Hi,
thank you very much for your support request.

This is very easy:

  1. Create a new UMotion project for your sub machine gun. Usually you would just temporarily create an instance of your sub machine gun in your Unity scene. Then create a new "generic" UMotion project and drag & drop the sub machine gun (scene instance) into the pose editor's "Animated GameObject" field.
  2. Import the animations you want to edit into UMotion ("File --> Import Clips"). You can either select the whole *.fbx and then use the ticks next to each animation clip to select which animation you want to import. You can also drag & drop separate animation clips from Unity's Project Window into UMotion's import window.
  3. Edit the animation to your liking.
  4. Open the settings by clicking on the gear icon. Change export type to FBX (binary or ascii is totally up to you). Set "Write Mode" to "Update Existing File". Then under "Destination File" select the "SubmachineGun_Animations.fbx" file.
  5. Export your animations ("File --> Export --> ..."). The changes are automatically written into the *.fbx file.
