That's the problem with backgrounds, they don't move with the camera. They are intended for use where the camera doesn't move just as with some anime sequences.

Use a 3D background like a stage model.

Use AviUtil or a post production video editor.

Could you make a tutorial of resizing the stages in mmd? I've been having hard time with it.

Just use MMD's accessory panel controls scaling function for .x type models. PMD and PMX stages can be resized using the PMD Editor. But as for a formal tutorial, I would be a little reluctant to make one on this subject as a lot of MMD stage makers don't like people messing with their models in the PMD Editor.

This is nice and helped a lot. Is it possible to get the background to wrap around the stage though?

No, that's why people use skydomes.

Hey, is there a way to rotate/twirl the image in MMD and change the perspective and whatnot? I only know how to move it around and make it big/small.

Nope you can't twirl or rotate the backdrop although it's possible to flip it left to right but I'm not sure what the controls are despite the fact that I've done it accidentally a few times.

So I tried both control keys plus the widgets on the bottom and top and all that's moving is the camera. Am I doing something wrong?

Maybe not. The feature can be quirky at times and will not work when certain MME effects such as Diffusion is applied. Try it with just the background loaded and see if it works on a fresh set up.

When i press ctrl it makes the camera movement slower not this

Your mouse arrow must start over one of the icons on the top right of the screen for this to work. Press CTRL, click on the icon you want and then drag the mouse. Might take a few tries when you first do this to get it to work as it's not completely intuitive.

> Magnifying glass icon is used to resize
> 4 directional arrow icon is used to move

And now you do - if you have diffusion loaded, switch it off first as it conflicts with this feature.

Never thought that the magic of CTRL works also inside MMD.

Both [SHIFT] and [CTRL] works in combination with the mouse buttons and makes it much easier to work in MMD

Hi it's me again, I just re - installed my MMD and I don't know what's wrong with it, but yeah somehow I can't manage to work this tutorial out, I really don't know what to do anymore~

Which should I press first again?

The:
Shift button while clicking and dragging the widget (which looks like a magnifying glass) or dragging the other one which looks like a cross?

Or the CTRL button? Or should I click them both?

Or well in images, do they need a format so you can drag it?

Sorry to bother you though~ It's just that I just come back and I want a refresher, and the best one I could come up with is by asking your help.

CTRL + dragging over either the magnifying glass or movement widget at the top are the only controls that work when resizing or moving the background image.

Image can be any format so far as I know. Most of my background images are 1280x800 pixels (same size as my monitor screen), but I often work with other screen ratios so I regularly need to resize or shift my backgrounds.

Does it work on laptops?
I can't manage to work it out~
Sorry if I ask too much~

It's really frustrating, when you learned it and then epic-ly failed to do it again.

I use a laptop for my MMDing so yes it does work on my laptop (but I do have an external mouse attached as my touchpad is dead).

I still don't have .avi files for bkgd playback.
