Hi guys ! I'm moving from Airflow to a more flexible data stack. I'm trying to build a workflow around assets as many people there :) But I am a little bit confused about how to materialize custom objects from assets that I defined with asset decorator. Is it possible to do it without AssetMaterialization? Or what is the point to build a job on assets instead of ops. I want to materialize some metadata and plot it in dagit. But I don't find any helpfull information about it .

hey @Charubaiel - I noticed that our documentation on this is a little bit lacking, so I posted a PR to improve it. here's the preview: https://dagster-git-asset-metadata-doc-elementl.vercel.app/concepts/assets/software-defined-assets#recording-materializaton-metadata does this help answer your question?
