Okay, I'll admit it. I'm stupid. I must be. I've got a model that consists of six or seven parts. I need to render each of them out as a single hi-res page. Instead of opening the object in Layout and turning everything off except the one object I need rendered - and doing that half a dozen times - I thought that I'd be able to do it this way:

Open the object
Turn on Auto Key
Open Scene Editor
Turn off visibility of objects I don't need
Click the Create Key button
Move to next frame
Repeat most of the above until all the objects are singled out
Render scene

What happens is whatever the last setup I have shows up from the first frame to the last.

I'm losing my mind! How do I pull this off?

Thanks,

Ron

Turning off the visibility in Scene Editor is a global change. Try putting an envelope on the object visibility in the Object Properties window instead. Or you could just move your objects you don't want to render out of frame.

Dang! I knew that! Unfortunately, since nothing was moving, I shelved all thoughts about envelopes.

Thanks again, Nick!

Great reel, by the way.
