In order to clarify the influence of size and spatial distribution of three-dimensional pinning centers (3D-PCs) on hybrid flux pinning, columnar defects (CDs) were installed by using 200 MeV Xe ions along the $$c$$-axis direction into quasi-multilayered films consisting of YBa$$_{2}$$Cu$$_{3}$$Oy layers and pseudo layers of BaSnO$$_{3}$$. The positive effect of the BaSnO$$_{3}$$ doping on the hybrid flux pinning stands out for the critical current density $$J_{rm c}$$ around $$B parallel c$$ in high magnetic field and/or inclined magnetic field off the $$c$$-axis, whereas there is little difference in the $$J_{rm c}$$ at $$B parallel c$$ among the same growth temperature samples for low magnetic field. In the case of the in-plane distributed BaSnO$$_{3}$$ nano-dots, the Jc around $$B parallel ab$$ is remarkably enhanced, whereas there is a detrimental effect on the Jc around $$B parallel c$$. These imply that the tuning of 3D-PCs is one of the keys to improve the $$J_{rm c}$$ at all magnetic field orientations for the hybrid flux pinning.
