Models and Renders

 From:  Ed
I don't know if this is a model question or a render question as I am very new to this.

I have modeled a cylinder in MoI with a groove around the circumference.

I want to render it such that the cylinder has one material (color) and the groove has a different material.

I don't see a way in Bryce to select just one feature of an object and selectively apply the material.

Are models rendered with multiple materials created as multiple objects, or am I not understanding how to selectively apply a material?

By the way, MoI and Bryce are a very nice combination. I hope to post a picture here soon.
