Exporting double sided polygons

I have objects which I can see through when I'm inside of it. These have onesided polys.
The materials are doublesided but I can't see them in preview mode in Poser.

I know it's not exactly Balancers task but maybe it can do it? ...making onesided to double sided without doubling the faces.

I know a way around this if I duplicate the object and reverse normals, but then I'll get twice as much polycount.

Do you have any idea about that?

Thanks

Balancer can only display objects as polys with
one-sided materials. The faces can be rendered
from both sides. You need to turn on "View/Back Faces"
and "View/Colored Backed Faces" to easily distinguish
between front/back faces. But it is still one-side
material rendering.

Also Balancer does not modify the material (.mtl) files.
So if your materials are double-sided they will stay
double-sided.

In any case, rendering double-sided material correctly
depends only on the specific application that you use
to make final rendering of your models. So I cannot see
how we can improve Balancer to help you with double-sided
materials. Puzzled

Try to ask people at the Poser forums.

Thank you for your info.
I'm really glad my new Balancer!
