The avatar tab lets you choose your bot's avatar. An avatar is the physical representation of your bot, and can include images, video, audio, and animation. You can choose an avatar from our open avatar directory, or create your own.
You can create your own avatar from the browse avatars page. To create an avatar, just give it a name, description, and category to categorize it under. You can either make the avatar private and choose who can access it, or make it public and accessible by anyone. You can also choose what license you wish to release its content under.

The avatar editor allows you to upload or import images, video, and audio files for your avatar, and tag them with emotions, actions, and poses. You can add as many images, videos, or audio as you want, and they will be randomly selected if not tagged. If tagged, they will only be used when the bot expresses the tagged emotion, action, or pose. You should have at least a 'talking' pose tagged, this will be displayed when the bot is talking.
To edit the avatar, click on the Editor button. The avatar editor lets you import video, audio, and image files. You can associate each media with an emotion, action, or pose. For example if you have a video that makes the avatar talk, you would associate the pose for the video to talking. The emotions let the avatar express different emotions, and will let the bot using the avatar express itself. There are a fixed set of emotions, but you can create any actions and poses that you wish. You can have multiple media for a emotions, action, or pose, and one will be chosen at random. For actions, and poses, you can have an audio element in addition to a video element. Audio can be used to make your avatar perform actions such as laugh, or used as background music or noise for a pose.
