MMD to Blender 2.79 Tutorial by crazy4anime09 MMD to Blender 2.79 Tutorial by crazy4anime09
Read all comments in all the MMD in Blender tutorials I've made to see if your question has been answered before you ask ^^
Also, check out our group :iconmmd2blender-mmdart: There are other MMD in Blender tutorials there as well as art :D


I decided to make an updated version of my MMD to Blender Tutorial because there have been a lot of changes made to the MMD Tools addon since my last tutorial. It still has the same info as the previous one but it's all updated. I did add a little more info based on some questions people had asked me. This tutorial uses Blender 2.79 (Will work in previous versions of Blender) and the latest version of MMD Tools addon. The addon gets updated frequently ^^


Hopefully you will find this helpful. If you have any questions feel free to ask :D (Big Grin) Even though I've been using Blender for a while now I'm still a noob and don't know how to do a lot yet. I do have more knowledge now than I did when I made my first tutorial, but I may not be able to help if you have a question I don't know the answer to. I'll try to help if I can though ^^


This is something I didn't put in the tutorial but I thought I would mention it here. Some MMD models may not work in Blender. If you can't get a model to work in Blender then you'll have to find another model to use instead.

I don't know how to export models from Blender to MMD/PMD/PMX, but I found two tutorials by noodle boy on Youtube that may help. Read the descriptions and comments under the videos, and turn on captions for info on what they are doing in the videos ^^

When I export the edited model (as PMX using the plugin) and try to open it in MMD it doesn't work at all. Opening it in MMD only loads up a single bone, so I dunno what went wrong.

I don't know how to correctly export a model back to MMD after it's been edited in Blender, but you could try asking :iconhogarth-mmd: or :iconblenderenderer: They might know how to export models correctly ^^

You would need to upload the .blend file for me if you want help.
If you are converting a model to MMD from other software, mmd_tools powroupi fork) has a "Convert Model" button.
Be sure that you are using the powroupi fork of mmd_tools.

How do I fix this issue? My model imports with the feet up even though they're flat in  PMX.

Do you have any tutorials for exporting a blend file to pmx or pmd? I tried to export a camaro model via the mmd tools which shows up as you stated in the tut. But when I press the export button nothing happens and the Camaro.pmx file is not created. 

Any tips? I can do a screenshot or vid of what happens if it helps.

Thanks

I don't know how to export blend files to pmx or pmd correctly, but I did find a Youtube video that might help ^^

Or you could try looking through the issues for mmd_tools here to see if someone else had issues with exporting github.com/powroupi/blender_mm… and if not you could create a new issue to ask powroupi about it ^^

Is there a tutorial on converting FBX to MMD?
Reply
:iconcrazy4anime09:
crazy4anime09 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not sure how to do it myself but this tutorial might help www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP5I2y… it shows how to import FBX to Blender. If FBX doesn't show up under File, Import, go to User Preferences and search for FBX to turn the addon on. Then after you do that you can export it to MMD using MMD Tools. I don't know how well it works though. You can look at the issues that people have brought up to powroupi here github.com/powroupi/blender_mm… or you can make you own ^^

If you can't get it to export still you can try this method instead www.youtube.com/watch?v=apNLL9… It shows you how to export to Direct X and import the .X file to MMD. Turn on the captions because they explain what they are doing in more detail ^^

Did you copy the right folder to put in the addons folder? You want the mmd_tools folder not blender_mmd_tools-dev_test folder. If you did, then double check that it didn't get put in another folder by mistake. If you are updating the mmd_tools folder make sure you delete the old one first.

Also, in Blender's User Preferences make sure Official and Community are both selected under where it says Supported Level. The addon shows up in Community.

If you did all of that and it still doesn't show up try downloading the MMD Tools addon again from the website, or uninstall Blender and reinstall it, or update Blender to 2.79, if you haven't yet ^^

crazy4anime09 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Did it crash when you imported or when you tried to convert the materials to cycles? Blender will crash sometimes when you try to convert the materials of a model to cycles and it might crash sometimes when you try to import something. Just keep trying until it works. If it doesn't work you might not be able to use that model in Blender ^^

Ok, if it only happens with one model it might be an issue with that model. If it happens with multiple it could be a problem with MMD Tools addon or with Blender. I'm not sure if there is a way to fix it or not so that you can import that model. You could always try re-downloading MMD Tools addon or Blender to see if that helps ^^

It should be in your program files on your computer. Did you download the installer when you downloaded Blender or the .zip file? If you downloaded the .zip one it has the folders set up differently. I always download the installer it will have the Blender Foundation folder ^^

www.blender.org/download/ You'll want to hit the green button that one should automatically be the installer but if not click on other versions underneath the button and you can choose the installer for you computer there. For my computer I always install the Windows 64 bit Installer ^^

Are you using the latest version of MMD Tools addon? I used to have this problem until I updated it. Here is the link to powroupi's latest version of the addon github.com/powroupi/blender_mm…

If you have the latest version and you are still getting the error you may have to contact powroupi about it by going here github.com/powroupi/blender_mm… You'll have to make an account to add a new issue though ^^

Is there a way to have the MMD models affected by 'Sun's? They don't seem to have shadows (Atleast, in internal render, shadows work fine in Cycles)
Reply
:iconcrazy4anime09:
crazy4anime09 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't use Blender's Internal Render because I could never figure out how to make the lighting look good so I went straight to Cycles, but the model should have shadows when a light hits it in Internal Render. In the Viewport Properties under MMD Shading you want to use the GLSL Shading for the model to have shadows. If you use Shadeless the model won't have any shadows. If you are using GLSL Shading and the model still isn't casting any shadows make sure you have Ray Shadow selected in the lamp settings ^^

This tutorial might help, he explains what the lamp settings are and how to fake global illumination in Blender's Internal Render Engine www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRinUl…

I'm having some trouble with mine.
The model that I'm using comes with blushes and little extra textures for the face and it shows up in Unity after I did all the steps here.
Is it possible to remove those extra textures in Blender or do I have to do it with PMX editor?
