When trying to scale an extruded and assigned faces vert group back to zero on the Z-axis after applying a displacement modifier, it either seems to work correctly, or the entire mesh goes flat, as if I'd never applied the modifier in the first place. I know individual origins is supposed to be selected, but sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Any help would be deeply appreciated. My workflow:
- Add plane –>
- apply two array modifiers with one offset along Y-axis –>
- UV unwrap –>
RMBfaces to extrude and hold geometry –>
- assign these to a vert group for displacing –>
- apply displacement modifier and adjust as needed –>
- tab into edit mode and select only that faces vert group from individual origins
Am I missing something here?
The first image shows the error. I've added and applied the displacement mod; selected only the faces vert group; then scaled that group to 0 along Z.
The below image shows what's supposed to happen, but often I can only get this to work after switching back and forth between the indiv. origins and 3D cursor tabs, and toggling between the faces/vertices tabs.
