[PMD Editor] Skirt plugin tutorial by pika92 [PMD Editor] Skirt plugin tutorial by pika92
Plugin download [link] The link is in the video description, to find it easier you can use Ctrl+F and find "". The video also show how to use some advanced features of the plugin but it's too confusing for me.

To install plugin, download the file, extract it, rename the folder "skirt plugin" and put it in the following folder: your PMD editor folder>plugin>user>skirt plugin.

The plugin only works with PMDE version 1.37 or higher, I've tried with 1.00 and the english version but they didn't work.

I've been very hesitant to make character with skirt and long coat because skirt rigging is a pain and this plugin is a life saver. I love it so much and want to share it with everyone ^^

Excellent tutorial!... The only thing is that didn't work well with one side open skirts.
That impressive as they dominated amazing software in Japanese!

How do you remove all the unnecessary parts or just hide it when adding bones to the skirt? Especially the long haired models the bones tend to cluster together at the back portion.. I find it hard to select the bones for the skirt..
I dunno if you're still looking for an answer, but what I'd do is:
1. set up the model exactly how you want it and save.
2. position the skirt you want to rig/add bones to into the exact position you want it on the model. then, delete absolutely ever other physic, joint, and bone (you can delete all the other materials too).
3. now add the physics and bones. delete any of the remaining things that had nothing to do with the skirt.
4. save as a new file. open up the old saved file and add it.

I usually do something like this when I want to size an item with bones and physics already, so I think it'd work out like this.
