I'm very new to blender and haven't found many tutorials that are made for newbies like myself. I would like to create a custom mmd model using parts, which I could import into vrchat but I am unsure how to do it. Detail would be helpful but as I only use blender for avatar creation I won't need too much outside of that.

Some of the main things I would need to know/learn:

  • How to move bones along with the mesh it came with
  • How to attach a head to a body (and attaching the bones together)
  • How to attach clothing and move it with the body
  • How to attach hair
  • Hair and skirt physics
  • How to change the size/scale of an object (I know there is a scale option in 'Transform' but it doesn't change the vertical scale of an object?)

I have already found some videos on weight painting, eye tracking, how to make it suitable for full body tracking, how to add accessories, and the unity side of things. Anything else I may have forgotten would be very helpful, thank you!

    $\begingroup$ "haven't found many tutorials that are made for newbies like myself" I doubt that, Blender is probably one of the most exhaustively documented 3D software out there $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jan 9 at 23:50

  • $\begingroup$ Duarte Farrajota Ramos - Then I should say I haven't found many that have helped me. The ones I have seen usually expect you to know at least the basics of blender, which I do not, and do not explain in detail how to do certain things. If like you say there are plenty of sources then there should be no problem helping, and if you do know of some videos or tutorials then please, do send them. $\endgroup$ – floyo Jan 10 at 11:55
