You just mentioned that mirrors need MME to work, but I see that Diffusion accessory a lot of people talk about too; is that another MME thing? (And "Adult Shader" too? Someone on Youtube mentioned a Green Shader that requires MME also; I hope AS doesn't... x) )

Diffusion, Adult Shader, Greener Shader and mirrors are all MME effects.

Awesome tutorial as ever <3 Weird thing is that after loading the Diffusion thing it looks quite the same as after placing it at the top of everything else in accessories edit (which is awesome xD)

Yeah, with the more recent versions of Diffusion, it really doesn't seem to matter where the effect is stacked.

Excuse me, but when I'm using the Working Floor with a spotlight, the ground that is seen IN the light does not reflect anything. Like: it's still blue and white in this stage when using a light instead of reflecting the rest... Can you help me?

Increase the transparency of the spotlight model (its Tr value).

I tried to duplicate the set up again using MMD 8.03 this time to see if something else is going on. The settings I used are shown in the screen capture. See if this helps to resolve the problem on your end.

How do I load Adult Shader?
Reply
:icontrackdancer:
Trackdancer Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013
By using the MME editor panel. Select the model from there and then select the adult shader effect file you want from it's folder. There are (off the top of my head) 5 variants of this shader, each for a particular lighting condition.

Do you get the same result with another model other than the one shown in your picture?

Sounds like, unfortunately, your graphics card doesn't support the effects. You might (if you know what you're doing) try and tweak the graphic card's settings to see if you can get it to work properly.

On a working system, the effect gives an exact mirror image of the model.

I understand how to use the effects, but how do you take the actual SCREENSHOT without the Model and Bone name and all the other tools in the picture?
Reply
:icontrackdancer:
Trackdancer Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013
Under the file(F) menu --> Render to picture file (B)

Then when the save panel comes up choose your format. Screen size is used as picture size and you set that from the option under the view menu.

I didn't know about having to have Diffusion at the top. Thank's for that! And this is a great combination of effects + stage. I will defiantly consider using and expanding this in the future!

You need to set the screen size. Spending a little time checking out the functions under the sub menus will be very helpful in getting to know the program.

You're welcome.

Don't let the lack of a manual, or the language barrier intimidate you. MMD is not that hard to use and there's plenty of good info written by many out there. :)

but how do you remove the lens and the arrows, the 'local' thing and the name of the model?
Reply
:icontrackdancer:
Trackdancer Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012
To do that you use the "render to picture file (b)" function which is found in the "file (f)" sub menu. This is the control used to take screenshots in MMD.

You're absolutely correct, LAT models cannot take certain shaders.
