I'm working in a very complex project where I'm using ceiling plans at multiple heights within a single building level to indicate varying and overlapping soffit and finished ceiling heights. My frustration is that when I set the clip plane at a point where it cuts through any portion of the roof, the whole roof becomes visible, even through the building where it would normally be covered by ceilings which are now outside the view range. How can I prevent the roof from showing?? As an additional complication, I can't just turn the roofs off in the view because I have a faked standing seam roof which is really sloped glazing, so I can't turn off the sloped glazing without losing the rest of my curtain panels. Help!!

In this view the top clip plain is set at 10' 6" above the floor level, the cut plane at 8' 6" to avoid the 8' high soffits shown as dashed lines, and the view depth is set at 10' 6", trying to avoid the view of the ceiling which would normally be visible in the outer corridor. The greenish grey horizontally lined area is roof and the white vertically lined area is the sloped glazing standing in for a standing seam metal roof. Notice that they show through the hallway and anywhere an ACP is not in place, though Revit does recognize that it is being cut on the lower end shown at the top of the image.

 REFLECTED CEILING PLAN VISIBILITY:

I had a similar situation, multiple ceiling heights off the Main Floor Level.  I set the basic VIEW RANGE for the ceiling(s) that had the largest area on one level. 

Then for the other ceiling areas, I introduced various PLAN REGIONS with the CUT and VIEW RANGE levels adjusted to suit. You'll have to play around to get these tweaked just right.  Care should be taken NOT to overlap regions. Also any walls touched by Plan Regions may not show properly. If this is the case, carefully bring the Plan Region border just a little clear of the edge of the wall face with the EDIT command. 

If the attached Plan below shows clearly, you can also see the areas of EXPOSED ROOF STRUCTURE, TRUSSES, BEAMS and SKYLITES that also show in areas where there are no ceilings!  Just PERFECT!

 Hope it works for you!
