Hi Guys,

Brand new and I'm trying to import an animation block from Daz3D. I've followed the steps in this video tutorial, multiple times, using both a Genesis 3 and Genesis 8 female, but unfortunately, I'm totally stuck. 

1. Preset Daz4 Genesis doesn't map most of the bone structure:https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/52db4925-57a7-4945-9d50-3a6d.png

2. When I manually try to map it, I get an error when I map it as I believe it should be mapped (not 100% sure):
all mapped bones must be under the hip bone

3. When I map it in the way that doesn't result in the message above, the character doesn't move properly. 

Pulling my hair out, here. Any ideas what I'm missing?

@ newoski,

Re: Daz4 Genesis
Please check my test report as follows:
(Sample Model: Genesis 8 Starter Essentials Female)

1. DS4 FBX Export Option
  When exporting the Genesis character, select FBX2011 at Output Options.

    Fig1 DS4 FBX Export Option

2. Please check your version of 3DXchange.
  In 3DX6 and 7: Characterization should be done automatically by
  Auto Conversion feature for Genesis characters. But not in 3DX5.
  The following notice should appear when you open the Genesis FBX file on 3DXchange.

     Fig3 Auto Conversion_2

    Fig4 Auto Characterization at 3DXchange 6 and 7 (Body Opacity=10%)
    Just push 「Convert to Non-Standard」 button only.   (No need to assign Presets as Daz4 Genesis)

Manual Mapping chart
  If you map manually, check the following fig as a sample.
  You'd better use Scene Tree to identify the proper bone.

Please confirm the hip position.
