Detailed Setup guide

0️ Check Compatibility

1️ Setup Hardware

Follow the link to the hardware page for your headset or face-tracking hardware in the supported hardware table above.

2️ Installing VRCFaceTracking

IF AND ONLY IF YOU ARE NOT USING A QUEST PRO: download the v4.0 UI version of VRCFaceTracking from Github releases:

Each hardware page should also direct you to the corresponding module(s) to use, if required.

3️ Enable OSC In VRChat

To be able to use VRCFT, the OSC feature must be enabled in VRChat. VRCFaceTracking will automatically set the game's OSC toggle setting to "Enabled" if it detects that it was not already, but you can (and should) enable it manually to avoid having to restart the game for the automatic switch to take effect.

Don't know how to enable OSC?
  1. Open the in-game radial menu
  2. Navigate through "Options" ➡️ "OSC"
  3. Ensure that the "OSC Enabled" option is toggled on (white box towards the right)

4️ Test with a Public VRCFT Avatar

Visit some of the worlds listed in the pinned posts in the #avatar-showoff channel in the Discord to try out a few face tracking avatars.

Avatar Compatibility

At this time, VRChat does not have a native face tracking solution. Avatars must have been specifically set up for face tracking to work with VRCFaceTracking.

Avatar Setup

If you have a working hardware and software setup, or only want to get started with setting up avatars for using with VRCFaceTracking, you should follow Avatar Getting Started
