Hide Rest of Model for all scenes at once?

Is there anyway to edit settings on multiple scenes, all at once?
I’d like to toggle Hide Rest of Model on eighty saved scenes.

I have a large architectural model (37Megs) with about 80 saved scenes. It is also physically large as the geo-location comprises about 50 acres.

I’d like to create a high res video, but on interior shots, the foreground frequently gets clipped off because the model is so large in area.

I’ve attached a scene to illustrate the clipping that happens.

Choose the first scene in the series, hide the objects you want to hide, select all of the scenes in your sequence, click the Update button in the Scenes tab, untick all of the boxes except the one for Hidden Objects. Then click on Update.


BTW, I don’t carry Dapper Dan, I carry FOP.

That’s pretty great, thanks!
It turns out that most of my problem is that I am using an excessively wide angle for viewing small interior spaces. Something that Sketchup is inherently bad at, because the wide angle cuts walls within the angle of view.
Any work-arounds for that?

Not so much. You’re dealling with clipping. Effectively you’re putting the camera in a position where some of the geometry is “in” the camera. Most likely in your case hiding the stuff makes the most sense. Best would be to use tags for controlling visibility of the groups and components instead of using Hide. Maybe section planes would be a workable solution, too.

It would appear to be a geographical oddity.
