i just recently started using blender, and i was following a tutorial on how to make a vase. in it it’s basically a vase and a flat plane underneath it with texturing on both. i try to select just the plane while in object mode, but it selects both the vase and the plane. how do i separate the two from each other? i know making one the parent of the other makes them “stick” together. but i don’t know how to “unstick” them.
oh, and also, where is the subsurf option available. i can’t find it anywhere on blender 2.42.
