Short description of error
The displace modifier ignores the Subsurf modifier if the Subsurf's subdivision type is set to 'Simple' and the scale on the object is unapplied. I understand applying scale is often important for modifiers to work correctly, but what threw me off was the fact that normal 'Catmull-Clark' subdivision works fine but 'Simple' shows no effect at all.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Switch the 'Subsurf' modifier's subdivision type from 'Simple' (no effect) to 'Catmull-Clark' to see the effects of the Displace modifier.
