Description

Makes the selected nodes top-level nodes (removes any parents of the selected objects), enabling you to disassemble hierarchies among scene objects.

The transformation values of selected object(s) remain unchanged after the parent operation unless you use the -adjust option. Therefore, if there are any non-zero transform values above the selected node(s), you must use unparent -adjust to maintain the node's absolute world location and orientation after execution of the command.

The parent of the selected objects does not need to be selected to unparent objects. However, the converse is not true; the target parent must be selected when parenting selected objects.
