The Scene Tree displays Model Sets/models and their hierarchies along with any cameras that exist in a scene. Animations are also represented in the scene tree in versions of the software that include the animation add-on.

Collapse Scene Tree
Collapsing the scene tree hierarchy can be very useful if your model has a lot of parts. You can collapse/expand single groups or models by clicking the -/+. You can also right-click the section you would like to collapse and select “Collapse.” The full hierarchy can be collapsed when you select “Collapse All.

Hide/show
Models and parts can be hidden and shown using the  icon next to the name. The  icon displayed next to animations can be used to disable and re- enable animations that are applied.Collapsing the scene tree hierarchy can be very useful if your model has a lot of parts. This can be achieved

Lock
If there is a Image Added icon next to a model or part, the geometry is present in the scene, but can not be moved/edited. Models and parts can be locked/unlocked either by right-clicking the section you would like to collapse and select “Collapse.” The full hierarchy can be collapsed when you select “Collapse All.”part/model and selecting lock/unlock or in the properties tab just below the Scene Tree, where the icon can be clicked to lock/unlock.

Re-order
Models and parts can be re-ordered in the Scene Tree via drag-and-drop. The re-ordering indicators have been improved in KeyShot 7.2 making it much easier to move models or parts to your desired location. T

Rename
Models and parts can be renamed in the properties tab just below the Scene Tree. The Properties section always show the details for the seleced part/model, including the name.

Info

Note: It is best practice to control the naming and ordering in CAD but if you decide to do it in KeyShot it is recommended to do so before assigning textures or labels as it may cause mapping to shift.
Changing the scene hierarchy will also break Live Linking and Update Geometry.
