Exporting a 3 part model into Hitfilm 4 Pro

I was following a tutorial on YouTube on modeling an eyeball, it involves a 3 part construction and end up 3 separate objects with individual textures applied. I was wanting to export this .blend file into Hitfilm 4 Pro as an .OBJ file but when doing so I found almost any way that I tried exporting it comes into Hitfilm with just one material selection instead of the three. Is there something that needs to be done in order to get all three materials to export individually so they can be applied in Hitfilm 4 Pro? I know that not many probably use Hitfilm on here but I would like to be able to create nice looking models and use them into a NLE compositor that I am more comfortable with. (Nodes make me go crazy) Any help would be much appreciated and I apologize if this is posted in the wrong category.

I guess no one really has any experience with Hitfilm on here with their own created 3d models. I will search around some more elsewhere to see if anyone else might have some input.
