MMD/PMD Tutorial - Adding Attachment Points by Trackdancer MMD/PMD Tutorial - Adding Attachment Points by Trackdancer
Here's a trick borrowed from MMORPG models on how to easily attach objects to a MMD model (usually the hands). It makes holding x.file models of guns, bags, microphones, and other objects that can be held in the hands a breeze. You will no longer need dummy bones to do this and the attached/held object moves with the hands.

You can extend the procedure by adding additional attachment points for carrying (for example) a backpack or sword across the back.

Hope this helps. If you have questions please leave a note in the comments below.

CREDITS


Miku and leeks are the default models located in their respective directories of your MMD folder.

How do you attach the hair's head-bone to the head's head-bone?

Easiest way for you to understand this is to examine one of the default models in the PMD editor.

Nice! can you attach two bones to an X file like this? like a very long microphone?

You only need to attach it to one point on the performing model. Attaching it to two points is too much of a hassle.

Is it possible, though?

Ignore my previous post - actually it isn't possible as the x.file only has one attachment point.
