I've been noticing some persistent issues with viewing/moving/modifying layer masks since CC14 and possibly before. This is across multiple machines and MacOS versions and is only partially resolvable by turning off Graphics Processing.

I've created a short video which illustrates the issue:

Would love if someone out there could try and reproduce this issue...

Step to take:

- create a new RGB image

- add a layer with a layer mask

- paint/add color to the mask

- opt/alt click the mask to view

- cmd/ctrl - L(levels) and try to make an adjustment

Does it behave normally or is there a huge lag?

This continues to be an issue.

Any adjustment/modification to a layer mask while viewing it is extremely laggy.
