Weekly Thoughts July 18

So I may have missed a week or two for my Weekly Thoughts posts. I’ve actually been relatively busy.

I’ve seen a big trend lately in vtubing. For those that don’t know that is streaming but with an avatar instead of a camera on you. This is something that I started looking into a little while back before I noticed a big trend in it. I was discouraged at first by all of the expensive equipment needed to do it.

After some time I’ve seen some people that I know of start using an avatar, and I’ve done a little more research into it. It is actually possible to do the avatar thing without a bunch of expensive hardware and software. The only thing is movements (from what I’ve seen so far) are restricted to just your head.

I seem to have gone a different route though. I discovered a site where you can animate an avatar. With this I can, in theory, piece together different animations and make a video out of that. This I plan on using to add some flare to my stream.

Speaking about my stream, I am returning back to streaming full time this week. I have had a few days over the past couple weeks where I have been testing the waters on my current 2 computer setup. It hasn’t exactly been ideal, but I’m eager to get back into it so I’m going to make do the best I can.
