Selection and assignment issue in 2.8

I am working on the ball animation section, and I can’t seem to get the material to assign to just the selected faces, instead it applies to the whole thing.

What do I have set wrong in settings somewhere… I’ve tried it from a couple different approaches and it just keeps turning the whole thing red!

UPDATE: I clicked something and it fixed it. I’m going to try to recreate it, but my selection thing is different from the video, I feel like I must have some mode selected somewhere that is interfering…

Glad you were able to fix it :slight_smile: One thing I can think of is for the ball you actually need 2 materials. The first material will be assigned to the whole ball and the second one will be assigned to the faces or vertices that you select and assign it to
