    So, I download an avatar from the Unity assets store, make sure he's centered and VRChat compatible, and upload him to VRChat. In-game, he looks fine in the avatar menu, but when I equip the avatar, all the color is replaced with black. How do I keep the colors? Is it a lighting issue?

    I have this issue with a 2D avatar!

    It turns black when imported into VRCHat via Unity. Looks fine in unity, then it is a black image in game.

    Anyone know what I might be doing wrong?!??

    Was any cause for this discovered, as I'm running into the same problem in 2020? The looks fine even during the preview in VRChat, but as soon as I change into it the avatar is a black silhouette.

    Try a different shader, or edit the existing shader to change the Fallback "Diffuse" line to Fallback "Standard" maybe?
