The liquify filter fails to load the first time you try and open it, and if you open manually the second time it opens but you get the previous mesh instead of a clean one.
The issue happens when you invoke Liquify from a script or from an action.

Script code to recreate the issue:

var idLqFy = charIDToTypeID( "LqFy" );
executeAction( idLqFy, undefined, DialogModes.ALL );

Or create a new action and add "Insert Menu Item..." "Filter>Liquify..."

Same happens to me. Newest Version 2014.1.0 crashed when using above code. In PS CC 14.2.1 it works perfectly!

This should be solved by the CC 2015.1 update that was released today: https://blogs.adobe.com/photoshop/201...

Why only in CC2015 ? Why couldn't be done in CC2014 v2.2 ??
Please! 
CC2015 also have other bugs and do I must choose the one that affect my team the less?

var idLqFy = charIDToTypeID( "LqFy" ); 
executeAction( idLqFy, undefined, DialogModes.ALL ); 

Neither can't be call using RunMenuItem because there isn't any EventID code for this.
If so, why even bother to have EventIDs if they are not updated and get people informed?
