you simply browse up to your Daz Studio Content Folder

and the files will fall in the proper folder 



 Use

In Blender the motion tracking tools are in the Movie Clip Editor view/pane

We load the video clip


Here you may see i will limit my work to the segment going from frame 215 to 400. 

i click the Add-Marker button and i position my marker over the green-tape X


As you can see i reduced the size of the tracked image marker, i made 2 tracks


Time to export the tracks

Open the blender script named mcjBlenderMarkersExporter.py
