There are a number of super smart scripts that Code 66 has written to make tedious tasks easier in DAZ Studio as well as enrich your existing (including legacy) content .

He has released a series of script volume “toolboxes” in the DAZ 3D store that include some of his most useful scripting gadgets to date.

In this tutorial he goes over eight case studies, where he spruces up legacy content, enhances that content with advanced materials and shows new powerful controls over that content across a range of scenes demonstrating how to use his scripts in combination.

This product includes a searchable version of the MP4 video files that includes optional subtitles. Tutorial Content

About the Presenter : Totte Alm (Code66)
Totte lives in Sweden and has been programming since the late 70s. He started to dabble in 3D back in the early 1990s with StrataVision 3D and later Bryce.
His interest for the world of DAZ Studio started around 2010, to create maps and handouts for the many table top role playing game adventures he was writing and playing.
Totte then started to create some 3D content for DAZ Studio in 2015 and then gradually moved over to create more and more script based products instead of pure 3D prop content.
His favourite tools for making 3D products and textures are Modo, UVLayout, the Substance suite and FilterForge.
Totte has been an independent IT consultant for over 20 years, and also have been using DAZ Studio renders in dialogs in many bespoke development projects for various clients to brighten up otherwise boring programs!
He spend a lot of time walking the dogs and tries to play role playing games as much as time provides.
