    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Add 3D marker positions to your Actor components, or let rigid body position and orientation manipulate them. Mapping skeletons to a mesh is handled by Unreal Engine’s Live Link plugin (a common interface for streaming and consuming animation data from external sources).

QTM Connect for Unreal is open source and built upon our open source C++ SDK. QTM Connect for Unreal is available on Github.
