Starting with Windows 7 if you right click on the downloaded zip file


and select the [Extract All ....] pop-up menu item

you simply browse up to your Daz Studio Content Folder

and the files will fall in the proper folder 




Use


For each foot of your figure.
Create a primitive plane, any size will do.
In the plane creation options, 'primary Axis' must be 'Y Positive'.
In Daz Studio's 'scene' tab, rename them 'lSole' and 'rSole'.
Parent each plane to its respective foot.
Orient the planes like their respective shoe soles.
( As if the shoe soles were sticky and you walked on a sheet of paper )

Note that there's also a button titled "Create Sole Planes"
Which will create and roughly position those planes
But you will need to readjust them for your specific shoes

Run the script

Select the appropriate timerange.
click the 'Go' button.

The feet will be bent/twisted just the right amount
to make the shoe soles ( the planes ) horizontal.
