How to show only that part of the scene that can be seen from the camera and hide everything that does not fall into its field of vision.

I accidentally found this hotkey before, but I can not find it now.

  • $\begingroup$ H hides an object in the 3D view, but what you're talking about only exists as an add-on. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Could you be more specific about what you're trying to achieve? You're question is too brief, do you want to hide the objects so their affect doesn't appear in the render (reflections..etc)? Do you want to hide them in the viewport? $\endgroup$

You can also go to the camera setting, and click Viewport Display, and set the Passepartout to 1.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks, this is exactly what I was looking for. Feels better than having to do Alt + B $\endgroup$

Finally I found a solution. The hotkey is: Alt+B (Clipping Border)

  • Switch to camera view
  • Press Alt+B
  • Select camera view area by cross selection tool
  • Switch to 3d window
  • Voila!
