New MMD Rocking Chair Accessory Ready to Download!
A collection of TEN rocking chairs is ready to download for use in MMD productions! Nine of them have brightly “painted” surfaces (including one that is “Miku Blue”) and one chair has a wooden finish.
I created these models from a 3D model I found in the Sketchup 3D-Warehouse … a model by Sketchup artist “fridal8”. I resized the chair and added the various colors before converting the Skecthup model into a DirectX model for MMD using the 3D-RAD plugin within Sketchup.
The chair should be mounted to a Dummy Bone. The attachment point I provided allows you to rock the chair on the Red axis. Sweet!
MikuMikuDance is a free 3D animation software utilizing all of the talents of computer literate artists and dreamers, young and old. A Masters Degree in Art, Music and Stagecraft or Computer Science is not required … and in fact might get in the way of the pure, simple enjoyment of the digital animator’s craft. MMD was released as a promotional push to popularize Yamaha’s Vocaloid voice synthesizing software. SONY, SEGA and Yamaha are partnered in the creation and marketing of the Vocaloid video games. Being Microsoft DirectX based, MikuMikuDance is like a modern video game … without the game! It’s a complete set of elements and special effects, beautiful dancers and 3D Models, with a Graphic User Interface allowing users to, essentially, create their own DirectX game. Google Sketchup can be used with the 3D-RAD plugin to create DirectX .x models for use in MMD animations. Custom textures and background images can be created in any art program. I use Gimp.org’s GIMP 2.6 and the Adobe Creative Suite including Photoshop, Indesign, and Adobe Illustrator to create the special images I need.
