Can I apply something like a mask to apply proportional editing to only some connected vertices in blender 2.8? For example I only want to move the verts on the right side of this leg in proportional editing in the following image: Given this, is it possible to exclude the verts on the left(the front of the model) leg from this edit to prevent distorting the verts I have just positioned? I though you could apply masks in blender some how, but I can't find anything on masks for proportional edits in 2.8.
Select the vertices/edges/faces you don't want to be affected by proportional editing and hit H to hide them, when you're done with the proportional edit, unhide with Alt + H .
You have now done a proportional editing that did not affect the hidden vertices/edges/faces.
