Organize the objects in our scene into hierarchies and groups, and also into layers for easily selecting objects, keeping a viewport uncluttered, and improving playback speed.

This video shows how to create hierarchies and groups, and how to create layers using the Layer Manager. It also shows how to add materials in the Material Manager to the layers of the objects to which they’re applied. In the Layer Manager, you can perform tasks to all objects in a layer at once: solo them, set their visibility in the viewport or Object Manager, set their renderability, lock them so they can’t be selected and manipulated, and disable their animation, generators, deformers, expressions, and Xref objects.
