this way :

it can also be used for Poser Scenes, although there's caveats

history:

Nov 3 2013 corrected mcjBlendBotForCarrara which was now unable to invoke the addCamera function in the mcjBlendBot module

Introduction
─────────────────────────────────────────
On my site you can find a script which lets Daz Studio users export
scenes and render them in Blender, including the use of the Blender Cycles renderer

the Daz script exports the scene as an .obj file and creates a python script which is then
used by Blender to load the .obj (scene) and do all the tedious chores needed to make
the scene render correctly.

Since Carrara users also want to render scenes in Blender/Cycles i wrote a blender-python script
which uses the same services as the Daz Studio version : a kit of blender python scripts named mcjBlendBot )

Later in 2013 i'll probably improve on this since the results are not as good as the Daz Studio version

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Tried a few quick model exports to obj, dae and 3ds, none worked well with materials, only obj seemed to work, but as you said, lots of extra tweaking is needed.
    What Carrara settings for the obj export did you use?

    Can't wait for the updated version!

    don't know if it's a change in Blender but the mcjBlendBotForCarrara module
    was not able to do the last step of it's list of tasks which was the creation of a camera

    this was fixed today

    so you'd need to download the new zip package
    and unzip it in your blender scripts/modules folder

    new mcjTeleblender https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts3/mcjteleblender2
    old mcjTeleblender https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts/mcjteleblender-for-ds1-2-3-4

    In other news you can use the mcjBlendBotForCarrara module to import Poser scenes
    it's explained here : https://sites.google.com/site/mcasualsdazscripts3/teleblendforposer

    There's a Poser Python script available here: http://3doutlaw.com/home/?page_id=631&did=17 which is written to automate map gathering and be used with mjcTeleBlender.

    I haven't tried it myself due to being a Blender dunce :) but it may offer the solution you (or rather, your Poser using followers) were hoping for?
