Blender 2.92.0

Part 2 level 2 of the tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZ5ungDgFNc

Already looking at this it seems I've messed up the collections of the sprinkles somehow? I see double of sprinkles in the Outliner, one set at the very bottom in no collection and one in a collection (they are all still linked together) - I don't know how I managed that. In the tutorial he only had the whole set of sprinkle objects in one collection - is this related to my render problem and if so how do I go on about making it look the same again without messing up the materials I have set up and such?

Main issue is I need help hiding the source objects of the sprinkles so they don't end up in the final render - I do recall there was some setting or hotkeys on how to change the visibility of the objects for the viewport and renders respectively but I can't find how to easily toggle it.

Thank you in advance!

If you uncheck the checkbox next to your sprinkles collection circled in red, it will hide the objects in the collection, while still showing the particles on the donut.

  • $\begingroup$ I figured out a solution, I right clicked the sprinkle objects inside the collection and chose "Unlink" (not the sphere) then moved the sprinkle objects that were outside the collection into it! I don't know what Unlink means or how I got here in the first place, I would actually appreciate if anyone can explain to me what I did wrong since I want to understand Blender more :) thanks for your help $\endgroup$
