The Liquify tool has been around since around the year 2000 hasn't it? So, 17 years later, we're still having it open in a separate window altogether, as if it's still a separate piece of software (ie. Kai's Power Tools). Isn't it about time it was fully integrated into the layer functionality, so we can actually see items in other layers we're liquifying to, without first having to point to the file....then point to the layer...then point to either foreground or background....then point to the opacity. What a big time consuming yawn. Can we not by now have it as a regular tool as with smudge/sharpen, dodge/burn? It would be so useful.

Also...shouldn't we by now be able to warp different layers together instead of just being limited to warping just the one?

Also...shouldn't we by now be able to access the layers during transform, warping and liquify functions instead of having the process lock everything else up? For example, to be able to alter layer opacity during such functions would be very useful.

I hope someone at Adobe is listening. Machines have become a lot more powerful since these functions were introduced, some of them over 20 years ago ...and more flexibility is required. If not, other software companies such as the Foundry will catch you with your pants down with a better painting and photo manipulation program. They're working on it by the way.
