  • Av3Emulator

    Emulator for VRChat's Avatars 3.0 system, built on the Unity PlayableGraph API

    Lyuma's AV3 emulator also helps a lot. It's very similar to Gesture Manager.

  • VRC-Gesture-Manager

    A tool that will help you preview and edit your VRChat avatar animation directly in Unity.

    BlackStartx's Gesture Manager is a must for testing your avatar. It recently appeared in the VCC, I noticed.

  • combo-gesture-expressions-av3

    Attach face expressions to hand gestures, and make it react to Avatars 3.0's features, including Contacts, PhysBones and OSC.

    Hai's Combo Gestures make it very easy to make gestures that you can combine using your hands to make face shapes. Depending on how you prefer to use expressions, this could be useful.

  • Thry's Avatar Tools provide some metrics that the VRChat SDK does not provide. They are important metrics, though, and can help make your avatar perform better and not lag other people.

  • cats-blender-plugin

    :smiley_cat: A tool designed to shorten steps needed to import and optimize models into VRChat. Compatible models are: MMD, XNALara, Mixamo, DAZ/Poser, Blender Rigify, Sims 2, Motion Builder, 3DS Max and potentially more

    For Blender, CATS Blender Plugin helps a ton and makes a lot of actions easy. It is a little out of date, though, and only works with Blender 2.93.
