I select the object and click hide selection, and it works. Put when I hit play on the animation it re-appears. Why? This hasn't happend to me before. The problem is that I'm using som geometry as a container for some fluids and I want to render the container seperatly.

Its likely that you have keyframes on "Visibility" parameter. If you hit the S key to set keyframes it will keyframe visibility. Hiding/showing selection basically turns that on/off.

You might also want to look into using render layers to set this process up.

Thanks a bunch Mike, that explains it all. Darn keyframes, can't be trusted.
