Move the whole Model with Box-Sel in MikuMikuDance

Box-select is a handy tool that helps to speed up your production. As you would think, you click the Box-Sel button and use the mouse to drag a box around the parts you want to select. I found it frustrating when I discovered that, every time I tried it, the selected items were frozen and not adjustable.

I wanted to move a whole cluster of bones in one motion and I used the Box-Sel button thinking that it would do what I wanted. I finally got it to work when I discovered that you have to select the whole character … you can’t leave any parts outside of your box. And … most important … you have to have only the Center bone selected before you start.

So, select the Center bone, click Box-Sel and drag a box around the character. You will know that your selection is successful when you notice that the XYZ rollers light up as you complete your selection.

Now your entire model is glowing with red bones. You can use the XYZ rollers to flip your model around to your heart’s content. Once in the new position, click Register to lock-in that position.

If you have other uses for the button … or another technique … please send me a note and let me know!
