Introduction


This script will help Daz Studio content creators package their products for distribution;

This script should only be used by persons familiar with MSDOS and batch files.

The batch files produced by this script have the potential to destroy irreplaceable files!



Installation


Unzip the attach zip file in your Daz Studio content folder


typically this means something like

C:\Users\UserName\Documents\DAZ 3D\Studio\My Library


or

C:\Program Files (x86)\DAZ\Studio\content


if the installation went well, you will find the script in

Daz Studio Formats / My Library / Scripts / mcasual


or

studio / scripts / mcasual




Use

Warning : this script should only be used by someone familiar with msDos and batch files.

1 - Select a Daz Studio library folder. Example: C:/Users/UserName/Documents/DAZ 3D/Studio/My Library

2 - Build the list of files and folders to be packaged. Only files and folder within the selected Library will be considered.

example:
  • C:/Users/UserName/Documents/DAZ 3D/Studio/My Library/data/mCasual/mcjGenesisDress
  • C:/Users/UserName/Documents/DAZ 3D/Studio/My Library/Runtime/Textures/mcasual/mcjGenesisDressPixabay.jpg
  • C:/Users/UserName/Documents/DAZ 3D/Studio/My Library/People/Genesis/Clothing/mcasual/mcjGenesisDress.duf
  • C:/Users/UserName/Documents/DAZ 3D/Studio/My Library/People/Genesis/Clothing/mcasual/mcjGenesisDress.duf.png
3 - Optional: save the package list using the "save list" button. Example: mcjGenesisDress.packlist

4 - Create the batch file using the "Create Batch File" button. Example: mcjGenesisDress.bat

5 - Run the batch file, manually or using the "Run Batch File" button.

All the Files and folders in the package list will be copied to a folder with the same name as the batch file filename.
This folder will be located in the same folder as the batch file

in the example shown below the batch file mcjGenesisDress.bat was created in the folder c:\teleblender\

The batch file in turn created a folder named mcjGenesisDress in the folder c:\teleblender\


here is the structure of the c:\teleblender\mcjGenesisDress folder
