Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 30, 2017
Morph 3D, creator of the leading avatar platform and character management system for virtual, augmented and other mixed realities, today announced its partnership with VRChat. VRChat will use Morph 3D’s Ready Room platform to allow its users to easily create unique and personalized avatars for their virtual identities. VRChat joins the fast-growing group of networks employing Morph 3D’s platform to enable users to maintain their identities in a persistent way across multiple VR environments.
“We are big fans of what VRChat is doing to revolutionize social VR, and are thrilled to help their users express themselves,” said James Thornton, CEO of Morph 3D. “At the heart of social VR is the ability for us to communicate and enjoy shared virtual experiences with people all over the world. The starting point of this experience is being able to create a virtual identity that best reflects who you are, just as you do in your day-to-day life.”
Previously, creating a personalized avatar wasn’t an option for those without advanced 3D skills. As social VR continues to evolve, Morph 3D expects that users will want to represent themselves with more personalized avatars and will need easily accessible tools and content to do so. Morph 3D’s Ready Room integration with VRChat lowers the barrier of entry for their users to create and manage their virtual identity.
“As one of the leading platforms in social VR, we are very selective in identifying partners that align with our vision,” said Graham Gaylor, Founder and CEO of VRChat. “Our avatar system is state of the art, featuring dynamic lip sync, eyes that track, hand gestures, full-body IK and speech that uses spatial audio. Morph 3D was a natural fit from the beginning because they take full advantage of these systems. We love that their tools and content offer our users an unmatched level of avatar personalization.”
Morph 3D avatars are used widely in a variety of virtual, augmented, and gaming platforms and are available at http://www.morph3d.com and at http://www.unity3d.com. Morph 3D’s Ready Room will be supported by tens of thousands of dynamic, high-quality assets sourced from among the best 3D artists in the world. This offers developers a way to provide their users with an unprecedented level of personal expression.
