EVE prob is a grate tool, thank you CCP!!!

I am not a programmer (even though i know how to program with OOP) and i can understand how to write a scene
What I am is an animator, I work with Maya and I'm trying to use the python program 'dae-to-red-master'

In the README file it says:
3. Run the conversion command "dae_to_red"
on one of the exported .dae files like so:
$>dae_to_red Blender\example.dae


3. Run the Python program on the input (.dae) file in order
to create an output (.red) file.

OK, I have a .dae file with animation out of Maya, now what?
How can I run the python program on the "input (.dae) file"
In other words: how do you use this tool? which file should I run and how?

For you (python programmers) its must be funny that I cant understand, but please, this too was build for movie makers like all of us, not only for the hardcore programmers. so please PLEASE help me and guide me on the steps I need to take in order to convert my .dae files to .red and .yaml

I did it!!!
OMG that was so hard!

after weeks of waiting for an answer i finely solve this problem.

If someone needs help please let me know. I thought maybe to write what i did to use this python program but honestly, this is way too much for me to remember every single step.
