Is there any way to remove, apply or clear all the constraints for all the objects (or selected) in scene?

  • $\begingroup$ @FFeller The shortcut Ctrl+Alt+C is Clear Pose Constraints, not Clear Object Constraints... at least not in my Blender version. $\endgroup$ Commented May 31, 2022 at 11:21

  • $\begingroup$ @Nathan Well sure, I thought to clear constraints from objects you should be in Object Mode but when I'm trying it, Ctrl+Alt+C does absolutely nothing and when I'm looking in the keymap, I have no shortcut there for clearing object constraints. And I didn't change my keymap from the default settings... $\endgroup$ Commented May 31, 2022 at 17:36
  • $\begingroup$ @GordonBrikmann Good to know, just adding because in my version (basically default keymap, pre2.8 interface on initial startup) it works for object mode, but in pose mode, it will clear pose constraints. Which makes sense-- a lot of pre 2.8 keymapping makes more sense than post, but I do miss F2 renaming, which for some reason can't be keymapped.... $\endgroup$

You're a bit unspecific on what you want to achieve. Just removing/clearing the constraints would also remove the effect they had on the objects, while applying usually means you want to preserve the effect/transformation created by the constraints. If you want to apply and remove the constraints, do the following (skip 2. if you don't want to apply the transforms):

  1. Select the objects on which you want to apply and remove the constraints.

  2. Go to menu Object > Apply > Visual Transform, shortcut Ctrl+A.

  3. Now choose Object > Constraints > Clear Object Constraints.

apply transforms

clear constraints
