Back to Basics, OSX Edition 2 of 3, Installing DS4 Plugins

This guide is a basic overview, with screenshots, of installing a DS4 plugin.  We're going to use a fairly complex plugin for this example, the DAZ Content Creation Tools (CCT), but most other plugin installers will work the same way.

To get started, just like installing DS4, double click on the application installer package in Finder.  Shortly afterwards you will be presented with a screen much like this one.  Click [Next] when you're ready to start installing.

You will immediately be prompted to accept the license agreement.  Please read the agreement, change the (Radial Button) next to "I Accept the Agreement" and click the [Next] button.

Next we're ready to get going!  The great thing about installing plugins is that there isn't much to do or to decide about!  The installer is "smart" enough to know which versions of DAZ Studio you have and where they are installed. So click [Next] to continue onward.

And we watch the install go for a bit...

In some really complex packages, you'll actually see it installing sub-components, like this!

And that's pretty much it... we can see below that we just need to click [Next] ...

Some plugin installers may ask you to install some content as well.  See the next tutorial on that if you're unsure, but in general, you'll want to point the content installer at the same directory where you installed your DS4 Built-in content.
