After many months my first MMD video is complete! Learning the basics of MMD was not that hard but making a VR video was a great challenge! The biggest problems involved MMD’s lack of modern codec support and the post-processing workflow. EquirectangularX, the VR effect I used required rendering and stitching 10 videos! To make matters worse the only AVI codec I could get working was MJPEG that resulted in each file being close to 50 GBs. I ended up rendering the videos needed for one eye , stitching and compressing them, then moving on to the next eye. The process could take more than a day! Sadly, the video is still not perfect but for a first attempt, it will have to do!
Special thanks to the creators that made this possible. The model I used is Kaat by JandJ [Adult content warning]. The stage is A E S T H E T I C by AkuNekoChan. The Motion and Music are「Conqueror」Copyright 1st PLACE Co., Ltd. Finally the effects used are Ray-MMD and EquirectangularX (正式版 v1.1). It has been quite a project and even though I am not sure if I’ll try to make another VR180 MMD video I am proud to have made one with Kaat!
So what do you think?
