I know this is a newbie question... and I am relatively new to C4D. I went through the Lynda & Cineversity training, but can't seem to figure this out.
I have C4D 12... and am trying to apply different materials to a polygon object of a cylinder... I select the polygons I need, but it seems to be stuck in modeling mode... where the little spikes appear from the selection and it won't accept the material. Can anyone tell me what I am overlooking?
