C4D Lite/AE Material on Grouped Objects

I'm trying to animate the below object so that lights turn off one by one. Each bar on this DNA strand is a separate object. It's several objects grouped together (I'm new to C4D and may be using the wrong terminology). It appears that the materials are linked so that if I change one, all change. I'm trying to change the material on each object one by one. The animation is that each bar turns off, as a light going off, one after the other but not at the same time. I'm trying to animate each swatch so that it turns off at different times. When I add key frames to one swatch, the others turn off as well. I tried creating a new material and applying it to an individual bar, but when I alter that it alters all the bars and not just the bar I applied it to. Is the because the grouped items are linked somehow? If so, how do I unlink them? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
