Introduction
This script for Daz Studio will take care of posing the head, and optionally, the neck, chest, abdomen and hip, so that the face faces the current camera.
This script was suggested by Daz Forums member Tugpsx

Use
Select a figure’s head.
launch the script
it looks like this

select the playrange to be processed.
Select the bones (other than the head ) that participate in the twisting of the body required to bring the face to face the camera.
click on the Doit buttom
done

the script doesn’t orient the head using a very complicated process
it’ works about okay for standing poses but for not for horizontal poses

if you temporarily Z-Rotate the camera so that your figure, as seen from that camera looks like it’s standing up
then Look-At-The-Camera script will work
once that’s done, you un-rotate the camera

or you could parent a camera to your render camera, we’ll call it the laydown camera
you z-rotate the lay-down camera until the figure as seen from the layDowncamera looks like it’s standing up
you make the lay-down camera the current viewcam
and run the script
