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

New :iconupdatedsignplz: I created an updated version of this tutorial. You can find it here fav.me/dbvo83i


I decided to make a MMD to Blender tutorial because all the ones I found were a couple of years old and were hard to follow because of changes in Blender and the MMD tools addon. This tutorial uses Blender 2.75 and the most recent version of MMD tools addon.

Hopefully you will find this helpful. If you have any questions feel free to ask :D I've only been using Blender for a few weeks and I'm still a noob so 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 tho ^^


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.


Here is the link to download Blender www.blender.org/download/
They just released Blender 2.76-rc1 while I was making this tutorial. I don't think it's the stable version of 2.76 so I'm sticking with 2.75 for now. If you want to download 2.75 I can help you find it on the site ^^

(Edit: This tutorial works for all new versions of Blender)

Blender 2.76 has been released and I checked to make sure the MMD tools addon works in it and it does ^^

MMD tools addon works in Blender 2.77 as well ^^

MMD tools works in Blender 2.78 ^^ (Sometimes when you try to convert certain mmd models into cycles render it closes Blender for some reason. Just keep re-opening Blender and convert the model to cycles again. After a couple of tries it should work. If you don't want to deal with this you should stick with Blender 2.77 for now)

MMD tools works in Blender 2.79 (It still has the convert model to cycles issue where when you hit the convert button Blender closes. Just keep re-opening Blender and convert the model to cycles again. After a couple of tries it should work. If you don't want to deal with this you should stick with Blender 2.77 if you don't care about using the most recent version of Blender.)


(Edit)
Here is the link to download MMD tools addon for Blender github.com/sugiany/blender_mmd… (Do not download this one because it is old instead download the newest version by powroupi github.com/powroupi/blender_mm… It will look different from how it looks in this tutorial, so I recommend following my new tutorial instead.)

Bullet; Blue VPD pose files can now be imported into Blender. Download the latest version of the mmd tools addon by powroupi Bullet; Blue 
The export pose button has a traceback error and so does the new export motion button
