Hi. I've been asked by several parties lately to make some of my newer motions for MMD available for download and so I felt it prudent at this point to clearly state my policy on this matter moving forwards. First off, I do wish to thank those of you who have downloaded and used my motions for their work in the past. I really do appreciate the support and it's been great to see what other people have been doing with the motions.
However, I personally do not feel that my motion work is really up to standard when compared to some of the superbly crafted motions coming out of Japan. Their standard is way out of my league to be perfectly blunt. So I have basically come to the decision to no longer make motions generally available at this point in time. I will continue to, on a casual basis, to create/develop new motions. It is something that I personally want to and actually enjoy doing, but by the same token, I've learnt that given the way I do things, it is a lot easier to make motions on models that I have customized. What this means is that the data will not generally be easily transferable to other MMD models unless they happen to have the same customizations. Japanese motion makers do make considerable efforts to make their motions generally applicable and that's great, but I do not have their skill, focus or dedication in respect to these points. So for me to make a motion available that needs further work by the downloader seems to be a silly exercise.
I will still continue to make stages and accessory models for MMD generally available, at least in the foreseeable future. That is what I am best known for and still enjoy doing the most as far as this hobby is concerned. But with regards to motion data, I am just going to leave it to the experts. My own motion work will be restricted to work that I do for my own 'studies'. I will, however, probably through the medium of tutorials, share any new knowledge or animations techniques I learn.
Cheers and thanks for reading.PS:
If you're wondering about the picture of Ani-Chan by Digitrevx
above .. well that was made for another project that I've never completed but it's a nice picture and I was too lazy to make a new picture to headline this journal so .. ^^
Ani-Chan - Digitrevx (C)Ani-Miku.com
Azure Town - PASGT_helm
Various MME effects used
Rendered in MMD 8.03
Ani-Chan's hover platform was built using SketchUp Make and Photoshop 7. Honestly I can't remember why I built that in the first place ...
