How To Retexture Vrchat Avatar

To retexture a VRChat avatar, you will need to use a 3D modeling software like Blender or Unity. Here are the basic steps involved:

  1. Import the avatar model into the software.
  2. Unwrap the UVs of the model. This will make it possible to paint the textures onto the model.
  3. Create or import the textures that you want to use.
  4. Paint the textures onto the model.
  5. Export the retextured model.

Here are some additional details about each step:

  • Importing the avatar model: You can usually find the avatar model in a .fbx file format. To import the model into Blender, go to File > Import > FBX. In Unity, go to Assets > Import Package > Custom Assets and select the .fbx file.
  • Unwrapping the UVs: UV unwrapping is the process of flattening the 3D model onto a 2D plane. This makes it possible to paint the textures onto the model. To unwrap the UVs in Blender, go to Object > UV Editing > Unwrap. In Unity, go to Window > UV Editor.
  • Creating or importing the textures: You can create your own textures or import them from a third-party source. If you are creating your own textures, you can use a software like Photoshop or GIMP.
  • Painting the textures onto the model: Once the UVs are unwrapped, you can paint the textures onto the model. In Blender, you can use the Paint Texture tool. In Unity, you can use the Material Inspector.
  • Exporting the retextured model: Once you are satisfied with the retextured model, you can export it. In Blender, go to File > Export > FBX. In Unity, go to File > Export Package and select the FBX format.

Here are some additional tips for retexturing VRChat avatars:

  • Use high-quality textures. The higher the quality of the textures, the better the retextured avatar will look.
  • Use a consistent style. When choosing textures, try to use textures that have a consistent style. This will help the retextured avatar look more cohesive.
  • Be careful with transparency. If you are using textures with transparency, make sure to set the alpha channel correctly. Otherwise, the retextured avatar may look strange.
