FBX Exporter

What is the FBX Exporter?

The FBX Exporter provides support for the industry standard FBX 3D format used by Autodesk, and supported by most other major 3D applications. Exporting in the FBX format provides you access to an industry-wide 3D format, and allows you to use your DAZ content in products such as Motion Builder, Maya, LightWave, 3D Studio Max, Cinema4D and others.

This plug-in exports FBX version 5 or 6 (exporting version 5 is an option in the export option dialog). The application used to import the file must be capable of reading FBX versions 5 or 6.
