NeuronAnimator is a minimum-required subset of the Perception Neuron SDK for Unity. This plugin is aiming to provide the following points:

Retargetable

The original SDK doesn't support retargeting, and therefore models have to be rigged in a very specific way. Within this plugin, you can animate any humanoid model with Neuron.

Simpleness

All you have to do is just adding the NeuronAnimator component to a game object. Then it starts controlling the model based on input from Neuron mocap system. That’s that! Simple!

Robustness

The original SDK lacks thread-safety and hence crashes periodically in some environments. To avoid issues like this, the entire code has been overhauled for this plugin. Should work robustly!

Limitations

  • To retrieve retargeting information properly, the target model has to be in a perfect T-stance pose. If the default pose of the model looks loose (hands are lower than shoulder, feet are widely opened, etc.), it’s recommended to straighten up manually.
