    I have a gun reload animation that i made in blender. It looks fine inside of blender, but when i inport it into unity, the upper arm and hand bones don't move from their original position, causing the mesh to stretch in really weird ways and it looks very ugly.
    I've tried searching for answers, but i have no idea what keywords to use. "animation" and "stretch" don't give the search results im looking for. even if anyone here knew the term for this glitch, that would be very helpful. thanks :)

    ok, so i figured out that the weight painting is messed up on the right arm. only the forarm has weight paint on it. but if this is the case, why is blender letting me animate the whole arm without weight paint on it? it's as if the weight paint is set up perfectly, but when i go to check it, it's not. WTF!?
