A downloadable tool for Windows

PNG2br is a lightweight tool for puppeteering simple pngtubers. I made it because I couldn't find an existing tool that met the following requirements:

  • Must be a standalone, native executable.
  • Must run well on my machines, including low- and mid-spec laptops.
  • Must have a reasonable footprint in both size and resource use.
  • No DRM, no tedious Terms of Use or EULA, and no association with Unity Technologies Inc.

Feature Overview

  • Dead simple interface.
  • Avatars use a simple text-based format.
  • Up to 10 (conveniently accessible) avatar states.
  • 7 configurable effects to apply to states, such as squash and stretch, flashing color, etc.



PNG2br is available for Intel/AMD 64-bit Windows only. When time allows, I will upload x86 and arm64 builds, and put together a macOS build if there is sufficient demand for one. No "official" Linux builds are planned, but I may open-source the project.

Planned Features

  • A config file specifying a startup avatar, background color,  window size, etc.
  • Better accessibility: A fully visual editor for avatars.
  • Maybe: Virtual camera output.
  • Maybe: Support for external control from e.g. a Stream Deck.
  • Maybe: Foreground and background "props."
  • If there is something specific you would like to see in a future version, let me know in the forum! I will consider user requests when prioritizing work.

Install instructions

Download the archive and unzip it. Then run the program. That's it! (Except for the part where Windows "protects your PC" and you have to click "More Info" and then "Run Anyway")
