Free Download MikuMikuDance…
…the 3D animation software featuring Hatsune Miku!
The first modern DirectX version of MikuMikuDance, MMD 7.39, was released in 2010…
That’s ELEVEN YEARS AGO, as of this writing. As computers have evolved and Windows has been updated, the creators of MikuMikuDance have made updates, too! The current, latest version of MikuMikuDance is MMD 9.32 … and the 64-bit version: MMD 9.32×64
MikuMikuDance runs great on modern Windows PC computers… you need a strong graphics card (at least a 1 GB cache) and a mouse. … and, being “older”, MMD also requires that you add a couple of older “C++ runtimes” to your computer as well as the older DirectX 9c “update”. … See our main Troubleshooting page for more info.
The VPVP Page…
LearnMMD.com downloads the latest versions of MikuMikuDance from the VPVP page… the original homepage of MikuMikuDance… and makes it available to you from our LearnMMD Downloads page. If you visit the VPVP page, you will see that the latest version of MMD is in section 1.3 and the 64-bit version is in section 1.4. The other material on that page has not been updated in quite a long time.
A Whole New World opens for you…
MikuMikuDance is it’s own world… a huge collection of characters, dancers, stage sets, props and special effects… all available to you at no charge… free!
What can you DO with MikuMikuDance?
You can make videos of your 3D animations… not just “music videos” but animations of anything you can think of!
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Notice how different each one is from the others… With MMD, the avenues for creative expression are unlimited!

So, how do I get started with MMD?
You have to START from the beginning. When I started to learn MMD back in 2011, there were almost no instructions available: just notes being traded by other beginners. I started this website as a place that I could share what I learned about MikuMikuDance as I learned it. … and so, over this last decade, LearnMMD.com has become THE instructions for MikuMikuDance with over 700 tutorials and articles!
But… starting out… everyone starts with the empty GUI (graphic user interface… control panel).
You learn how to LOAD a model… how to move the camera… how to add a stage… how to move your model… how to download motions and music files… how to add special effects… how to create what you see in your mind’s eye.
There you will see instructions for the most basic of what you need to know to begin enjoying MikuMikuDance.
Have fun with MikuMikuDance!
