- One way to organize your scenes is to use groups,…and this allows us to segment our scene…so that we can hide and show various parts…of the scene or make it so that we can't…select certain parts of the scene.…So we have this particular scene here…and we have a background object…and maybe we don't ever want to touch that bench…and so we want to make sure that it's not selectable.…So when we're selecting things in the scene…we don't want to accidentally hit that.…
So we can create groups to make that easier.…So I'm gonna go over here in the resources panel…to the groups tab,…and let's go ahead and select that bench…and then we'll create a group for it.…Now if we want we can name this group…so all I have to do is double click on it…and we can call it, say, "BG"…and it could be the bench or it could be…a number of different objects in the scene.…And once we have it in a group we have three options here.…We can show it, so it's a great way to show…and hide things.…
We can turn off pick so that way…when I select things I don't…
