    Coloring a Selected Polygon in 3ds max?

    I am working with 3ds max 2011. Can anyone tell me how to change the color of selected polygons without changing the color of the entire object?

    Another way is to simply select the faces you want coloured in Edit Poly/Mesh mode and drag the desired material onto them. I wouldn't reccomend this for anything too complex though, as libertycityAnimation said, multisub object is better for that as it allows you finer control.
