Photoshop: Liquify Tool - black pixels after edit (macOS Mojave 10.14.0 & 10.4.2)

Just updated my Mac to Mojave today.

Liquify is creating black pixels when used.

I have tried to optimize performance but I still get the same error.

I have a super fast machine, so is not a RAM error. Liquify was working normally before Mojave OS.

In the image below, I have slightly adjusted the smile of the subject.

Mac Os Mojave 10.14.4 public beta 2 is OK for liquify (Photoshop CC 2019 20.0.2 and graphic card on).... Yep, good job !
Hope it's going to be the same in final 10.14.4...

Thanks Olivier. I'll wait for final release as I'm over running beta OS on my only machine but it's reassuring to know that the 10.14.4 should fix it :)

i found a little tricky tip to avoid this bad thing:
try to use your liquify with gpu enabled as usual and hit ok, undo 1 step and open the liquify from top menu while press ALT key (this for disable gpu in liquify tool), load last mesh and you will not have the ugly black dots

Here... 
Just updated to the latest Mojave 10.14.3 and the Liquify tool creates black and blue greek-roman pixels all around! HELP!!!! S.O.S

I'm on PS since 7.0 so .... come on what the hell is going on? You new generation of coders and engineers just takes for granted the most memorable tool on PS as if if wasn't a big deal?

It seems that Mojave 10.4.4 corrects this problem. If so, I think I will NEVER update again the OSX :D

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Black artifacts on image after using the Liquify filter still appear in CC2019.

Hi, I found this article (https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-and-macosmojave.html#Blackartifactsonimageafterusingt...) but not mention about CC2019? I still have same Liquify bug on CC 2019, anyone can help??

If I Disable the Use Graphics Processor, Mac will popup me "Your system has run out of application memory". Adobe, please solve and update photoshop ASAP, it is really annoying. Increase my workload and Speed down my project progress....

I understand, but the solution is only that way, there is another way to install fresh Mojave as there is different drive formatting after upgrade it just bugs off GPU drivers. Good luck.

Hello, I suffered some months with this annoying issue. A few days ago I installed Mojave 10.14.4 Beta (18E194d) and the whole problem disappeared. At this moment everything is working well (iMac Retina 5K 27 inches, lately 2015). Hope in the Apple official release all still working ok. Greetings.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Black pixels with liquify tool in photoshop - still an issue.

I have been getting black pixels after applying the liquify filter in Photoshop (common problem with mojave update I read). I have updated photoshop to latest version (20.0.4) and updated mojave (10.14.3) and still get the same problem. The suggested workaround of deselecting the use of the Graphics Processor does fix this issue - but I would love to see the problem resolved properly. Thanks!

Apple released 10.14.4 yesterday. https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1994?locale=en_US

Try that out. The update fixed the issue for me with a late 2013 Mac Pro with AMD D700 GPUs.
