A bridge to DAZ Studio and how do we save renders?

Hey all–so I am using iClone now but would prefer to use DAZ Studio for many reasons I won’t get into here. Is there a potential DAZ bridge to Ominivers in the works? Also, I am using the free version and found that I can’t save frames. When I try to set up a directory, I see a red lock on the folder. Do I have to use Enterprise to be able to save a rendered animation?


Hello @sepiasiren! No need to explain why you prefer a specific tool! That’s why we made Omniverse, so that we could use the tools we prefer without missing a beat!

I’m looking at their documentation, and I don’t see an export option for the USD file format which means a Connector (aka Bridge) would need to be made to translate the data over to USD. (I also do not see a USD file format plugin in their store.) So I will create a request for this and send it over to the development team!

I also suggest that you jump on this forum post and let the DAZ developers know that this is something that you want: Would we be getting a USD add-on - Daz 3D Forums

You don’t need an Omniverse Enterprise account to utilize any of the Omniverse features. Omniverse Enterprise is for people that need to transfer data between a team of individuals. You may, however, need to grab a license from Reallusion. Can you send me a screenshot of the red lock icon?

Also, do you know if you set up a localhost through Omniverse Nucleus?

Hey Wendy!

Thank you so much for understanding my preference and creating a request – YOU RAWK! Do you have any idea how long it might take should they be able to do so? And if so, will we be able to transfer over physics information as DAZ does have a physics engine for their clothing and hair, and can I be on a beta test list? I raise my hand, lol.

Can you tell I love Omniverse? Dude, I seriously love it – it is a game changer.

Over the weekend, I played with it and found out how to render frames and such – this was the result:

TYSM, and again, fingers, toes, and eyes crossed for a DAZ connector soon!
