Yes, indeed! I use Metasequoia to make my parts. I began using it when I was younger because of its easy navigation, and ever since then, I've been using it! > u <

i'm a newbie, and i watched a video about step by step make a mmd model with metasequoia.

i saw that the navigation was so simple, so i think it will be good if i start my 3d modelling journey with meta :D

(you know meta's navigation is way more simple than blender, SU, 3ds max, maya, daz 3d :"v)

How wonderful! I think that Metasequoia would be a good fit for you if you are just starting out. It's good if you have just started with 3D modeling because of its really easy interface.
If you need any help, let me know. I'd be happy to give any advice. I can't wait to see what creations you have in store! :D

Thank for this tutorial! Do you happen to know where I can get the Aunguwrap plugin? I might want to UV-map things to more complicated shapes.

Hi! Umm....I have a problem. See...I have Metasequoia, but I don't have the UV button. I tried to use my own textures for it, but it won't map it like it's supposed to. And it won't unwrap like it's suppose to. I don't have basic mode, and plus, I have the newer version: Metasequoia 4.2.3. Is there something I can do? ^^'

Hello! :D
Have you tried un-checking 'basic-mode' in Metasequoia?

When you open up Metasequoia, go to 'file' and un-check 'basic mode'.

Hmm... if you say that you're using the newer version, that could possibly be the issue.  o:
Now that I recall, I think that I once tried to use a newer version, but a lot of the features were missing due to the fact it wasn't fully registered.

Yeah that could be the reason. Ahh man. But as I working on the textures, I took your advice, (even though I don't have basic mode and the UV button), and it worked!!! I guess I'm not having trouble anymore. Thank you!!

What programs would work in editing the texture?
Reply
:icontehrainbowllama:
Tehrainbowllama Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can edit the textures in almost any photo editing/digital art program. (Such as: SAI, Gimp, Photoshop, etc.)

Hi~
When i want to UV map, you know when you need to click UV, next t map?
I don't have that button, i only have map.~
Could it be because i am using an older version?
I've downloaded mine (it's the full version)

Can you please send the one you use?~
Thank you so much for the tutorial anyway, faving it for further use!

Is your version of Metasequoia set in "basic mode"?  If so, that could possibly be the reason why a lot of features are missing.

No, it's not ^^
I deselected it.

hello! doubt, I have the material texture, and I save in. x
when I open the pmd editor or elmmd, do not appear textured :/
I have that problem?

Tehrainbowllama Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hello! :D
Hmm... perhaps the problem is that when you export to .x, there is a pop-up that appears, and you probably didn't check the "UV mapping" box.

I sometimes like to use the atlas UV only when texturing clothes and stuff. But i really dislike the UV flat texture because all of the faces are overlapped, I like to select the back and flat map it then the front and flat map it sometimes so i can individually texture each side! :)
