Anim files for DAZ?


#1

I’m new to DAZ. Where do I get animation files from?

The animations are paid… ?


#2

There are no animation files.

  1. You install Artful Physics Taylor.

  2. You start DAZ Studio Pro 4.10.x or 4.9.x

  3. You create your cloth/clothing in APT

  4. You save your results once satisfied

  5. In DAZ Studio you load your Genesis 3 or Genesis 8 model

  6. In DAZ Studio you ‘Read Cloth’ to get your animation including the clothing / cloth.

  7. Likewise you can send an animated DAZ model back to APT using Send Anim in DAZ Studio

Nothing else. No animations are supplied by the program.

How do I get the Genesis 3 or Genesis 8 model animations?

I guess buy them from the store?

Can I use Mixamo animations?

This isn’t really DAZ Studio support forum. You should join the DAZ Studio forums and ask such questions there.

Yes, you must buy them from the DAZ Store. And if you do, make sure you buy animations created specifically for Genesis 3 if using Genesis 3 model and animations created for Genesis 8 if creating animations for Genesis 8 models. The animations meant for V4 / M4 / Genesis / Genesis 2 will not work on Genesis 3 or Genesis 8.

For the Mixamo animations you missed your chance as they stopped giving them away free last August 2017 I think it was.

There are a big set of Carnegie Mellon University animations that have been converted to a GoFigure/DAZ Studio ‘aniMate’ aniblocks format, I think for Genesis 2 or Genesis 3, I forget. However, I don’t know if they are still available. If they are I seem to remember them being on shareCG.com.
