08/05/14 - Added PacP's video translated by ryukendo123
Please note that this tutorial is made by audiencefromspace as of 12/29/12 specifically designed for the 3D animation program MikuMikuDance and not any other animation programs. MikuMikuMoving has similarities with MMD but due to some changes with that it would be better to assume that this won't work with it. I made this with very limited knowledge I accumulated from my experience and other tutorials as well as NO PROPER SCHOOLING (Yes you can do it without going to any animation schools). I tested these theories myself over and over to ensure credibility. This will also assume that you at least know the basic functions of MMD, otherwise go watch the video in VPVP site again.
Terminologies marked with ASTERISKS are terms I just made-up to make them easy to remember
ex. Normal curve**

Frame Zero Dilemma
First take a look at this screenshot (Screenshots are clickable for zoom)
One of the biggest problem in creating continuous loop is that frame zero has keyframes in all of the bones. That's understandable because there's no preceding frames. Cont
Racing Miku Hair WIPI think I have the technique down for awesome hair. The only thing is converting 2d to 3d. Its sometimes hard because the artist that did the 2d image made it look excelent from that single angle while I have to make it look good from any angle or at least most. So finding the lines and curves for natural anime hair is not easy!Racing Miku Hair WIP2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I build hair I start with a poly plane with 2-3 edge loops running vertical that can later be pulled out to turn a flat paper looking hair strand to something curved that has shape. I set it about where the middle of the forehead is and extrude that plane down a bunch of times to match the image reference behind. I bend the strip of polys I extruded so it resembles the hair shape in the image then merge the verts at the tips to give it that spike look. I do the entire bangs or front hair area. Merge every hair strand together where they touch each other at the tops then extrude the entire group up to the top of the head.
Later I'll append new poly's on the

To download there is some things to know about:
1 There is two downloads, one will register for some Mac users and the other will not. Check both.
2If a blue screen appears on your's DOWNLOAD THE OTHER ONE This means your computer cant register that one. If they are both blue it means your Mac is outdated. Check to see if the one you want to download will register your Mac model.

MMD is artThis has been weighing on my mind for a little while. I see time and time again, people (non MMDers obviously) who bash others who use MMD saying that it is not art and it is "illegal" because it uses someone else's work.MMD is art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First I would like to address the incorrect notion that it is illegal:
The modelers give the users permission to use their model by making it available for public download. Therefore, it is indeed legal as long as credit is given where credit is due and the terms and conditions of usage are being properly followed.
Secondly, MMD (MikuMikuDance for those of you who aren't familiar with the term, is a 3D posing and rendering freeware that involves usage of 3D models) is art. People put their time and energy into creating beautiful pictures and videos using MMD.
I myself have spent a whole day on one video just making sure that it was perfect and I know others who have done the same as I have. Also, art is a form of expression. MMD is a program that people use to express
BRS Hair rough completeSo when I say the rough is done I mean. I still have to cap the back of the hair and connect her bangs up to her head. Its only a few hours of work and usually I save it for the end anyways because its real hard to work with after I do that step.BRS Hair rough complete2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm pretty happy with the hair. Its actually pretty low poly and the reason for that is because of the weapons that I want to be part of her main file. These screens unfortunately don't do her justice, she is impressive in 3d. Coming from the author of this model and how artist usually hate their own work I'm pretty satisfied with the hair. Will be interesting to see it textured.
Also in case you get bored and don't make it to the bottom I'll say this here. I'm considering the idea of opening commission for accessories only. As in "parts". Compensation would be effected by difficulty/time.
Also I remember talking about ibrs sorta getting a update. I wanted to try out a mockup to sorta see how it would look. I think it will work and the nice th

Senmei World updateHerro So I've been working away on and off on Senmei's environment. I decided now is a good point to halt modeling and texture some. Considering its a city it will take lots of unique textures. I've been asked to give it the hand painted look like the Nanoko stage so to make that happen I have to paint them all. This can be time consuming since its a bit like illustrating everything from bricks, to windows to water.Senmei World update7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Btw so far I have 10 brick textures thanks to the elaborate brick work next to the convention center. >< In totally I think I've painted 20-25 textures and I think it could require around 80 to complete. I'm trying to keep them small and prioritize them depending how close they are to the center of the stage for optimization. Otherwise the stage will kill computers since MMD doesn't support mip mapping.
After texturing I may or may not add a bit more. It all comes down to how burnt out I am and how finished I think it is. Already there is a lot and I'd like to g

Hey guys! Since this is a project I'm actually doing each month from now on, I figured I should give out a little more information about it since I didn't really describe it well enough before! So please read the following at your own leisure:
What is the UTAU Feature?
The UTAU Feature is when I take an UTAUloid suggested by either their owner or someone that knows them and cover a song with them each month! With this it gives the UTAU a little more recognition if they aren't known within the community! My aim isn't to make everyone MEGA popular, it's more or less to give everyone an equal chance to have their UTAUloids used! After all, this is a vast community and it's always difficult to start out with no one knowing you, even the best UTAUloid users have been there once! I'm not popular

11. It's anti-climatic: Just because Rarity may lose her feelings for Prince Blueblood does not mean that she'll instantly fall for Spike. I find it quite odd that Rarity would suddenly love a baby dragon just like that o.0?

VERY IMPORTANT! READ!As you guys noticed, me and a couple ppl have been ripping project Diva models recently.VERY IMPORTANT! READ!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, today I got this note from this "y2kk2y".
Yes, we do use JPCSP, but did you know it doesn't come in a T pose and you get alot of work to set up materials?
I'll put a sample up soon, and you will understand that ripping the way we do is NOT an easy thing, and you should respect our work on it.
JPCSP can Rip the whole scene, with stages and stuff, so, even if you found your way, you'd have to work really hard to set everything up.
Before you start bashing us, you should try ripping them yourself and see the hard work it is.
Also, the reason why I don't rip DT anymore AND don't distribute PD models its that I don't want them to be edited because IT IS FUCKING UGLY. The PD and DT models are not made to be edited, you have MAMAMA for it. And it gets me really mad when I see the cheap edits most ppl in MMD community do.
Please respect our oppinion for not telling you guys how stuff works. And be care
BRS Stage wipI don't want to spend more then 2 days on this because this is supposed to be filler between characters. So far its looking promising but the texture maps are kinda huge and will probably bring 50% of your pc's to a craw.. I guess I could reduce them in the end.. I ended up sculpting 5 unique modular rock structures. A inner stage and a outer stage ring for at least a little optimization. I plan on making all the cracks glow. I'll make separate special geometry for the luminious shader like ibrs's gunblade. I already did the cracks closest to the dance floor area. I'll also add light rays coming out of the cracks and considering light maps.BRS Stage wip2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The scene is up to 130,000 tri's which sounds like a lot but i've seen the xbox do 2 million before and that's a pretty old video card. Its just the 4k textures I worry about :T
