Animation set "Groups"
Kind of like folders, in the animation set. They hold models to easily sort things.
I saw that Zachariah Scott used them, what are they? And how to you use them?

In the upper corners of the Animation Set Editor window you'll see 2 buttons, one is a + the other looks like a gear. Click the one that looks like a gear.

If "Show Scene Hierarchy" is unchecked, click it to turn on the check mark.

Now in the animation set editor, Hold down the CTL key and click on the objects you want to group together, Once selected right click on one of the highlited items and select "Group Selected Dags" When they are grouped, you can right click on the Group heading and select Rename Dag and call it whatever you want.

If you turn off the Show Hierarchy in the setting the groups will expand until you turn it back on again.

There are advantages and disadvantages to grouping items. But you can discover those on your own... lol One of the disadvantages is if you have Light Kits in the scene, you have to turn off the hierarchy in order to access the light controls....
