As you may know, you can export a scene from Daz Studio as an .obj file.

( also see mcjGeoSender and mcjTeleBlender )

Later, you can import it in Blender and use all its nifty services, notably the awesome Cycles renderer.

this free script mcjexportcamtoblender lets you export animated cameras from Daz Studio as a "Blender Python Script".

In Blender, you create/select a camera,

run the Blender Python Script in the Text Editor panel,

and it applies the animation to the camera, starting at the current frame.

1st animated image

the static/still Daz studio scene was exported to Blender using mcjTeleblender
( a new version of mcjTeleblender with proper scaling factor ( 1%) will be posted incessantly )
the Daz Studio camera animation was exported using mcjexportcamtoblender
the camera animation was imported in blender
rendered in Blender cycles

2nd animated image
same scene hardware-rendered in Daz Studio

if you refresh this page, the two gifs should be in sync

it's a Moebius strip camera path ! the legend goes that .... what was it called the something experiment
the Philadelphia experiment : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philadelphia_Experiment

note that mcjTeleblender can render animated Daz Studio scenes in Blender

a Blender to Daz Studio camera exporter will be published very soon

    example

    you set a scene in Daz Studio

    you animate a camera

    you use this script to export the camera animation as a file ( a blender python script in fact )

    you use mcjTeleblender to export and "cook" your scene so it's ready to render in
    Blender with the Cycles renderer, ( which is like Octane and LuxRender )

    you select or create a camera in Blender's scene

    you load and run the camera animation file

    you're ready to render this static scene from the point of view of the animated camera

    ----

    if your daz studio scene is animated, then you'd have to use mcjTeleblender

    Presently, mcjTeleblender exports only one camera to Blender. It would be nice if it could export all camera in a scene to Blender.

    the new version has a "scale" parameter

    so if you exported a scene, for example, using mcjTeleBlender

    with a non standard scale factor of 10%

    you can export animated cameras with the same scale

    it all fits ( puttin on the ritz )

    Test ok

    ideal for dynamic clothing for figures in Blender, it is necessary to change the scale (5) to work wonders.


    Thanks Casual
