Animating properties of visible/invisible in viewport/render for collections.
Closed, InvalidPublic


System Information
Operating system: Windwos 10
Graphics card: RTX 2070SU

Blender Version
Broken: 2.8+
Worked: I think never before

Short description of error
Trying to animate visibility of collections. "I" button gives information: ""hide_render" property cannot be animated".

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Move some objects into the collection > try to add keyframe for visibility of the collection.
For example - i have rigid body simulation of 300 objects - in some point I want to make them invisible in render, and enable 300 cloned objects without modifiers/rigid body sim. At this moment I must animate visibility for every object (sum 600).

I'm not sure is that bug, or it's something complicated to do in code, but I think it can really help in VFX pipeline.

This is not bug. Not sure if this is complicated to implement, or it's just about removing RNA_def_property_clear_flag(prop, PROP_ANIMATABLE); from collection RNA (doesn't seem to work just like that). I would imagine this being useful, but I am not sure about all implications of this change.
