Motionbuilder (live)

MotionBuilder uses a plugin written by Xsens to live stream into the engine. MotionBuilder also supports import of motion capture data files from MVN Studio.


You can stream your Motion Capture data live from MVN into Motion Builder. This way, you can directly visualize your characters movement while you are performing.

Integration Options:

  • FBX export/import

  • Live streaming

To get started, download the plugin from the Xsens website (MVN Motion Builder Live Plugin), enable the livestream in MVN and setup your character in Motion Builder.

All the steps to setup the entire Motion Builder Live pipeline can be found in this Tutorial or in the Manual
