TL;DR - hawt DAMN MMD videos be looking FINE these days, how the f???
Hey all, I'm coming back to the MMD community after nearly a decade (SUPER shocked that it's still as active as ever!). While all the tools and models look the same at first glance, the videos coming out lately, particularly the R18 stuff, have some *amazing* physics going on. Am I missing something? Given how out of the loop I am, probably, but that's still a crazy enough leap that I was expecting it to be coming from a new "MMD 2" or "MMD Extended" lol
I'm talking like Source Filmmaker level bouncyness. There's plenty of clipping of course, but zero crazy glitching physics... Even the amateur stuff on Youtube (who are clearly just loading up the same data for a different model haphazardly) look GREAT. Now, the higher tier stuff with gorgeous filters & camera work look like they MUST be models ported into another program, but they are always labeled just MMD.
A model is a model regardless of the origin, and if you're willing to put in the effort they're portable to just about anything... but if you convert an MMD model into XNALara or Skyrim, it becomes an XNALara model, or a Skyrim mesh, etc etc etc, hence my disbelief.
Misleading labeling, or some awesome tool I'm not aware of?
I just downloaded v9.32 and opened up my craziest models that lagged out my old computer, and while they DID load up amazingly smoothly (on a 2018 pc), they moved as expected (like everything else from back in the day). I was playing around with MMEs sometime last year and nothing shocking jumped out at me then, either...
