View Full Version : How do I hide an object from the camera but not from lights

I need a shadow casting object the camera doesn't see. But I can't figure it out nor find this in the tutorials.

Can someone point me the right way?

Hi Dracorat,

Select your object while under the item tab, pending your UI setup...left hand side you should be able to see " SET VISIBILITY" under that - Tick the " UNSEEN by CAMERA ".

Should give you what you are looking for.

I must be missing it.

Attached is my UI. (It's the default - I haven't changed / moved anything)

Hit P for Object Properties.
Click on the Render Tab.
Select Unseen by camera.
