Quick key to duplicate a piece of geometry and take it out of its group
on Jul 7, 2006 at 2:09:16 pm

I routinely duplicate pieces of footage from other groups in my scene and use the "f" key in the outliner to twirl down the group so I can get to the duplicated object quickly. I was wondering if there was any sort of quick key to take it out of the group for you and put it out in the open so you can quickly group it with your new object groups, if that makes any sense. I'd like to skip the process of going to the outliner, doing the f hotkey, dragging the new duplicated object out of the group step.

Thanks!

Hi, John.

I think the 'Group under [World]' option in the Duplicate tool should do what you want. It sounds like you've got 'Group under [Parent]' set to be the default.
