Photoshop: Puppet Warp bug

Puppet Warp. I like this feature and use it frequently how ever there is an annoying bug that when every you use it on a clipped out object on a layer it breaks apart the edges after your adjustments are applied. It completely cuts off parts of the object, hard and jagged sections around the edges. The annoying workaround is to duplicate your layer first so that you can grab and reposition the pieces it deleted. Don't believe it is my machine as the same problem was in cs6.

What OS/version are you running on?

Do you have all the product updates installed? http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/201...

Yes I am updated to all current versions of iOS and photoshop. This issue has been there since the introduction of puppet and does it on all our machines. I have attached three reference samples of what is happening. A. is the original. B. as soon as you click to add your first node it clips the entire parameter loosing the feathered edge, in addition completely clipping protruding details which I have circled. C. after the puppet warp has been applied the edge distraction remains.

What specific OS version are you using?
iOS is what runs on phones and tablets, and cannot run Photoshop.

And which specific version of Photoshop are you using?
(many people say "latest" when they are not running anything close to the latest)

Typo, my bad (OS) And sorry I'm not a novice, I am a professional ad photographer and creative retoucher and have been using PhotoShop since 1.0. I'm on Creative Could and my photoshop updates every time a new update comes out. And yes I am on the most recent version of OS X Yosemite. Regardless I think most people posting to this forum are aware you can't use Photoshop on an iPhone. If you read my previous post I clearly say, the issue existed from the very first introduction of Puppet Warp, which I believe was CS5. This seem to clearly be a Photoshop issue and again as I previously mentioned all versions since CS5 on numerous machines are experience the same issue. Curious, have you experienced this issue?

Can you post your affected file with the Puppet Warp applied as a smart object?

Not necessary, I have already posted the sample file in my previous post and a smart object is not going to help you as the file I post was large enough to see the effect.

You posted a flat image. I need the settings in order for the engineers to debug.

Please explain how that will help, The issue happens wether it is a smart object or just a normal layer, There are no specific setting in puppet warp to set, just click and bend but I'm sure you know that. I'm also curious to know if you can recreate the issue on your end.. If a call is easier I can provide my contact info.

I had this issue as well. For me, adding 10 px to the mesh in the Expansion box worked. Some experimentation is required as every image may cut more or less off. I also added more points in the Density dropdown.

Here's a forum link that explains some workarounds such as the expanding the mesh in the Expansion box.

Same here, It happens to me all the time when I puppet warp an object that has a transparent background. See image attached. It cuts off quite a bit of the image and makes a jaggy edge. I usually have to check carefully after I warp to clone out the jaggy edges. The edges should be smooth like the rest of the edges.  Photoshop 2015.5.1. The tan pants had a rounded edge before the warp.
