View Full Version : Howto Select All Visible Polygon Objects?

How do I select all the visible polygon objects in my Maya scene?

It appears impossible to send along a -visible flag to the SelectAllPolygonGeometry command, so Im clueless.

Thanks though that still selects all objects that are hidden in the layers. They are not hidden as in ctrl-h-hidden, they are hidden as in they are in a layer with its visibiliy turned off. Perhaps I didnt get that across.
