Matérial Export in Maya2009

Firstly, i hope I ask my question on the good board, sorry if it is not the case…
I have a simple question for Collada in Maya.
I want to know if it is possible to export just a material ?
I explain : i select a material in the hypershade of Maya, for example a materaila which called “blinn1” et i use “export selection” for exporting it in collada…

but it seems not working ?
maybe it is not possible, i need to export the geometry ?

thanks a lot

Can you post the export .dae that you get from that?

You can also post your question to the ColladaMaya project forum.
