PMD 2 Blender import/export script?

I’ve been trying to get this to work for a while. Just in case anyone’s thinking poser, the program I want to import/export pmd data from is Mikumiku Dance, it just has the same extension for whatever reason.

Anyways, I managed to get the scripts to appear in the import/export menu, but when I tried to import a PMD file, it came up telling me there was a script error and to check the console.

Currently, I don’t have python installed on my pc, but would installing it help these kinds of scripts to run? Or would I also have to check the console before doing anything else?

I’m hoping someone on here has used the pmd import/export script and can share their experiences : )

-Thanks in advance

i found this one on the internet using google

As for Blender telling you to check console - that means you should check console :slight_smile: You’ll definitely find more info there.

Thanks for that script :slight_smile:

By the way, I’ve had a look at the console but I’m not quite sure what to make of the errors I’m getting. I’m pretty new to Python.

That’s where someone from the forums would come handy :slight_smile: But nevermind. If the other script works, you’re fine.

Invalid or deleted file.

Sorry to bump this up again, but I am one of many people in need of a solution to this too. I have the last lines in the console posted here:

File “C:\Program Files\Python26\Lib\encodings\”, line 12, in encode
return codecs.charmap_encode(input,errors,encoding_table)
UnicodeEncodeError: ‘charmap’ codec can’t encode characters in position 1-4: character maps to <undefined>

In my case, seems like Python uses Thai encode file ( because I live in Thailand, and that’s why it fails to import Japanese file. I tried to search Google and can’t find a way to change its default locale thing.

I got Blender to import PMD using MeshIO
Which version of Blender are you using?
Which script are you using for import/export?

Talked with the script author who recently fixed a few bugs.
Wrote an article about how to use the MMD/Blender IO script, along
with VMD importer.
