Each character or prop is organized into its own folder in the Content Browser with subfolders for its Textures and Material Instances. Materials Instances are created for each Surface in Daz Studio. The Material Instances are based on a handful of Materials included with the plugin, but these can be overridden in the settings to use your own Materials. A shared Material Function is used to connect most of the parameters in the included Materials, so making project wide changes to the Materials is simple.
