Hi,

Im having hard time understanding the concept of the reload animation.
I found out how to make a reload animation for the 1st person hands by taking out the magazine with one hand, moving the hand behind the camera and moving it back in front of the camera and placing back the magazine. This give the illusion of a new magazine being placed.

However, how can i do the same thing for a full character?
If i use the same concept, anybody can see the player actually using the same magazine again...

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks from advance.

Normally you would have an artist that makes the animation and you play that animation when you need to reload. I don't think it's very viable to do the reloading animation by hand, even the most simple one can take you quite some time.

If you just meant "realism" so to say, you can get away with a hand going to a pocket to get a clip, insert it and load it with some simple hand gestures. Perhaps these videos will give you some insight:
