Want a truly unique VR avatar? Customizing your metaverse persona is easy with a VR avatar creator.
VIVERSE, HTC’s cross-platform metaverse, has you covered.
Here is a step-by-step guide to bringing your favorite avatars into VIVERSE:
1. Use the VR avatar creator you want
All journeys in VIVERSE begin with you. Choose among 4 different types of avatars to suit your varied needs:
• Realistic Avatars
• Half-body Avatars
• Character Avatars
• VRM Avatars
Realistic avatars are a great option for making your virtual self instantly recognizable. Half-body avatars, meanwhile, are a fun way to get straight into the action with unique costumes. And character avatars, with their stylized full-body appearance, offer something in between.
But what if you want to use something like an anime character or a 3D model from another platform’s VR avatar maker? A VRM file is the way to go!
In VIVERSE, you can enjoy a custom avatar by importing it in the VRM format.
2. Prepare your VRM avatar for VIVERSE
As exciting as it is to bring a custom VRM avatar into VIVERSE, there are a few things you should check for first to make sure your metaverse experience goes as smoothly as possible.
