A Collection of ALL MMD Effects [A-H + Links]

For the other parts of this collection, please go here: A Collection of ALL MMD Effects [I-Q + Links] / A Collection of ALL MMD Effects [R-Z + Links]. Please favourite both deviations to receive updates, as the more I add effects in, the more these links will move around



[NOTE: This collection is currently an ongoing project. I aim to update this collection regularly until I have documented every effect, modification and user. If you know of any creators that I haven't listed below (doesn't matter whether they have one effect or thousands), please let me know, even if you're plugging your own effects!]


WELCOME TO THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF MMD EFFECTS!

I am attempting to document every single MMD effect I can find in collections, so that users can easily access a diverse range of effects and know who to credit. I would recommend organising your own effect folder in this way, as you can group updated effects together and keep track of which version belongs to which creator. I make the masterlist, so you don't have to worry! 

I hope to draw attention to some lesser-known effects too. Everyone seems to use the same Beamman and ikeno effects, when there are
others that deserve love too. I hope some of these effects will inspire artwork! <3

These collections are sorted in alphabetical order by producer (according to English translations of names), however many producers are known by several names. If you cannot find a creator here, before messaging me, please use the 'Find' tool as described below, and search for their name. I may have listed them underneath a different name



I want to make the MMDC a better place, especially here on DeviantART. So often I see users leave credits out of their works, so the artists behind other artists never get the recognition they deserve. It happens to me, it happens to us all if you make assets, and effect producers get hit the hardest. Render artists often don't think they need to credit effect producers (and while some say you don't need to, it's only polite right? Not only does it help other render artists find the same materials that you use for their own art, but you promote the users that have helped you make yours). With this long-term project I hope to give all MMD users the knowledge of all effect producers so they can be fully credited and appreciated for some of the hardest work in the MMDC. Did you know that original effect creators often need YEARS worth of experience in C++ to give you the effects you need to make your art look amazing? They deserve all the praise in the world!



HOW TO USE THIS COLLECTION

I have painstakingly typed out EVERY SINGLE EFFECT NAME in these collections, so that if you are searching for a certain effect, you can find it immediately. To do this, please either use CTRL+F or go to 'Find' in the top right settings of your browser. This will allow you to type out the name of the effect, and find the creator and exactly where it comes from <3

I have have not provided information about different versions of the effect just yet because that's gonna take up even more time, but you can see in directories such as ikeno's and Elle's when they've updated the effect, please download the most recent version if you want the newest ^^

I have also given the producer's contact information, which usually comes in the form of twitter. Some are very active, others are not, but if you follow them you may get updates about new effects if they tweet about them

Please favourite and maybe leave a nice comment if you find this collective useful? I spent a lot of time typing this up and I want to know if it isn't a waste of time T_T



PLACES YOU CAN GO TO FIND MMD EFFECTS

DeviantART: Right here! DeviantART is a Western platform, so you will find many effects made from people in the US and Europe here!

Bowlroll: This is a Japanese file-sharing website which you can search tags in order to find assets. Mostly used by Japanese artists, but many Westerners also use it. I use this website as a separation from my dA, and it also gets you recognised by more Japanese artists too!

NicoNico: Kinda like Japanese YouTube, but you can upload images here too! It's a very good place to explore how effects can be used too, as often producers will create an example video of how it can be used

Getuploader: Similar to Bowlroll, except it does not have a search engine. It's similar to MediaFire or SkyDrive, in that individual artists will use it as an archive. You can search through Google however, if you type 'getuploader.com effects'. Producers such as Beamman, ikeno and Elle use this site!

YouTube: YouTube is not very good as a platform for Producers to distribute their effects, as they are video-based only. However, it's a good place to discover new effects, you'll probably just have to download them elsewhere

Twitter: The MMD community is HUGE on Twitter, and it's the best place for Easterners and Westerners to interact. Many producers will tweet out when they have new assets for download, so I recommend following your favourites to get regular updates!


