    Thank you very, very much for creating such a wonderful products, that the Bridges are.

    I am a big fan of Daz 3D products and having opportunity to bring them to the other programs

    is an extraordinary thing for me.

    Please keep up with the further work on Bridges and extend them as much as possible.

    In all sincerity, thank you for your, and your team's, tremendous work on the DAZ Bridges. My personal favorites are the Blender and Unity bridges. That you have worked so hard to bring all the properties of DAZ 3D products to being able to bridges between DAZ Studio and other 3D environments has really increased the value of my product library as I started to work more in Blender than in DAZ Studio.

    I hope you are able to maintain your momentum to finally create fully integrated two-way bridges with DAZ Studio. I think this also add appeal to making both more and less resource intensive models for sale in the DAZ store since you will be able to target a wider market.

    Not sure what I'm being thanked for, but you're welcome for whatever it is I did!

  • What about support for " 3D Bridge for Photoshop" ? Will there be any help here as the forum seems littered with comments about it not working?

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately, my team does not work on the Photoshop bridge so, we wouldn't be able to help with that. At the moment the best way to get support on the Photoshop bridge is to create a ticket for it.

  • I would give a dozen donuts for a Daz to Motionbuilder bridge.

    I would give two dozen if wired to the voice device using clusters

    Any plans in this area? Only wink and node required

    The bridges are fairly new so, there is a lot being developed right now currently. Nothing planned at the moment but, I will keep it in mind. 

  • Whenever I import Genesis 8 figures my C4d gets Not responding, but genesis 3 is working smoothly. Can anyone help me?

    Is there any hope for a bridge with Modo ?

    If it is unlikely, or not any time soon, I would prefer you say so. I would perfectly understand.

    Daz and bridge idea is very good. And they are mostly working well now. But I can see 2 big issue about bridges. First one is morph exporting system. And second is material exporting.

    I can use DazToBlender perfectly with material export/textures/maps and parameters. And very nice render. But i can not give the same result with Maya. DazToMaya only adding texture maps into material. No parameters or no roughness maps, specular etc.. (I am talking about for maay or max animators. I am using UE4.)

    Also, i can not choose my specific morphs easily. DazToMaya doesn't have any panel or screen for choosing morph. But DazToUnreal has.. 

    Anyway, there are all my ideas :) Thank you for plugins.

    Here is a shoot from my latest work below.


    Thanks. - moreffector -

    @moreffector 
    Thanks for your input. We actually are in the process of adding a new dialog to all the bridges. It's based on the Unreal one with some small changes. It's actually already supported in the new blender update. 

    https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/486621/daz-to-blender-morph-update-spring-cleaning-update-2-3-1#latest
    We built it in a way that it can be shared for all the bridges in time it will be ported to the other bridges as well.

    Hi guys,

    I am having an issue with the DAZ to Blender Bridge. I'm using the latest version 2.3.1.1 that I installed yesterday via DIM. The G8F, clothes, hair, pose, animation etc all seem to export ok.

    However, when I use the Daz To Blender addon in Blender 2.91.2, the animation does not play, even though there are 549 frames in the Timeline. Yes, I did select Animation checkbox in the dialogue box.

    I can manually pose the character in Blender. But that is not the point of exporting an animation is it?

    Is there a trick involved, or am I missing something?

    Also it would be really handy if there were documentation on Daz To Blender. Particulary for the Blender side explaining all the bits 'n pieces in the Addon Pane.

  • The Bridge to blender works great on genesis figures, but there are lots of problems with other models. I tried to bridge the monkey business figure, it give me errors and no morphs.

  • Using the latest version of Daz to 3DS Max Bridge to transfer Genesis 8 and 8.1 characters from Daz Studio 4.15 Pro into 3DS Max 2020.  Here are some questions regarding errors:

    Any props (e.g. Clothing such as Basic Wear) that use 3Delight materials will cause an error when importing into 3DS Max (see image) but iRay materials work fine.

    *** Morphs for Facial Expressions do not translate into Max.  Most of the body morphs do, with some exceptions.

    Also, when will the 3DS Max Bridge have support for tranferring Poses or Animation, as the Blender Bridge already has?

    Thanks,

    Pete

    No, I am afraid the bridge is only from Daz Studio to the target application.

    so guys, my issue is that when i use BRIDGE To transfer from daz STUDIO to C4D the only thing that imports is the IK rigs, not the physical model. I unistalled DAZ Central, Studio, and Bridge again and again. and i dont know what the update did. 

  • Venomacid88Venomacid88 Posts: 8

    I've installed the latest version of DaztoC4D 1.3.0. Nintey percent of my commissioned models work when being imported. There's one imparticular that I've been trying to move over to C4D that just keeps crashing the program; even with the earlier versions of the bridge. I feel I may need to send you the files to figure out what the issue is; I'm using S24.
