Disclaimer: This app is an indie production and is not developed by Live2D Inc., but is officially licensed to use the Live2D Cubism SDK.
VTube Studio is an app available for iPhone/macOS, Android and Windows. The app uses your smartphone to track your face and animate a Live2D Cubism Model accordingly. The model is shown directly on your phone or on your PC by streaming the face-tracking data over your local network from your phone to your PC/Mac.
From there, you can use OBS or any other streaming software to create videos and livestreams using your Virtual YouTuber Live2D avatar. Interested? Here’s a small preview:
You need a smartphone (iPhone or Android) and a PC (if you want to stream on PC). Supported smartphones:
The app is free to try out, so just download it and see if it works on your phone! If you like it, you can buy the PRO version to remove the watermark from the app and enable unlimited face streaming!
Download the app for your smartphone and PC/Mac. When there’s an update, always remember to download the newest version for both PC/Mac and your smartphone.
Feel free to play around a bit by yourself! When you’re ready to get serious, check out the documentation:
The VTube Studio apps (macOS/Windows and iOS/Android) do not collect ANY user information. No user data, models, images, videos or face-tracking data created/streamed in the app are shared anywhere.
The Live2D models included in the app (with the exception of “Akari”) belong to Live2D Inc., please respect the “Agreement for Free Material”. The Akari model was drawn and modeled by Denchi. You may use this model freely, but not for commercial purposes unless you have explicit permission to do so.
If you would like to use the VTube Studio logo and other branding in your videos, please do not modify them. You can get them on the branding-page.
You are not allowed to use the free version of VTube Studio for commercial purposes. As an individual or small Company/VTuber Agency, please buy a license (“PRO version” per in-app purchase on Android/iOS) if you plan to use the app commercially (monetized YouTube videos, superchats).
If you are a bigger company looking to utilize VTube Studio (ads, TV, etc.), please contact us directly. We offer different licensing terms for companies looking to utilize VTube Studio (ads, TV, etc.), so please contact us directly.
Details are also available in our end-user license agreement (EULA).
VTube Studio uses various open-source projects. A complete list of used software and their respective licenses can be found here.
A huge Thank You to the people helping me with some of the feature planning: Brian Tsui and Soy from Iron Vertex, a Live2D Guild that does absolutely amazing Live2D commission work. I regularly work closely with them and if you want a professional, highest-quality Live2D model, I’ll unequivocally recommend them anytime.
And also Thank You to the people always helping out with supporting new users in my Discord server, in particular Anthem, Hinoguchi Sorako, ARS Yoshino, but also many others.
