots of people time and money. I understand Apple is involved in this as well but you are both huge companies and it's impossible to get an answer on this. Help us out! Thank you.

Leave the graphic processor on. Just alt-click when launching Liquify. This way the graphic processor is only disabled for Liquify, the rest of the workflow will not be affected.

Thank you! This is a much better workaround than disabling the processor altogether!

Or you could look at my posts and really fix it.
Disable SIP.
And use Kext Beast to put the AMD Extensions from 10.14.1 in your current system.
Reboot and done.
Like 5 minutes...

Mojave 10.14.4 is in test mode now. Hope it will fix this problem. Otherwise I hope Adobe will update Photoshop before.

I updated to 10.14.3 yesterday Feb 11, 2019 (hoping to fix other Photoshop bugs) and now the liquify bug has returned with PS version 20.0.2.

PS Version 20.0.3 is out and still the liquify tool is not working! What the F**** is wrong with you Adobe? Affinity Photo is becoming more and more an option. If you want to loose customers keep on!
