Delete Miku and Learn About the Sample Dance Stage Lights
The MikuMikuDance Sample.pmm dance is busy with plenty of examples of what can be done and how to “do” Miku Miku Dance! My latest discovery was learned by deleting Miku from the dance. Once deleted, you can carefully watch the stage light manipulations. See things you may have missed before … like the big circles of “white light” that are moving about on the stage floor. Those are “floorlight01.x” accessories.
I added the “floorlights” to my stage floor by attaching them to dummy bones and moving them into position. I also added a couple of other lights: “light02.x” and a “light03.x”. I attached them to dummy bones and raised them up into the overhead of my stage. The effect is very nice:

When dealing with the lights, you might want to load another Dummy Bones (Dammy Bones “:o) just for use with the lights. You will see in the Sample.pmm dance that there IS a second set of dummy bones in there.
I study the search phrases that readers use to find LearnMMD.com and the use of Dummy Bones is a popular search term. Many newbies do not realize the power of the dummy bones … they can be used to animate, or at least give motion to any of the accessories. You can even mount the stage, itself onto a dummy bone so that you can fine-tune its position.
