There are all sorts of ways to accomplish this. You can’t be expected to remember all of them.
One more option is to use Animate to export MDD and Fenric’s MDD plug-in for Carrara. This method is particularily useful if you want to go through another program to add things, like dynamics, by going through Marvelous Designer, Messiah, etc.
The thing is: DUF doesn t work nearly as well in Carrara 8.5 and DS 4.5 as Daz Collada used to work in Carrara 8.1 and DS 3. it can t import morphs, textures or clothes: it only imports the animation correctly. Most impoprtant of all: it doesn t import dynamic clothes. All things that Daz Collada used to do routinely. When I tried to import Victoria 5 from DS 4.5, the black figure on the RIGHT is what I got. Reported in the bug tracker. After so many betas, I don t understand why we are regressing instead of progressing.
EDIT: Apologies. My mistake. For the previous scene, I saved in DS 4.5 as a Support asset/Figure Prop as I used to. For the following pic, I saved as Support asset/Scene. Now Victoria 5 morphs and clothes are imported. But still, no textures as the figure comes in black.
