Daz Importer version 1.4

This is the main documentation side for the stable version 1.4. Documentation for the previous version 1.3 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 4.10 and Blender 2.79a and Blender 2.80 on Windows 7.

  1. Thank you so much!
    Got a question though, is there a way to set the MHX game engine rig instead of the default one? Thanks!

    1. Sorry, but what is the MHX game engine rig? It is not something I recall making, be perhaps I'm just going senile.

  2. Thank you for your hard work!

  3. Convert to Rigify:
    Switch Rotation-Pole, among other buttons, do nothing except deselect all objects.
