liquify problems

I noticed that liquify is not very responsive (like with the release of cs5) this time it is impossible to choose a bush size smaller than 151 next step is 300 etc.

 

Also the image looks low res in liquify window ( i know this is not my mac pro machine, because everything works normal and fast in CS5.5)

 

Also the target is way to thick and large and makes it difficult to see the image when applying local liquifying tool.

 

Same goes for target when using path tool...it is possible to make the targets thinner/smaller or more opaque?

    you probably have a video card driver that needs a driver update or your card is upsupported.

     

    see this thread:

    if you launch liquify holding down option you will launch in CPU mode - which is the same as CS5. you wont have a pixelated preview.

    they dont really talk much about many people having to use CPU mode.

    You can Alt/Opt right click and drag to get infinitely variable brush size from 1 pix to something like 3000 pixels.

    You can also zoom in to the area you want to edit for finer control.

     

    I am not clear on what your point is re the Path tool.

    Please verify your video card driver. Even at 3 months, your driver can be outdated.

     

    If that does not help can you cut and paste your system information here?

    The system info can be located in Photoshop at Help>System Info.

    Liquify was heavily reworked for CS6. So most parts of it are different from CS5.5. A great deal of GPU acceleration was added.

     

    If your Liquify preview has a one pixel black border then you are in CPU mode, not the accelerated GPU mode. If Liquify is starting in CPU mode you can press the control key immediately after starting it and it will show and alert telling you why it could not run in the accelerated GPU mode on your Mac.

    Is there any chance you have the Show Backdrop checked?

    I'm glad I could help.

     

    The thick cursor only occurs on certain video cards. Unfortunately we did not find it in time to get it fixed for CS6.
