Virtual reality is on the rise, with thousands of new people joining every day. Virtual reality is an amazing technology that allows one to feel like they are truly in another world.
VRchat has made this possible by creating a virtual social space where you can go about your days interacting with friendly players all over the world. VRchat has its own special charm to it, and has even been featured on big name news sites such as the Wall Street Journal.
What is VRchat?
For those of you who have not heard about Virtual Reality chat before, it is a social platform where strangers from all over the world can meet up and play games together, dance with one another, or even set out on epic quests!
In VRchat you are able to make your own custom character.
This means that you get to choose the shape, size, and color of your character. In this article we will explain how to make a basic custom character step by step using breath of the wild as an example.
How to Create a Model For VRchat
- Get a Screen Shot from the Game You Want to Make Your Character from.
It is important that you have this screen shot as it will be used as a template for your avatar.
The first step would be go into the game and get the screen shot that you want to use.
- Get a Pop-Up Screen Shot From the Game You are Using as Your Template.
Once you have finished making your character it is time to take another screenshot, this next one will be used to make the actual character in VRchat.
Instead of taking a normal screenshot while playing Breath of the Wild, you want to bring up the menu screen so that Link is surrounded by blue squares, this will make it easier to cut him out.
For this example we are going to use Zelda Breath of The Wild again. To get the pop-up screen, you first want to go into the game and find Link. From there you will pull up the menu options (the button on the far right) and take your screenshot.
- Find Out Where You Saved Your Screenshot & Open it in Your Computer.
Once you have finished taking your screenshot and saved it, go to where you saved it and open the photo in your computer.
Crop Out Your Character From The Screenshot Using a Picture Editing Software (Such as Photoshop).
Now that you’ve taken both screenshots and opened them in photoshop, we can begin cutting out the character.
Customizing Your Character is The Best Part About VRchat!
Now, what you want to do with your photo editing software is cut out the head from the rest of the image.
This can be done by using the pen tool, clicking on a point that you wish to begin cutting from and then holding shift while using it to cut out an area.
Once you have finished getting your character’s body all edited in photoshop, move over to a different tab in whatever program you are using and crop out just the face from the screenshot so that you can paste it on your body.
Playing Games on VRchat
Once you have finished cutting out your character, its time to play games on VRchat.
Open up the game and go into the lobby area, then press create character located at the bottom of the screen next to where you are standing.
Once you are past this part, all that is left is for you to play around in the game and make friends!
