I know many of you came here looking for MikuMikuDance or how to operate it. For those of you who have downloaded the MikuMikuDance program wanting to create your own Vocaloid MMD videos but aren’t sure of how to use the program or need help with it, then this post is for you.

So here are the videos as below and hopefully anyone wanting to use the MikuMikuDance program will find the video tutorials useful. Oh, and if you haven’t got MikuMikuDance, read on as well for download links.
First things first, these videos are English tutorials for the MikuMikuDance Multi Model Version 3.4, which could be downloaded by clicking here. The newest version is Version 5.10, which could be downloaded here. I’ll talk about those later on.
