DAZ Importer version 1.2

The DAZ importer is a tool for importing native DAZ Studio files (DAZ User File *.duf, DAZ System File *.dsf) into Blender. It also contains some tools to make the assets more animation friendly.

Release candidate 2: https://www.dropbox.com/s/x1tkb0khjycq251/import-daz-v1.2-20170818.zip
Main documentation page: http://diffeomorphic.blogspot.se/p/daz-importer-version-12.html

Since the previous stable version was released half a year ago there has been several improvements and additions.
  • A DAZ Studio plug-in for exporting the final world space coordinates for vertices and bones.
  • Limits on the number of facial expressions overcome, using handlers for bone drivers.
  • Material improvements, in particular for Cycles.
  • Posing improvements.
  • Many small bugfixes and additional features.
The most signicant improvement is the DAZ Studio plug-in. In previous versions Wavefront or Collada files could be used to find the final meshes with all morphs included, but this did not always work correctly. In version 1.1 I also attempted to deduce the final locations directly from the DAZ Studio files. While this in theory must be possible (after all, DAZ Studio does it), I never got it to work right, especially not fitting clothes to arbitrary morphed meshes. After I started to use the DAZ Studio plug-in to export the final world-space coordinates, meshes have always looked the same in Blender as in DAZ Studio.

The script has mainly been tested with DAZ Studio 4.9 and Blender 2.78c on Windows 7.

  1. Hi,
    I'm trying your plugin but I still have the same error :
    Missing local asset:
    in file:

    I try to import a simple V4 (no morph, a simple cloth), in Blender 2.78 from Daz 4.9 pro, Windows 10.
    Any clue?
    Thanks !

  2. Until very recently I had not tested Poser figures, because I did not realize that DS could handle those. A major reason for the newest RC is to fix some errors that showed up then, see http://diffeomorphic.blogspot.se/2017/08/new-release-candidate.html. That release might fix problems for V4 as well.

    Unfortunately, some new problems appeared when I tried to convert Poser figures to Rigify. Those should be fixed in the development version.

  3. Hi,
    I just installed the new release candidate; it works well with M4 but I still have the same error with V4
    I guess something is wrong with my current installation.
    I'll try to reinstall DAZ and V4, to see if it fix the problem...