DEFINITIONS

Environment effects- these are effects that affect the environment, such as effects which mimic the weather in real life, such as Rain or ikPostFog.

Lighting effects- these effects directly affect the lighting outside of the ambient lighting. Effects such as PostPointLight and Spotlight provide a different light source from what comes with the engine.

Particle effects- effects which emit particles, some are environmental like KiraKira and Butterfly, while others are best attached to bones such as Particle_EX.

Post-effect- post effects are .x effects that are applied to the fourth wall of the render, similar to how a filter on Instagram works. The effect is applied across the image.

Self-effect- similar to a shader, however self-effects usually apply a new dimension to the model. These may include effects that make the model look like its on fire, lightening or emits sparkles.

Shader- an .fx effect that is applied to a model or accessory. Shaders often give more definition to a model, or apply a texture to a subset.

Shadow effects- these are effects which affect the shadows of the model and environment. Most of these effects will include the word ‘SSAO’ in the name.

Naturally, some Effect Producers will retire from MMD, and may take their effects with them. Can we please put an F in the chat for:

-Meshi 下っ腹P

-T-Ogura 

Thank you guys for producing effects for us, and I wish you the best with your future projects! <3

If an author has decided to take their effects down, it would be disrespectful for me to redistribute them. If you would like me to research some retired authors please let me know, so that we can get some info on if they have gone or not :D

Heres how to fix the HarigneP thingy where u can dl the files! Right click it and click open in new window, copy the link and then paste it in a new tab! it worked for me <3

Leberx44qa's avatar

I dont know if it is ok if I put the nameplate-effect in the dl-file? In my effects-folder is a carpet, if its not ok i will switch it offline.

Chestnutscoop's avatar

Sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean?

Leberx44qa's avatar

I mean that the x-file is for download on my account, although it is edited

Chestnutscoop's avatar

if the effect is edited, this means that it is an effect modification, which is totally ok! Sovoro states that the distribution of their edited effects is fine, so don't worry! <3

The HariganeP Collection seems to have a bug on the site... I click the file I wanna dl but nothing happens... help :<

Chestnutscoop's avatar

Yeah I've heard several reports of this, right clicking the dl file and opening in a new tab usually fixes the problem! ^^

SunnyStronium's avatar

idk if it's just me but after I right click, a new tab does open but closes itself and nothing really happens :<

lotuslemon's avatar

i have the same issue, can someone help? :(

I am getting this error can someone help it's so frustrating :(((

I can't seem to download any of the HariganeP Collection, I don't know if it is the site or my pc...:crying: rvmp

Omg I love you so much, thank you!

dynosuar's avatar

can someone do a video show casing all of the effects on this list? I'd like to preview these in action before downloading them.

Chestnutscoop's avatar

I'm actually working on a project to do this! It's the MikuMikuEffect Archive, and you can find out about it here:

How can I download……

May I have the effect names that used in this video?

QueenKitsune77's avatar

The main shader effect it's Raycast, probably in toon version. Other post effects like IkOverray or IkCluts can be aplied if you want.

Well, I downloaded all Beamman effects from his skydrive/onedrive account (Thank you for that information).

589 MB, 35 minutes.

That collection is not complete or up-to-date though. That account is several years old.

All of Beamman's effects are generously licensed as free to redistribute. I don't really see how I could help MMDers to get his effects in a time-saving way though.(?)

QueenOfFujoshis's avatar

I'm new to mmd, and I'm having a bit of a problem with applying these effects in my mmd. When I try to put an effect in my mmd it doesn't load or it puts a clear bar on the floor if that makes sense.

A common issue with MME effects is that the entire file path must be entirely ascii letters. Some, not all, MME effects have Japanese file and/or folder names, in which case you need to spend time renaming files and folders.

Chestnutscoop's avatar

Is the MMEffect tab activated in the top right corner? It sounds like MME isn't working properly

QueenOfFujoshis's avatar

It is but It wont load the effects properly I think I'm doing something wrong. Right now I'm specifically trying to do the water effect but nothing happens when i do it.
