I have probably the same target as you, and I'm gathering information on how to render DAZ 3D Genesis avatars in my own Windows window.
I already have an avatar, not DAZ nor sophisticated, a bit realistic, running and talking in a WPF window since mid 2012.
But now I need to replace it with something like Victoria 5 with hair and cloths. I already bought an extensive bundle on Victoria5, didn't have much time to try to get it rendered in WPF yet.
Apparently you managed to get Victoria5 rendered live into WPF, congratulations.
Can you tell me some of the steps you took, starting from a Victoria 5 bundle, like file conversions with which tool x?
Until now, I used my own interpolation of viseme vertices to have my primitive avatar speaking.
It would be much better to manipulate the avatar at a much higher level of course.
Everything needs to be realtime in my case. I also want to dynamically modify rendering resolution, depending for instance on the actual workload of an animation server or on an internet video transmission bottleneck.
If you don't like to publish your information, we can privately mail, and see if we can help each other.
