=Setting Up LIV Avatars=
<br>
This guide is for setting up your LIV Avatars, and capturing yourself as your favorite character in any of the games that LIV supports.<br>
<br>
Setup consists of:
* Downloading your avatars
* Creating a camera profile
* Launching a game
<br>
<br>
To use LIV Avatars, you don't need any additional software besides your VR Headset and a capable PC. That means you can use it without a camera, capture card and green screen!
==Downloading Avatars==
<br>
We currently support the Beat Saber Mod avatars from Modelsaber.com, and are working on integrating support for VRM (you can find [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjiKBjc70kM&list=PLEYkzekv2dXpaA_Iamk5vFvKSUtlG3MMW&index=2 a guide to make VRM work] with LIV here for now, make sure you enable subtitles).<br>
<br>
Head over to '''Modelsaber.com''' and find the '''Avatars tab'''.<br>
<br>
Download the avatars that you like -- make sure you remember where you’ve saved them!<br>
<br>
==Creating a Camera Profile==
<br>
Go to Camera and press the “Add” button
<br>
[[File:Add Avatar Camera.png|frameless]]
<br>
<br>
In the Edit Camera window that pops up, select “Avatar” as your Camera Type and hit Save!
<br>
[[File:Select Avatar Camera.png|frameless]]
<br>
<br>
Now go to the folder where you saved your Avatars, and drag & drop them into the VIVR window.
<br>
[[File:Drag Avatar files into VIVR window.png|frameless]]
<br>
<br>
That’s it for camera setup!
<br>
 
==Launching a game==
<br>
This step is really straight forward. Go to Capture in LIV, select your game from the dropdown, and hit Sync & Launch.<br>
<br>
To see your output, switch to the LIV Client Output window!
<br>
[[File:Pick your Game.png|frameless]]
<br>
<br>
Make sure you check if we show you any “Quirks” when you select your game, and make sure you check the #supported-games-list [http://liv.chat on Discord] for any quirks that the game may have in order to run well with LIV!<br>
<br>
For example: Oculus users will often need to put “-vrmode openvr” in the games launch settings for them to work with LIV!<br>

=Setting Up LIV Mixed Reality=
Restart SteamVR and power on your controllers.<br>
<br>
Relaunch LIV and launch the compositor. SteamVR should show you your new LIV Virtual Camera Drivers. They will be gray until you launch LIV and the compositor turn on your controllers -- this is intended! <br><br>
