Hiding high-poly objects, does this improve performance?


I’ve loaded in 20 pairs of shoes to a closet model. Now the model is hanging up a bit as I continue to model the closet. If I hide the shoes will that relieve poly load in the active model and allow me to model faster? If not, are there suggestions about optimizing so the model doesn’t hang up. Thanks.


It’s best to use Layers vs. the Hide command.

Create a new layer.
Assign the shoe components to the new layer.
Turn the layer visibility off.
