MMD Tutorial - Animated Textures by 9broken4tears0 MMD Tutorial - Animated Textures by 9broken4tears0

I have moved to a new dA! If you have any questions, just leave them on Yukibun~

Warnings: Large file size, long tutorial, pink background.

This tutorial is reasonably complicated, but it came out of the fact that I figured out how to do this and thought I should share it with the world. It is a bit of a roundabout method, but it works!


:bulletred: MMD English - VPVP (Download "DirectX 9 Version")
:bulletred: MME - MME 0.27 + Starter Effects Pack (Look for the link that ends in "key="mme"")
:bulletred: Edit: Movies Effect Okay so this is just the .fx and .x file because people kept moving the original. If it doesn't work, make a small white bmp called dummy.bmp in the same folder as the .fx and .x files.
:bulletred: apngasm - Sourceforge
Other Stuff
:bulletblue: It's 4AM right now, and I've been working on this for the past 5 hours. Excuse any typos.
:bulletblue: As stated, this took me 5 hours. w@ Sleepy Yukibun.
:bulletblue: If you're having troubles and the FAQ doesn't answer your questions, just ask me and I'll do my best to help.

I never even though of using an animated PNG in MMD. This should help me make a nice little flame/lava texture. :D

It was a bit of a sideways thought, yeah :) I think it'll be a nice way of adding tiny animations that you don't really want to waste an entire model on.

It might have its uses somewhere! Somewhere... I haven't found a use for it yet, but I'm sure there's one out there.

Thanks for this tutorial. I'll definitely be using it soon!

Thanks! It's a cool technique, and one that I discovered kind of by accident, so I thought that it might be worth a tutorial :)

Definitely worth it :)

can you make a tutorial of hw to make textures or accesories?
9broken4tears0 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
That's super dependant on what you mean by textures. Making accessories would be more reliant on a working knowledge of various 3D creating programs. When I learn more of how to use Google Sketchup (which is apparently the best one for creating simple accessories), I'll definitely post a tutorial... sorry for the late reply! I've been off dA for a bit because of logins.

Anyways, I haven't been doing a ton of MMD stuff lately but I do intend to make more tutorials!

AS FOR TEXTURES: Textures are actually pretty easy to make, it's just the UV Mapping (telling them where they go on the model) that's complicated. I'll make a tutorial about UV mapping in PMD editor soon, if that's what you're asking? It's a bit lazy and lame but I'll try to do it soon. -adds to to-do list-

I like making tutorials I just haven't made more because I didn't know what people wanted xD

Thanks for the comment and sorry again for the late reply!
