Hope this helps people who don't know how to do it to do it. Just don't misuse the knowledge in this tutorial. Okay...?

It might be better if you download it or something....I hate how PDF files now appear. :( (At least on Chrome....its ugly).

Thank you so much!
I was all upset because I wasn't able to put on a clothe file that was in a PMX file, and now I can!

I was making my IbuiAryu Model and skirt was PMX File.

aah. i don't understand why, but i created a model and it continually turns pure white q.q

and i'm sorry at the time i'm posting it its minorly late and i haven't found a solution quite yet so if there's something obvious i'm missing again i'm sorry q.q

Oh! You need to have all the stuff in the file in the file out in the file the file is in.
so srry that it's so complicated to understand .-.
PawSillyKitty Featured By Owner Edited Oct 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
im so sorry
but what
i'm really confused q.q

I had the same problem too. It turned out that it was happening because I didn't keep the textures in the same folder as the saved model. 
PawSillyKitty Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
really? huh. i've been keeping all my textures together in one file, but all it does it keep it white.. the only progress i've been able to make is that the skin is colored, but everything else i attempt to add isn't.
it doesn't have much to do with using a TDA miku model, does it? i hope not, i really love those models qq"
estr357233 Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015  New Deviant
Hmm. I use TDA miku models too, and the one model I've made so far has turned out fine (although the clothes don't appear to have physics and the knee repeatedly breaks itself... not that I needed it for motions). Try keeping the .pmd or .pmx files for the clothing in the same folder as well. I did that as well, though I'm not sure if it'll make a difference if they aren't.
PawSillyKitty Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
ah.. i've gone kind of an extra step for safety and i copied every model's folders (other than the tda model itself) into the TDA models folder just for precaution. but its still kept them white.. and i've made sure the destinations in the materials tab has its destination set to the models folder.
it seems to me MMD really doesn't enjoy loading my models for me qq
estr357233 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2015  New Deviant
Then I'm really not sure.... maybe try re-downloading the models you used, or check for updates? Maybe it'll work better then.
PawSillyKitty Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
aaah my chrisis is horrid. i really hope its not my model or something.. best idea is the MMD and PMX are different versions.. but they're both up to date. aaaahh, issuesss..
estr357233 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2015  New Deviant
Hmmm... does the same thing happen when you use a different model and/or clothing?

Thank you so much! I can finally fix a twitchy Liu model I have! Also, that model you're using in the tutorial really does look like Cave XD I'm surprised I haven't seen a model of him yet.

pmx wont even let me open it ;;
LuckyBandages Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Pmx editor is giving me a problem. I can open the pmx model just fine and looks great! BUT when I export it to a pmd and open it in a pmd editor, the model is just disfigured. Like the arms and chest is ok but half a leg is missing and the rest is just everywhere. What did I do wrong? I just convert it from pmx to pmd and opened it into a pmd editor. Please help me T^T

Very helpful! At least now I know that I convert the stuff I have that are PMX files.
Notophile Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
whenever i convert a pmx model to pmd and open it in pmd editor, the textures dont show up?
Some-Crimson-Rose Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The textures must be in the same file if they aren't, it wont show up. 
TheWhaleDreamer Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2015

does it also work the same with clothes and stuff and do the textures and spa change along with it ... ( i don't want a white model or dress lol )? ( i really want to use a dress in pmd editor but it's pmx, i also need to follow these steps to be able to use it ?)

roosjuh14290 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015  Hobbyist
i found a solution ...
i found a site that had a pmd/pmx editor and it loads both pmd, pmx and x files.
sadly i do not remember the site cause a friend send the link to me and i dont have the message anymore.
but it would be a good idea to try and find it.
Sodapop179 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2015
do you still have the editor?
roosjuh14290 Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2015  Hobbyist
yes i do but i got another from a friend...she had one on her laptop that uses both pmd and pmx
Sodapop179 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2015
if you have either. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could send me a note with a mediafire link, dropbox link, google docs link, or wherever you can upload the editor.
roosjuh14290 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2015  Hobbyist
i dont know the rules for uploading pmx/pmd editor, since i dont want to break any rules i kinda feel uneasy about uploading it.
i found one here on DA, but i dont know if it is the same as i use… ( i use the 0139 )

I wanted to use a head that was in PMX form (the base was in PMD form), so I loaded both into PMXe. Then I converted the combination into .pmd.  I loaded it up on PMDE, and  the whole head was black (except the cornea(?) the white part of the eyes and the eye textures). The textures were in their correct spots, and everything was in place. Did I do something wrong, can you help? Sweating a little...

Heelllp :( I tried making a Levi model into a PMD file. It worked, but the problem was when I tried it, his jacket turned black along with his boots..How do you edit it back to the base colors?
