Unreal Engine (live)

The Unreal Engine 4 supports the Xsens MVN live stream through Live Link by Xsens or the IKinema plugin.


You can stream your Motion Capture data live from MVN into Unreal. This way, you can directly have your character interact with the virtual environment while you are performing.

Integration Options

  • FBX export/import

  • Live streaming

To get started, download the plugin from the Unreal Marketplace (MVN Live Link) enable the livestream in MVN and setup your character in Unreal.

All the steps to setup the entire Unreal Live pipeline can be found in this Tutorial or on our knowledge base (documentation and example project).
