Set MMD Widescreen Screen Size balance Size VS Quality

A Feature Article by Reggie Dentmore on LearnMMD.comWhat screen size should I use for Widescreen in MMD? How do I set the screen size in MikuMikuDance? What screen size does YouTube recommend?


Widescreen is what most MMDers are lookiing for, these days... Set the screen size for the best balance of quality VS file size.

Most people enjoy a screen dimension of 16×9 “Widescreen”… could be 1600 x 900 pixels… but that’d be too large for me… my file size would be huge! For this project, I went to the View tab and set my Screen Size at 640×360… so that, at only 360p, I will get a nice image at Widescreen and a small file size for an easy upload and download speed.

File... Screen Size... and enter your numbers. Go widescreen!

YouTube has a few recommended sizes… the larger you make it, the larger, more huge, your final AVI movie file will be.

1080p:   1920×1080
720p:   1280×720
480p:   854×480
360p:   640×360
240p:   426×240

Also under the View menu, at the bottom, set your Frames per Second, FPS, at 30 Max. to guarantee that 30 fps.

Enjoy MikuMikuDance!

    There more supported resolutions, allthough the ones listed in the post are the most common. You can also use: 2560×1440 for 1440p (2K) Videos. You can use 3840×2160 for 2160p Video (4K)
    I don’t really recommend using them since to render at those resolutions is very resource hungry for your system. I only reccomend rendering in 1440p with a decent computer that is designed for a good load. When it comes to 4K you need a very powerfull computer if you want to process it without it taking an entire day to render. Also if your PC is to slow for a resolution and/or codec it may crash your MMD, or even make your entire PC hang and give you a blue screen of death (Crash screen).
