Indie program

The Indie program is designed to support up-and-coming talent by making it easier to access Hollywood-grade motion capture. Importantly, it gives indies, young studios, and game developers a more affordable way to bring projects to life – all without compromising on quality.


By enhancing the agility of your production and creating realistic content on the fly, you can grow your business and maximize the time and talents of your team.


The program

Movella's Indie Program equips you with the same triple-A quality tools used in the film industry, but on an entry-level budget. It means you, the creator, get a jump start, enabling you to integrate Xsens motion capture into your pipeline.


You can adapt your MVN Animate Pro software subscription as your business grows, saving you money across the board.


To sign up, you must meet the following criteria:


  • New Movella customer
  • Registered company (CoC, VAT no.)
  • Revenue over last fiscal year of no more than $550,000 (€500,000)

Xsens hardware and software

The Indie program enables a more affordable way to integrate the Xsens motion capture into your pipeline. Next to the hardware, you will need MVN Animate software. Your MVN Animate Pro software subscription adapts according to the growth of your business in subsequent years.

Choosing between MVN Link and MVN Awinda depends on your motion capture goals. For inspiration, here are two scenarios to help you pick the best hardware for your needs:
