    Question CONSOLE COMMAND: How to hide unit selection rings in private lobby game

    Hey console masters,

    I am looking for a command to get rid of the unit selction rings.
    I still want to have the unit selected, but just stop showing the rings.
    I'd like to create a video and in my particular case I need it to be free from all kinds overlays (HUD, unit rings etc.).
    I need this command to work in a private lobby game, where I can set up my scene.

    Here's a picture of what I mean:

    Hope to find help here :I Cheers!

    Dear Dota 2 Team,

    I am a passionate filmmaker and huge fan of Dota 2! Currently I try to combine these two passions by starting a series of short videos called 'The Beauty of Dota' highlighting many of the unseen details the game incorpartes. Here is an idea of it:

    I use my own config file with a set of commands, like to enable free camera, disable the HUD etc., which all help to create pretty recordings free from overlays. For my next video I would really love to feature all the shops on the map in a close-up view using my free camera style.

    I figured the shop-characters have lovely animations, which I'd like to add to the video, but I realised they only trigger when actively entering the shop range. This means a replay of a game, with a hero stepping towards a shop won't trigger the animations, which again means I must controll the hero manually in private lobby to force the animations.
    Since I can't use the free camera command in a private lobby, I compromised by using monkey king's transform (mischief) ability and toggeling showcase-view This way I can get as close to the shop withouth having a standing out unit. The only thing that's left is the unit selection ring of the shop character showing. Here's a picture of what I mean:

    Is there a way to hide these selection rings via commands or do you have any workaround solution?

    I really hope to find help by reaching out to the Dota 2 Team and I look forward to hear from you.
    Kind regards
