I'm trying to animate a collection in 2.8 so that it hides at a certain point in the viewport and the render but when I hover over either icon it says that "hide_viewport/render cannot be animated." Do I have to enable something in user settings?enter image description here

You can animate the "Show in Render" and "Show in Viewports" flags here: enter image description here

For entire collection, you can link the Animation Data from one object to the others. Note that this will override other keyframes set on destination objects.

    $\begingroup$ That's for a single object. What about a collection? $\endgroup$
