Is there a way to stop blender from rendering hidden objects (that do not show in the rendered view)?

    $\begingroup$ Hello :). I'm sure you're familiar with the Enable/Disable in Render switch (camera icon). So are you looking for a script that will also disable all hidden object from render? $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Jul 5 at 20:08

In the outliner you can toggle visibility and renderability of objects.

Click on the funnel icon on the top right and enable different filters.

The eye icon determines visibility in the 3d viewport.

The monitor icon disables the object in all viewports.

The camera icon determines if the object is rendered or not.

  • $\begingroup$ Just to add - the checkmark disables collections from both viewport + render at once. $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Jul 5 at 22:02
  • $\begingroup$ And the arrow makes the object selectable or not $\endgroup$ – no-can-do Jul 5 at 22:19
