Try Me! for UE Blueprint

Create an avatar and add it to a demo level in a Blueprint project in Unreal Engine.
Take about 20 minutes to create an avatar, download the SDK for UE, and import your avatar into a provided demo level.

What you need

  • Make sure you have UE 4.25, 4.26, or 4.27 or UE 5 available.
  • You need an avatar URL. If you don't have an avatar and an avatar URL, create one now at Try Me! Create an Avatar.
We recommend you try the SDK with a C++ project or a Blueprint project that you've converted to C++. The Blueprint only version of the plugin is much larger as it includes all the generated binaries and other files.
