Mask Modifier

The Mask modifier allows vertices of an object to be hidden dynamically based on vertex groups.

Options

Mode

The Mask Modifier can hide parts of a mesh based on two different modes, selectable from this select menu.

Vertex Group

Hides all vertices not included in the chosen vertex group.

Armature (Скелет)

When in Pose Mode, vertices belonging to the vertex group associated with the active bone (same names) will be visible. Vertices not in that group will be hidden.

Инвертировать

Normally, vertices belonging to the selected vertex group (or group associated with the active pose bone) will be shown. The Invert toggle allows you to reverse this behavior, instead only showing vertices which do not belong to the vertex group.

Threshold

Hides vertices with weights less than or equal to this value.
