The cheapest way to become a VTuber on mac (100% Free)

*If you do not own a Windows machine (which I highly recommend you do for this project) access FaceVtuber.com, a software similar to Windows’s face-tracking avatar, Live2D

Follow the instructions below to have an easy experience Vtubing on the mac:

1. Find your MMD or VRM

(MikuMikuDance (MMD) is a 3DCG software that manipulates 3D models.)

There are free accessible MMD models online, another option would be to create one yourself. Free MMD Models (If the students are under the age of 13 regulate what avatar they use—the websites are not for younger viewers and may be inappropriate) : 

Place to find MMD

I use VRM models. Commonly used amongst Vtubers and for virtual reality headsets.

*Caution, there are sometimes inappropriate models for the students under 13. Be mindful to find the best model for you to VTube.

2. Create your own 3D models

You can also create your own 3D avatars with the software below.
