DAZ Importer version 1.2

This is the main documentation side for the stable version 1.2. Documentation for the previous version 1.1 can be found here.

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.

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