Description

The Unreal Live Link plug-in makes it possible to stream animation data from Maya to Unreal in real time. Whether you’re working between the two tools in a virtual production environment or building your next game, you can now work on character assets in Maya and see previews of your work reflected immediately in Unreal, as you make changes. 

 

Version 1.1.1

  • Fixed an issue where the previous frame was sent to Unreal instead of the current frame.

 

Version 1.1

Features Include:

  • Support for Custom Attributes. When live linking a skeleton joint from Maya to Unreal, you can choose to stream any keyframed custom attributes.
  • Support for Unreal Engine 5.0. The Unreal Engine version is selected through a new drop-down menu in the UI.
  • The source code is available under the MIT license in GitHub here
  • Support for Maya Z-up scenes.
  • Network endpoints saving
  • Support for Linux CentOS 7
  • Bug fixes

 

Version 1.0

Features Include:

  • A simplified installation experience allows you to get up-and-running in a matter of minutes.
  • The new streamlined interface lets you easily define and manage which Maya assets will be streamed to Unreal.
  • Joint hierarchy transforms can be connected, allowing for character to character animation streaming.
  • BlendShapes are supported, enabling you to make changes to characters such as facial expressions and lip-syncing, and see them in-context in Unreal.
  • Camera attributes including transforms, angle of view, focal length, film gate, camera aperture, film aspect ratio, depth of field, focus distance, and fStop are supported.
  • Lighting adjustments including color, intensity, cone angle, and penumbra angle are supported.
  • Scene timecode is streamed to Unreal as metadata, allowing play head synchronization between Maya and Unreal.

    I like the new update with maya livelink knowing if it's Zup or Yup but there's a bug I encountered that I see other people also seeing
    https://youtu.be/yBav5OVEyoI?t=935

    if I link a root bone, and direct control the rootbone, or attribute from maya, it transfers over the values live to unreal5. if I control the attribute or bone from another control. unreal5 only updates if i scrub the maya timeline. the same issue is visible in this youtube video i found for maya live link and unreal 5.

    Ideally I'd like to see the skeleton update when i move a control

  • Does it work with Maya 2022.3
    Nicolas Miebach | January 31, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I did install the PlugIn but the installer does not copy any Files to the PlugIn Directory. So I can´t open the plugin because the MEL Command can´t find the scripts..

    Any clues?

    Paul Siciliano | February 15, 2022

    Same issue here. **Then I made sure that the Plugin: GamePipeline.mll was also checked ON (because it wasn't)... re-opened the file then the Unreal LiveLink menu item showed up under file menu, as it should. Hope this helps.
