We will be helping you out on how to become a vtuber. We have provided some basic requirements to need to fulfill before going ahead. From camera to avatar we have covered everything. So, without wasting your time, let’s start.
How To Become A VTuber?
If you are planning to become a Vtuber, then you first need to fulfill the following requirements before you can get started. Here is a complete guide on how to become a VTuber.
The first thing you need is a Camera. This camera can be your laptop’s built-in camera. We recommend using an HD camera for high-quality videos and photos. You can also use an external webcam for better results.
External Motion Tracking Camera
You can also use external motion-tracking cameras for better results. This camera will help your avatar reach more naturally with your actions. As you speak and react, the avatar will do the same.
Computer Or Laptop
You need a high-end laptop or computer to make your avatar for vtube. This can be done using different software. This software runs on high-configuration PCs. Here are the system requirements for the same.
- Powerful laptop or a PC
- RAM 8GB minimum
- Graphics Card 2GB minimum
- Hard drive SSD recommended
- Processor i5 or i7 or higher
Just like YouTubers, vtubers also require high internet speed. In fact, vtubers need more stable internet as compared to common YouTubers. This is because of the fact that vtubers are rendering the avatars in real-time. They have to make avatars to perform their actions and expressions.
It is an important factor that most of the vtubers neglect. But, it is an important factor to consider. It is because the better the vision in the camera the better will your avatar perform. You can use a simple flashlight as well if you feel the requirement.
This is important for both vtubers and YouTubers. Your audio quality should be good and clear for a better understanding of the audience. If your audio quality is not good, then your viewers won’t understand it and it will ultimately result in loss.
It is more or less an optional requirement. If you have a green screen behind you it will just increase your video quality. However, it is not necessary as the latest cameras have built-in AI to solve the quality issues.
