Make animated characters for free

Yu Higuchi is the creator of MikuMikuDance for Windows. It is free to use and allows you to create animations or videos. This software is best used on a computer with a powerful graphics card and a mouse.

Hatsune Miku is the star of MMD. The software allows users to create animated characters in 3D and share them on YouTube and other sites. You can use the included tools to get started or add extra effects using the MikuMikuEffects library. Blender is an open-source tool that allows you to create 3D and 2D animations.

Download and install

After downloading MMD, extract it to your desktop. This software runs directly from your desktop and doesn't require installation. Double-click the exe file in order to launch MMD. Take a look at the sample.pmm to see what you can do using the software.

Animations created with MMD

You have many options in the MMD user interface. Select 'Load' to open a model in the brown model manipulation box. To create your animation, you can use the different colored boxes at bottom. You can change the view, camera, light, shadow, and model. You can also change the interpolation curve.

The frame counter is located at the top left. It shows you your current frame and has buttons to navigate between them. You'll find a magnifying mirror and arrows that allow you to move left, right, up, and down.

You can select one or several bones to manipulate and use red, green, and blue rollers for movement. To save your move, click 'Register' and use the frame rate for smooth movement.

To view your model from all angles, you can use a camera perspective by right-clicking on the stage and dragging it. To zoom in or out, use the thumbwheel on the mouse. To save the new view, click 'Register" in the camera panel.

Software for complex animation

MikuMikuDance is a free tool that can be used to create animations and videos. It is easy to install and use from a folder on your computer. It is not for everyone, however, as it is a complicated program that requires a lot of computing power and can be difficult to master. If you are determined to tackle the challenge, it is best to follow the tutorials at learnmmd.com to create your character animations.
