Animating a shotgun... need help

Postby Chip » Sun Jun 10, 2012 10:07 am

I have shotgun in .blend format and .obj format with texture. I need it animated for a Quake mod. I don't do 3D animation, so I need to ask, could anyone help me with this?

I need it for use with Darkplaces, so it should be .md3 format.

What kind of animations do you need?

Only a firing anim? From what position - center position like Quake? Shell ejection?

What about pumping or reloading - that would need hands.

BTW animating in Blender is pretty easy.

Hey gb.

Yes, I need firing animation. Reloading will be done by hiding (lowering) the weapon, playing a sound and raising it again. Alignment should be to the right, but that's fixable from inside the engine (or QuakeC).

In conclusion, all I need is a firing animation, probably 10, 12 frames, and lowering/raising the model (again, 10, 12 frames, for smoothness). That's all. Shell ejection already exists.

I can send the shotgun model to anyone, via PM, if requested.

OK, send me the blend file.

Should the cocking handle move by itself after shooting?

Hmmm, I don't know. Taking into account there are no visible hands, I'm not sure. What do you think?

Also, PM sent.

Got it rigged. I'll make the handle move automatically.

It's late though. More soon.

Any updates on this @goldenboy? Will it be .md3?

I'm looking forward to use dDo (http://quixel.se/ddo/) on the shotgun.

Thanks in advance.
