I could have two seperate items such as a polygon cube and sphere and I'll assign a blinn to one, it will work and I can edit all the attributes fine however the colour of the other item all changes and then when I try and assign another material, say, a lambert to the the other item it will apply but when I alter the materials attributes nothing will change. Its like every item is linked to the first material I assign.
Obviously, being able to assign various materials of various colours which are visible while I work would be of great help.
I've racked my brain as to what is going on but I just can't figure it out! Please help!
