# How can I restrict the rendering of a parented object without removing the parent-child relationship?

For Example: I have a cube and a sphere in my scene. The cube and the sphere have a parent-child relationship, such that the cube is a child of the sphere; as illustrated:

The Outliner only shows the properties of the sphere. How can I restrict the cube from the render without removing the parent-child relationship?

• @Nazgûl My question is, how to restrict the render of cube without removing Parent-Child relationship? Infact, with restrict I mean It doesn't appear in the render. It has nothing to do with animation. – Shehroz Khan Sep 24 '18 at 16:34

The Outliner is designed to be able to display a 'heirarchy' of information, that is, data that belongs to other data, including parent/child relationships.

To expand the Outliner heirarchy press the '+' (which changes to a '-' when clicked) next to the parent object:

You now have access to the selection, render and viewport visibility properties of the child object.

You can also press Numpad + or Numpad - to expand or collapse levels of the Outliner (while the cursor is in the Outliner) for multiple objects.

• Worth noting the somewhat unfortunate shortcut is Ctrl + H and to unrestrict is Ctrl + Alt + H – iKlsR Sep 24 '18 at 16:46
