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.

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.

Please update to macOS 10.14.4 which corrects this driver problem with AMD cards.

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.

10.14.4 liquify solved, lag on the brush too, hang on a second, but the old issue back:DDD! Brush tool using and it flies out after zoom in or zoom out select brush and brush it see how it flies randomly, so you know still not 100% fixed :D ... The roundabout is rulers switch off then it works. Crying loudly as it's on the top spec mac pro 2x D700.

I have been scared to update my system but there is a noticeable lag now..... if I update to 10.14.4, will the black pixels appear? I'm scared....can't handle the work it took to downgrade and save all my work.

Hi Loria,

Upgrading to 10.14.4 is fine! That said, Adobe has asked that 10.15 be avoided until some of the kinks are worked out, but it's not related to the black pixels.

Thanks!
