Streaming Face data to iClone

Live streaming face data captured by our app (Rokoko Remote) from Rokoko Studio Live to iClone is unfortunately not supported in Reallusion’s Motion Live plugin. We currently only support live face data streaming in our Unreal, Unity and Blender plugins. 

You can use Reallusion’s own face tracking app and combine it with the data from the Smartsuit Pro for live streaming or you can export the blendshapes as an FBX file in Rokoko Studio and then import it into iClone.
