Assigning different materials to parts of assembly in Photoworks

This might be a simple one for you do I assign different materials to the parts of my assembly in Solidworks 2K3/Photoworks 3? The rendering tree menu doesn't expand the material tree below assembly

In 2003 PW1 you can only apply one material to an assembly. To have different materials on different parts you need to apply the material at the part level.

Open the part and apply the material to features, faces or the entire part. Click back to the assembly and hit the rebuild button or control Q. Render. The material applied to the part should now be visible in the assembly.
