Limiting faces affected by solidify

Post by Jarmade » Mon Jan 28, 2013 7:50 pm

Not sure if this is a bug or expected behaviour but I am using the solidify modifier with zero thickness and "Fill rim" checked off, so I can make the mesh appear "double sided" for a game.

I set the faces that I want to be double sided into their own vertex group and then selected the vertex group on the solidify modifier. It doesn't seem to do anything, I have "Backface culling" turned on and I was expecting the faces that weren't in the vertex group to be invisible, but the solidify modifier is still affecting them.

I noticed if I set some thickness on the modifier then it will only thicken the faces in the vertex group, but the other faces will still be there but just not thickened
