Photoshop: Smart Objects: Liquify and Vanishing Point as Smart Filters

It would be nice to see Liquify and Vanishing point working on Smart Objects.

Vanishing point is really tricky because Photoshop currently doesn't record brush strokes.

Liquify may be a possibility through saving the mesh, but meshes tend to be really huge and can take a long time to save/load/apply.

If you look in the Scripting>Sample Scripts>JavaScript folder, you will find a file called "EnableAllPluginsForSmartFilters.jsx"

Drag that file on Photoshop and you can enable all filters as Smart Objects. That said, if you try to edit the filter, the parameters, like paint strokes, won't be remembered and applied.

Liquify was improved to be a fully functional Smart Filter in version 13.1 for Photoshop C6 (Creative Cloud)

Thanks Jeffrey - I'll give that a try (but to be honest, I'm not terribly interested in either of these filters ... I'm just interested in having a really full-functional smart object and there are some things - like individual masks on smart filters that I do care about A LOT!).

Jeffrey - thanks for the EnableAllPluginsForSmartFilters script - not for the Liquify and Vanishing Point, but for the Lens Blur! And since Lens Blur can use its own mask, I can now apply filters to the whole object (say Shadows/Highlights & a vignette using Lens Corrections) and selectively apply Lens Blur to have a nice blurred background.

This would be a nice tip to share around!

Sure. Glad you like that. When we added that script ("EnableAllPluginsForSmartFilters.jsx") the idea for the script was to enable 3rd party plug-ins that didn't have flag in the code to run as a Smart Filter, but would otherwise work as a Smart Filter.
