Introduction

The Rokoko plugin for Blender is a powerful plugin that allows you to live stream data from Rokoko Studio to Blender, and retarget exported animations to a custom character.

Important!

If you encounter an issue with the current version of the Blender plugin, we recommend installing the Beta version of the plugin by clicking the button shown in the preferences window > Adds on > Rokoko Pluginewq.PNG

Requirements

In order to install the Blender plugin, you need:

  • Blender 2.8 or higher
