My Entire Scene is Now Invisible

It's time to play everyone's least favorite game: "Help, I pressed the wrong button and screwed something up!"

This time around: every previously-existing object in my scene is no longer visible in my viewport. All new objects I create are visible, but every old object isn't.

- Everything is checked/enabled in my VIewport --> Filter list
- All my layers are enabled/Visible
- In my object manager, in the "eye" menu, everything is enabled
- When I copy & paste the scene contents into an empty scene, they are still invisible.

Thoughts?

I have back-ups that I'll work off of, no it's not an emergency - but this one's definitely puzzling.

May be you deleted all polygons by mistake when all was visible and selected in polygons mode? Check points - they should stay if it's so. Just a guess..

It was happening to everything - cameras, lights, generator objects...

Quote: Visible in editor?


Stoplights are all neutral or green.

Here's a stripped down scene:https://www.dropbox.com/s/6iwd4raaj...bjects.c4d?dl=0

The more I play with it, the more I think the scene file was just corrupt/malfunctioning rather than a bad button press. By rearranging generaters in my object manager (randomly mind you), objects are starting to work again. Doesn't appear to be related to a priority issue either, just moving things around, and one by one a few things start to function.

Forgive my stupidity... but I've always used the Magic Solo plugin. Enlighten me.

No problem)

the C4D native "solo" mode makes no visible changes in the OM so it is confusing for those of us that have used other solo plugins (which would change the stoplights so it is intuitive what is going on)

try going under Tools>Modes> and seeing where the Solo choices are set

It might also be possible that a layer is solo mode.

Sorry for the delay - but thank you for this! I don't have those items docked in my panel ( and I've never used them in the past) so I was rather confused.
