Beautiful render! Glad you managed to get things working after all the grief you went through.

She looks really excellent, and I'm glad you got it working.
If you're into this kind of DAZ-Blender experimentation (like I need to do), I highly recommend checking out the Twitch streams of a couple of my buds, WP_Guru (Jay), and Chris Cox. They both do a lot of Blender / DAZ stuff, and are great guys. (hope these URLs show up...)

Thanks for those links, but I have to avoid Twitch because at one time I got addicted to it and couldn't get anything done. I do use the Blender Artists' forums when I need advice, and I think Chris Cox is a name I've seen there once or twice.
Now I have a plug in installed that works I will be able to do an immense amount with some of the Poser and DAZ Studio content I have bought in the past 20 years. That will be a lot of fun, a lot more so than that first wasted weekend trying to get the Studio to Blender Bridge working...

I'm glad you got that working, and with good results! I'm in the process of rebuilding my setup on a new laptop, so wish me luck.

Thank you! This process was fun in the end and there is a lot more to come.
I wish you well on that migration! I bought a 12 core 3.46GHz Mac Pro at the end of February last year and transferring data going back over 20 years and installing tons of new software was a chore that took months. I now have a dream triple monitor setup with a 32 inch 3840x2160 centre monitor and a 24 inch 1920x1200 monitor to each side of it. 2x500GB SSDs in the Mac, plus 4x4TB hard drives, so I have enough storage to keep me going for a good long while.
