Is there a way to assign a displacer deformer only to a polygon selection, instead of a whole object?

Maybe a silly question but I cannot figure it out.

yes, you can make a Selection tag of the face polys you want to use then add a Restriction tag to the Displacer deformer and drag the selection tag into that.

you could also use displacement in a material by stacking the materials and limiting the material using displacement with a selection tag. This would render slower if you use Sub-poly displacement but you get to use sub-poly displacement, so much more detailed displacement and you don't see the displacement until render.

oh yes, that sounds pretty straight forward.

Two great tips! thanks, I appreciate the help!
