Another method is to use "Transform Again" which becomes available immediately after using the Transform tool. Use the Transform tool to warp, distort or whatever, once you are happy commit to the changes by hitting enter key. Now you can straight away click on a saved channel or a current mask, and use Edit>Transform>Again and it will apply the last Transformation you performed.

Re: warp a layer with it's mask??

All of you are ace... Bill, i'm glad i wasn't going mad!

Macburg, i think you have the simplest option, and quick esp. with the shift+CMD+T shortcut, but i can't seem to get it working...

Maybe i'm asking too much now, but i've realised why i'm struggling with this, I'm taking a selection from my masked layer- and want to warp that, in this case the selection is only a box - I'm forcing something to fit, i don't want to affect the top part of my mask/composition... i don't really want to make a new layer, and blend back in there after...

Smart objects are good for some things, but i find they slow workflow if not really really required.
