Making reloading animations using library meshes

Complete amateur here and first post, if this is the wrong category then sorry.

If I wanted to make a reloading animation for a game using meshes from the library, is it possible to somehow split the magazine away from the mesh? If so, how?

As far as I know, taking a simple Mesh appart doesn’t work, but you have two ways: making your own Mesh in Blender and animate it properly, or make two models for the whole gun and mag and you’re done.


Thanks for the reply.

Would it be possible for me to somehow take apart the mesh in Blender or will I have to create my own mesh?

You can always import the mesh into Blender and edit it from there. I did the same thing and I kinda got stuck on the separating part :confused:
