I'm trying to hide a parent but i want to keep the child visible, how can i do this? I can't seem to select the parent without selecting the child.

You can click on object, type f in outliner, click on parent and do a cntrl-H and then select children and do a show selected?

you'd have to hide the shape node of the parent to keep the child from getting hidden also. Select the parent and press down arrow to pickwalk down to its shape, and hide. The parent should hide but the child should stay visible. Problem is you cannot keyframe the shape visibility.

hhm basically what im trying to do is replace some proxy objects with the textured higher rez objects. I'll give the pickwalk a try

The parent constraint can be useful for this. Parent constraint the hi-res to the proxy and you'll be set, you can hide each individually or make their visibility dependant on each other.
