Newbie Question - Different textures on different parts of the model

Hey, A bit of a newbie question here - how do you select different parts of a model to receive different textures/materials? For example, I have a nice chair model that I want to add into my scene to render in YafaRay, but I want the chair’s legs to have a chrome-ey material, while the seat and stuff needs to have a more matte finish. How do I apply materials to these different parts of the model? Every material I apply is just applied to the model as a whole.

Thanks :smiley:—material-indice


you could also UV map different part of your chair
so check out the wiki for UV mapping!


And if you find it bothersome to do this with material indexes, speak out here! :wink:
