How to create fresh IK bones for your MMD model.

Part 1/2 of the IK bones tutorial.

This is my first tutorial. I said I had one coming and here it is. Although, the one I had in mind was not about IK bones at all. lol! Wasn't 'til I decided to make my own for my new tail that I discovered... uh oh! I'm on my own on this one! Not a tutorial in sight... not even on YouTube.

So many folks have helped me in this realm, I feel perhaps this can up some redemption.

Funny though... IK bones feel so useless in some aspects.. where most people just keep 'em as (3)'s.. physics still work nearly the same if used on em.. just less twisting. D'hell's gonna notice that, anyway? :< Well... this was the only tutorial uncovered, sooooo...

I hope I did my part. I tried to be blunt, yet comprehensive as possible for ALL. The tutorial is color-coded with arrows pointing the way.

Use the color codes and your memory of previous page's color codes to strengthen your comprehension of this tutorial. It also could have been a far shorter tutorial.. but I had to make it understood WHY you're doing this and that.

For the experienced editors, 1-10 can be skipped by you. Maybe 11-13 as well. I still have other uploads' descriptions to edit. Weeee, this is almost done! ...Wait, I lied..... the video. ARGH!!! I just.. wanna... play.. my MMO's!!

Enjoy! I hope this isn't overwhelming. You can do it, champ! Tread slowly, you'll know sweet victory yet!

I -am- lazy... but I will try to ...TRY to answer unanswered questions.. even the repeated one's.

You can download one from the website

Create a folder on your desk top then drag and drop it into MMD


Or you can use 3d Custom Girl xp make sure it has hard save control r to hard save

Use TSO to PMD
Drag in there and your textures and your mode should be there..

I want to confirm it says "The format of the input string is incorrect". 
Why?

this is very useful but im sort of having some glitches with my ik bones what happens is that they will say that are changed to 4 but instantly switch right back to 0 do you have any reason why?

For changing a bone to bone type number 4,you'll need to go to the IK tab and then register the bones that you want it to bee turned into an IK type , lol very unclear since there's no demonstration ;A; 

(And I dunno how to change a bone to bone type number 6 , I was searching for a tutorial for that and came across this one, which , didn't really help me ; u ;
