I noticed in your FAQ that you support Unreal Engine. Does this include the new Unreal Engine 4 that was just released?

 

If not, are there plans to add support for Unreal Engine 4?

We have older interfaces that connect to Unreal 2.5. It would just take a short time to port to Unreal (I expect).

Generally, the connections work like this:

1) For each Unreal character, create a SmartBody character with the same skeletal hierarchy

2) For each object in the scene that your character can interact with, create an equivalent one in SmartBody (i.e. an object that can be picked up or touched).

3) In each step, advance SmartBody, then copy over the SmartBody character state to the Unreal character state

Maybe I can get an intern or student to do this..

I'd just like to say I would very, very much like to see an Unreal Engine 4 integration.

Yes, me too. I have a collaborator that is working on such a thing. I'll try to get him to share this code.
