Face Selection: highlights nearby faces
Hey, im new to maya and im following this tutorial.

Im extruding faces however there's this one part i cant seem to do and its giving me a headache.

each time i choose a face, the edges will be highlighted yellow and so will the nearby faces which are highlighted red. When i select one face and then transform its size, itll affect the whole surrounding areas including the red edged faces and i dont want this to happen

how can i just transform the size of the face that i selected without having the nearby faces transforming along side it?

Look into the tool options and you will have soft selection enabled, you can turn it off in the options or hit the b key to toggle it on and off.
