Hide all objects except selection, and prevent selecting other objects.
- [Aaron Ross] If you're working on a scene…with many objects and you just want to focus on one thing,…then you can either isolate the object,…which will hide everything else,…or you can lock the selection so…that you can't select anything else.…Let's look at isolate first.…So all you have to do is just select something.…In this case it's a group that includes…all the parts of that monitor.…And then at the bottom of the interface…is isolate selection.…And it looks like a cyan box with little corners on it.…
Click on that.…And now everything else is hidden in the scene.…Pretty cool.…And we can turn that back off again.…The keyboard shortcut for that is alt Q.…So I can select something, alt Q,…and the perspective view actually zooms automatically,…but the other views don't.…So I can use my keyboard shortcut that I made earlier,…control shift Z and now I've isolated just that sofa.…
And I've also zoomed in on it.…I can exit out of isolate selection.…And then we can play with locking.…So that's a similar concept.…Select an object or a group,…

Learn how to get around the 3ds Max interface and customize it to suit your preferences. Discover how to model different objects using splines, polygons, subdivision surfaces, and freeform sculpting. Then, learn to construct hierarchies, add cameras and lights, and animate with keyframes. Author Aaron F. Ross also takes an in-depth look at materials and texture mapping, as well as options for rendering engines such as Arnold and ART.
