-----------------------------------------

So this is an effect I wanted to create myself using a mod of Hologram, however Yuika got there before me with their NEXT effect... 9 years before me -_-

BUT they've done an excellent job at creating this effect, even though they call themselves an amateur!

----------------------------------------

Just a quick breakdown of this effect, it creates a glow based around a single object, such as a model or accessory. You can make each subset glow a specific colour, or all one colour. You can also edit the size and transparancy of the overall glow by editing the accessory manipulation parameters, more details in my readme

This effect contains two types of NEXT mod, AL and BL. AL stands for Ambient Light (bottom row) and makes the entire model glow like a filter. BL means Back Lighting (top row), and only makes the background around the model glow. Both effects work in the same way,
however.

Please read all the readmes in the folder, as all of them have useful tips in how to use this effect, they have all been translated into English. Sovoro's readme for ObjectLuminous is very interesting and I learnt a lot of new stuff I had no idea you could do with it, so I strongly recommend you check that out :3

This will be part of a series of NEXT mods, with NEXT_dark and NEXT_pastel coming next week!

[EDIT 24/07/2020: You can now download NEXT_pastel here: MMD/MME NEXT_pastel (AL and BL Effects) + Download]


Model: YYB 10th Anniversary Len

If you would like to request an effect, please contact me through the comments of this video, my DMs, or through my Twitter! :D

Heyyy, awesome effect! Having trouble applying it tho, been using MMD for less than a week so I still get lost on how to properly add stuff like this. Steps I took when trying to get this working: Opened new/empty mmd project, changed background to black, loaded a model, got ObjectLuminous.x loaded into accessories, aaand then tried applying OL_Selector_NEXT_solidALBlue.fx as a test to the OL_EmitterRT tab, but yeah I barely get any glow. I'm guessing I missed a step? This is what I got so far: https://i.imgur.com/gxY7j9K.png

Can't find anything in the readmes to fix this though, help x3 I have Raycast set up if I need that for some reason.

I have this problem when I try to use NEXT too! The only thing I've found that fixes it so far is to turn off Self Shadow on the model targeted, kinda annoying but I usually just replace the shadow with ExcellentShadow2 ^^

Hmmm well I'd have ExcellentShadow ready too, but that self shadow thing didn't seem to work, unless I did it wrong haha. Anyway, after some experimenting I noticed that the effect works on some of my models but not on some others? Screenshot again, with some Digimon and Goku https://i.imgur.com/dTWkKX0.png

So It seeeems like my initial problem was only with the specific model. Any tips? Hah x3

edit: uh probably obvious but just to clarify: all three have the same .fx set up in a similiar way.

Ooo this is amazing! Do you think I could split the colors though? Example one side red, other side blue?

Yes you can do this! However, youre gonna need to split your model in half in PMXe ^^

that reminds me, I still have some effect edits I need to post. but writing the readmes and setting them up for download can take so long T-T

Aww you're too kind! And ikr? Literally sometimes the readme takes longer to write than modding the effect because you have to remember to include so much and make sure it all makes sense 😖
