Daz Studio offers several bridges that connect your Daz Studio content to many popular 3D platforms and game engines, giving you the freedom to use any free Daz 3D model you receive from us in other programs you may wish to use. These bridges are all free plugins that can be accessed through Daz Central.
We currently have open-source bridges available for Maya, Blender, Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, Unreal Engine, and Unity. The best part about these bridges is how hassle-free they are by design. You won’t have to fuss over rigging, polygons, or converting materials — Daz will take care of all of that for you. Bridges are a powerful tool as you learn and master 3D art as you learn how to use Daz Studio in tandem with other popular programs.
