Unreal Engine Tutorial
Your Shadow motion capture system includes a plugin for UE4. You can live-stream character animation directly into your Unreal scene. Simply enable the plugin, hook it up to your character, and use interactive, full-body mocap animation in your level.
Install the plugin from the UE4 Marketplace. If you need a version or platform not listed, let us know and we can share it with you. We support Unreal Engine versions from 4.18 back to 4.8.
Create an Animation Blueprint
Import a rigged character into your level. Our Shadow character includes a mesh that is rigged to our standard skeleton.
Use the Add New button in the Content Browser to create an Animation Blueprint.
Place your character and play the level
Drag and drop your Animation Blueprint into the level. Press play to start live-streaming motion capture from your Shadow system.
You can also build and deploy your project now.
You will need to set up and start your Shadow system in our software. UE4 only attaches to existing data streams.
