MMD Rentry Pastebin V1.007 - 2022
MMD (MikuMikuDance) is a 3D animation software. It uses a system of bones and keyframes to create animation. It runs on DirectX 9, and uses Bullet physics.
MME (MikuMikuEffects) is a plugin for MMD. It can load FX files onto models, which add effects to it.
MMM (MikuMikuMoving) is an updated alternative to MMD. It can load MMD's PMX, X, VMD, and other files, excluding PMM files. FX files may not be compatiable with MMM unless they are made for it.
Help for translating
Use screenshots, put them in the OCR, copy the text and put it in a translator. Google is your friend.

/mmd/ is always open to critique, advice, and shitposting.
Iwara: New trollvids. Allows uploading videos with few restrictions. Has lots of shitty MMD videos, being some random song/model/motion data slapped together. And some of them, I assume, are good videos.
Tstorage: File hosting service mostly used by the western mmd community. Needs account to access the catalogue.
MMD Archive: Booru with model downloads. Quality can be either low or high.
DeviantArt: Mostly SFW stuff. Lots of faggotry, rules, and the like.
Neko-Sentai: Long-lived English MMD community.
Moved to [discord] due to site cost issues.

NicoNicoVideo: The Japanese version of YouTube. Popular videos and links to DLs. Lots of MMD and Vocaloid stuff started here, no R-18.
Niconi Solid: Japanese host that provides a space for 3D modelers to post their models, motions and stages etc.
Bowlroll: Japanese host for downloads. You can search for models, motions, effects, stages and PMXEditor plugins etc.
Bowlroll: Same as above, but it's the R-18 side of bowlroll.
3D Custom MMD: Similar to mmda, except there is no preview.
Misakiru: Has nicovideo links with model DLs, most of them are good.
Japanese MMD Community.
Aplaybox: Chinese equivalent of Niconi Solid. Needs phone number to register an account.
Chinese MMD Community.
PMXEditor: Original JP version of PMXE.
PMXEditor JP: https://kkhk22.seesaa.net
PMXEditor EN: http://tstorage.info/hwvuikqm3435
Half translated stable PMX Editor by the folks of iwara, expect Japanese text when using. Some plugins might be incompatible with the EN version.
There are other English PMX Editors out there, but most of them are infected with miners and/or trojan backdoors.
MikuMikuMoving: MMD alternative.
MocuMocuDance (VR): MMD VR program.
Blender: Free and open source 3D creation suite.
