One of the most unique aspects of IMVU is our Creator Community. Rather than a platform being limited by what we can think of, we provide an open environment in which anyone can choose to expand the limits and develop new ways to provide users products for self-expression, and environments and experiences that catalyze connection and friendship.
● Creator Program
The IMVU Creator Program offers a way to extend your IMVU experience – to customize and create the products, rooms, and more that users can take advantage of. Joining the program makes you one of the few that are helping expand the IMVU experience just like our own platform teams.
Our Creator program also welcomes creators to participate at any level. Some creators are 2D artists used to painting and drawing traditionally. They can choose to derive from existing 3D objects in our catalog of more than 40 million, and change colors, add custom graphics, and more. It doesn’t take a ton of work to create a custom version of “mesh” that was created by another Creator. Use it for yourself or if you decide to sell it, everyone gets a piece of the sale. More advanced Creators can create 3D objects in digital tools they already use and add them into the IMVU Catalog.
Join the Creator program if you want to expand on what you’re already doing on IMVU, or if you fancy yourself an artist and want to try your hand at designing your own fashions, or creating great rooms, or spaces that can inspire others to hang out and explore! Ultimately, Creators can create an unlimited amount of products to share or sell, and create community around their creations. Our users get to know you, become fans and before you know it your digital business has started and is thriving.
So, whether you are interested in customizing a few things for your avatar to wear, creating your own products to sell or even conceiving of a whole chat-room experience yourself that you can invite your friends to – it’s an amazing next step to become an IMVU Creator!
● Start Creating Program
Once you’ve joined the Creator Program, the easiest way to get started, is to follow our Start Creating Program. This simple starter-guide walks you through 3 simple tasks of creating your first items on IMVU.
Each step highlights a single video to watch and tutorial specially-created for first time Creators. These are easy to follow along and you’ll be creating on IMVU in no time. Even better, at the end of each step, when you submit each creation to us and fill out a simple form, you’ll be considered for our Graduation Prize of free VIP membership for 2 months!
● Helpful Resources for Creators
Visit the Creator Education Center to find many helpful tutorials for new and experienced creators.
To ensure the IMVU experience is fun for everyone, we have specific guidelines (Virtual Goods Policy) on what content is acceptable in the catalog. Therefore, it is very important that every Creator reads this policy.
