# Animation nodes, finding current material for object

I need to to make an object list and a material list from 100 existing objects. Making the object list is simple, I just box-select the objects and in animation node I use the "From Selection" option from the "create Object List" node.

Unfortunately, there is no such option for materials list. Is there I way I can automate creating a materials list from an object list? I have tried the "expression" node, but was not able to extract the materials list, due to my limited knowledge of python.

Sincerely,

Patrice

Welcome to StackExchange. You can easily get the material of the object with Expression Node by using Obj.material_slots[Index].material. Here I have made AN-Material of Object group-node which allows getting material of any object:
