Free Unreal Live Link for Maya #mayamonday
Unreal Live Link speeds up your workflow with this free tool for streaming data from Maya to UE. To summarize, it gives you a common interface to stream all sorts of media from multiple sources. Use motion capture systems, for example, connect your assets, and more. Then, apply that data “directly to the Actors in your level.” Read more about this in the Unreal Engine documentation: Using Live Link Data.
