PMD Editor for dummies by Ziodyyne PMD Editor for dummies by Ziodyyne
Please comment/favourite before you run! I'd like to hear if it was useful or not ;v;

So you want to learn to use PMD properly?
Well then, lets get started! This tutorial is especially made for people that want to use PMD, but they don't know how to use the program properly yet. This is mainly focused at an audience who has little to no experience with PMD editor, so if you already know the basics, there will be nothing new in this tutorial for you. Sorry!

I apologize if it's a little bit confusing, but I tried my best to explain it.

Hope you enjoy!

Within the PMD (not the view box, the smaller window that opens) click File(F) in the upper left hand corner and navigate to the MMD Program on your PC, then open a model from those models, that's how I figured it out! :D

Do you still know how to make the accessories move with the model, like, when the model moved the clothes don't stay still?

ah, you'll need to look up a rigging tutorial for it! i handled rigging in my tutorial for hair, but it pretty much works the same with clothing, so try giving that a shot.

So, is this the Japanese version? Or the limited English version? I have the limited English version, but it always says that a whole bunch of stuff isn't supported or something like that... *confused and frustrated* :iconfliptable:

Kk, that's what I was wanting to know. It's just that for some reason, I get a whole bunch of messages that say that certain things are not supported, like color change or part loads. Something like that. Does that ever happen to you? Because it happens to me... ???

:iconziodyyne:
Ziodyyne Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

maybe it's your computer that misses stuff and is the reason why it doesn't work?

I have one more question: do you have the 0219 version? Because mine looks different than yours, and I can't figure out the tutorial... TT^TT I don't think that I'm cut out for this... Waaaah! Llama Emoji-08 (Crying) [V1]

ahh, i don't exactly know which version i have, since this tutorial is really old and i made it about 2 years ago ;v; the newer pmd editors are also more complicated. It also could be that you perhaps downloaded PMX editor instead of PMD. PMX is a lot more complicated than PMD, so that's also a possiblilty!

:iconangelicprincess653:
AngelicPrincess653 Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh! Okay. Yeah, I have PMx Editor. I wonder where I can find PM"D" Editor? Hmm... Nope, not sure where... :(

that explains a lot! just look up english PMD editor here on deviantart. the first few results are downloads to the limited english PMD editor!
